  1. Len visited us in Baltimore this time last year on his round the world trip. He seemed in good health so we were shocked and saddened to learn of his passing. I was hoping to watch the funeral but am getting a message saying off the air.

    Len’s wife Nancy was my mother’s best friend and my godmother. He came every so often to the USA for a visit and we came to see him in Melbourne. He will be greatly missed.

  2. Thank you for sending this live footage of Len’s funeral; it was most thoughtful of you to do this as it made the event more real. I was very sad to hear of Len’s death but at the same time relieved to know he did not suffer for long. When I visited him in January I was shocked at how fragile he had become. At the same time, I had the impression that he was proving to himself he was still able to drive the car even as far as Yackandanda and twice to Sommervile all in a matter of three weeks. I knew Nancy when she was a catechist and asked Len to collect a tape of some songs for the childrent from the convent in Albert Park where I was living at the time. I can still see him standing with his back to the sea being blown about by the wind. Years later after Nancy’s death I dropped by Erowal St to see how he was and from that time on he became a wonderful ‘older brother’ who when I was discussing plans for buildings etc would ask me,”Have you got a plan B?”Of course I never had a plan B. I often told my students about this friend who didn’t believe in religion and certainly didn’t need it, but who was the finest human being I have ever met. Farewell Len, your memeory will always be in my heart.
