    Saddened to hear of this. Met Len back when I was but a mere pup. Been a few decades.

    Condolences to the family.

    Very sad news.

    Len was a real great guy. I met him in 1979 at Louisiana state shoot in Buras La. I was struggling with flinching and it was getting worse every day. I was always afraid of release triggers. Len talked to me at great length about release triggers and let me shoot his gun and coached me on the practice trap. We shot singles and we also shot doubles with double release. I changed to release triggers the next week. I think of Len virtually every time I shoot.

    R.I.P. Len

    My condolences to Lens' family.
