From there he pursued his greatest passion of boating. He was a Master Mariner with a 3,000 Ton License. Received many commendations from the Coast Guard and was an outstanding fisherman and loved to hunt. He was an amazing story or joke teller. No matter where you were on the East Coast and the Bahamas he would bump into someone shouting “Hey Capt. Lenny!”
