To Amy( my classmate from PHS)& Alan(from PHS& The old neighborhood) Condolences to you and the entire Smith family...Most people don't realize the hard, backbreaking work that it takes to start and operate a small business.We all take for granted that there will always be a local business out there that will supply our needs,whether on a daily.,weekly, monthly or or on an annual basis.We all should patronize our fellow Jewish business owners.Lenny exemplified these ideals, with a hard work ethic and good personality...May you family remember alll the good times, and may we.all bless his memory!!!

Dear Alan, Sharon, and family,
Our sincerest sympathy on the loss of your dad. Lenny’s deli was our first stop many mornings on the way to school, and sometimes on the way home. The mac and cheese and chicken wings were a family favorite when my kids got older and came back to town to visit with friends. They would all meet up at Lenny’s.
Thank you for the memories, Lenny, and May you Rest In Peace.

Oct 21, 2019 10:39 AM

There is so much to say about Lenny, How do I begin. We met over 65 years ago when I was engaged to my dear late husband Lee Gorelick. We experienced so many happy occasions, wedding bar and bat and births and brisses. There was also the great sadness when we lost our mates. Lee died at a very young age and then Ilene passed some years after. However, we were both fortunate to fine wonderful people to marry and we saw one another through all these transitions. I hadn't seen Lenny for awhile but less than 10 days ago we ran into him and Carolyn at a restaurant. We had a great catching up conversation and I remarked to one of my sons after how well I thought Lenny looked. He looked the same as I remembered him looking when we met so many years ago. one of my vivid memories is when the Baltimore Colts won that famous game against the NY Giants our phone rang and Lenny and Lee were ecstatic about this great victory.. They were big Baltimore sports team fans and I just couldn't help thinking that maybe just maybe they were celebrating the Ravens fantastic win yesterday. Lenny you had a wonderful life and you will be missed by so many...rest in peace dear friend. Our condolences to the family.
