He was a long time communicant of St. Joseph's Church and then St. Luke's Church. He was a wonderful man with a big heart, very caring, always ready to help anyone in need to the point of taking from his own need. He placed others first. He loved doing oil paintings, self taught and would give them away to all he met. Baptist hung them for him throughout the halls on his floor. And he always had birds to keep him company throughout the years. He touched people's hearts and he will be missed by all who knew him. He is survived by his sister Stella Jameson and brother Jon Fitzsimmons and many nieces and nephews. A special thank you to Ann Moore and to all those at Baptist Health Nursing and Rehab Ctr. that gave Lenny wonderful care.
