10 Condolences for Leonard Peter Krygowski

  • I’m going to miss you Dad, I’m glad you’re finally at peace.

  • So sorry for your loss. Len was an asset to our VOLC community. He will be missed. Praying you will all receive the Lord’s comforting presence at this time.

  • Len was a real leader–a person who listened, studied the issues, and knew how to make an effective decision. His being a really good leader was because he was a wonderful person. Len had a great sense of humor, was a kind person, and was a real listener and supporter of others. I thoroughly enjoyed him as a friend and as a team leader or member–depending the year we worked together. I learned much from him and could always turn to him for great advice. Plus, i just loved enjoying him in social events or community activities–he was always fun.

    My prayers for his family and those closest to him. I miss him and know just a piece of the deeper loss felt by them. I am replaying many of our interactions and they bring smiles. God bless you all!

  • Len,
    You were a great friend and partner, not a good golfer. You are missed and I hope you are at peace with the Lord.

  • Rest In Peace Len. I sure enjoyed the leadership you expressed while serving with you.

  • Rest in Peace, Len. We will miss you, we’re glad we knew you. Your life’s journey took you far and wide, and you left a positive mark. You will see your family again, someday I’m sure, happy, healthy, and full of joy. Until then, sleep at ease.

  • Bernard and I are deeply saddened by the loss of Len. He was a wonderful neighbor as well as a committed leader of our community. We offer our deepest condolences to Len’s family and to his beloved companion, Odette Haight. Bernard will miss he and Len’s friendly competition between their favored sports teams. Len favored the New England Patriots while Bernard supports the Texans. Once Len told Bernard he could not display a Texan’s flag until the team at least one Superbowl. The three of us had a great laugh at that. We will miss Len in more ways than one. May he rest in peace. Carolyn and Bernard Aresu
