  1. I met Mr Fezzone when I worked for CRC Scrap Metal. He really left a lasting impression on me. He was so upbeat and so full of compassion. Prayers for peace that surpasses all understanding.

  2. Remember Lenny from the Grand ave days. Hung out with Paul on occasion. Worked with his dad putting in carpet. He was one of the funniest guys I knew and a great race car driver. He kept me busy at Diana’s auto body fixing the car after a race with the rest of the crew. He made a profound impact on me as a teenager. My condolences to the family.

  3. Vanna, so sorry for your loss! Sorry I can’t be there for you!i don’t drive far and I don’t drive at night.i really am so sorry for you 🌹

  4. Today is 4-9-2020, this Leonards’ Brother’s friend, Ron. Everyone called me Ronald. I’m so sorry for your loss. My memories of Leonard were some of the best people I have ever known. Leonard was a great Brother to Paul and Marshall Jr.. Once, while I was at Paul’s house, Leonard was playing some loud music on some cool stereo equipment in his room, we could hear it for sure… One specific song, where I first heard it, in the Disco era was .I Got My Mind Made Up. by Instant Funk…all the car stuff I learned from my Friend Paul and Leonard. My condolences.
