Leonard A. Marcoux “Lenny” (84) was called safely home on October 25, 2023, after a prolonged illness. He passed away peacefully, surrounded by his devoted wife and stepdaughter. Lenny was born in Springfield, Massachusetts to Joseph and Phyllis (Smith) Marcoux on January 7, 1939. He enlisted in the army at the young age of seventeen and served in the Korean War before being honorably discharged in 1958. Lenny worked at the Monson Developmental Center for over nineteen years, retiring in 2000.
Lenny met the love of his life, Diane, after being introduced by friends in 1986. They married on August 12, 1989. They lived in Ware, MA until 2005 when they moved to the Southern Tier area of New York.
Lenny enjoyed many past times including hunting, fishing, gardening, but nothing more than game nights with his family. He loved playing any card game that got everyone around the table for some laughs and friendly competition. Lenny loved any trip that did not require an airplane or boat. He most loved going to the White Mountains of New Hampshire and the coast of Maine.
Those who knew Lenny, knew he had one of the kindest hearts, an amazing sense of humor, and was a great storyteller. Lenny was quick with a joke or a ditty and always the first to lend a helping hand, whether it be building a deck or snow blowing a driveway. Lenny had a soft spot for all animals, he brought home many a stray animal in need that ended up becoming a permanent part of the family.
Lenny is survived by his wife Diane; they were blessed with 34 years of marriage. He also leaves his daughter Andrea Wheeler and son Richard Marcoux. He leaves his much-loved stepdaughter Amanda Watson and her husband Sanders, of Wappingers Falls, NY and his much-loved stepson Jeffrey McGann and his wife Angy of Snoqualmie, WA. Lenny leaves his four cherished grandchildren Ashling and Marlie Watson and Gabriel and Brennan McGann.
Thank you, Lenny, for adding love, laughter, and excitement to all our lives. You will be greatly missed.
