Itâ??s been years but only good memories of this sweet guy. Early in high school, I remember waiting for the bus, probably to take us to an away baseball game. Lenny and I (and Iâ??m sure others, though I only remember Lenny) broke out into a WWE style wrestling match. Lenny was hilarious. RIP my old friend.
