Leonard L. Lachendro
Birth: Sep. 16, 1929
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Jul. 3, 2006
San Joaquin County
California, USA

Well, he finally did it. He bought the farm, bit the dust, kicked the bucket, (well he would have if he had legs.) Loved by few respected by many, and feared by most, he leaves behind his loving wife, Audrey, exasperating daughters, Barbara and Susan. Treasured granddaughters, Erika and Katie, sister Loraine. Preceded in death by his brother John. True to his nature, if you have to go in style, he picked the biggest monument he could find from which to toss his ashes. His last parting words to his family were, "Don't forget the family motto": illigitimi non carborundum, (Don't let the B---- get you down) A Marine at heart, he used his diplomatic skills to have two city libraries built to impart jewels of wisdom to friends and family and to make sure things were done his way. Those who knew him well will forever miss his warmth, generosity, sense of humor and way with words. This obituary was personally approved by him for he always had to have the last word. His brother, John Lachendro died the same day a few hours earlier in Pennsylvania on July 3 2006. 
Cremated, Ashes scattered.
