My condolences to the Linhares family. Len was such a good friend. He taught me much as we worked together on boat projects and in his shop at East Greenwich High School. His advice was always welcome, too, on life issues. Len was a truly a mentor in the finest sense. When I think of Len I always remember his big smile while he was at the tiller or wheel of a sailboat heeled over in a strong blow. I will miss you, friend, but I know you are in the safest harbor.

So saddened to hear about Len’s passing. I only knew him from the Newman Y, but we had formed a great friendship. Len loved to talk and I would listen. His sweet tooth rivaled mine and we had many talks about where to go to get treats. He was a wonderful man and I will miss him very much. He had a lot of joy for living.
