The Scholten family will always remember our trips every summer to Brook Park, Minnesota with wonderfully convenient half way stops in Napoleon, Columbus, and Jackson, Mi. It was always amazing how we could travel with our family of six, and somehow fit in with your family of nine and then ten once Grandma Clark moved in. Uncle Len and Aunt Beth always made us feel at home without making it seem like the chore that I am sure that it was. I remember one time in Columbus when we all came together including Aunt Nancy and Uncle Del's whole clan as well. It didn't make any difference, we all fit in somehow. Now with Uncle Leonard's passing, I am reminded that we all as a family have lost the last of our own personal “Greatest Generation”. While it saddens me, I am also so proud to be a part of this wonderful family as I am sure all of you are as well. Please know that you are in our prayers and I know that the sorrow of these last few days will be overcome with the happy remembrances of a life well lived.
With Much Love, John

My fondest memory of Uncle Len is when I approached him, thinking it was my Dad, and asked him if Uncle Len could take us on a boat ride. Leonard replied, I don't think he would mind if I took you out. And so I got a private trip under the bridge where he let me blow the horn and then down the river and back. What a special day! The gig was finally up when Uncle Len and I came face to face with my Dad. The twins had a great laugh on pulling one over on me. I had an awesome memory.
I miss you already Uncle. Love to you.

Visiting during holidays as a kid, Leonard was the calm in the chaos. It was always comforting to be around him, but he tossed just enough humor into the mix to make him a fun guy to be around also. I loved getting an opportunity to use his computer in the 90's, it was way more advanced than most at the time, he was way ahead of the curve.

With his long career, hobbies, house on the hill with a river view, and the large family he raised, Leonard lived the American dream to the fullest. May he rest in peace, my condolences to the family.
