  1. My thoughts and prayers are with Len and his family during this difficult time. Len will be missed by all his golfing buddies at Laurel View CC.

  2. Sincerest condolences to the Westwood family. I had the pleasure of knowing Len for many years and had the pleasure of coaching his son, Bob in Babe Ruth League Baseball. I would also run into him in the early morning hours at Laural View Country Club when I played golf before work. We would always say hello to each other and talk a little golf. He was a nice guy to have known and coaching his son was a joy. We could never get bob to show up on time for baseball practice because he was always playing golf. That’s why he was so good at it. He will be missed.
