Leonard Edwin Gardner, son of William and Lillian Gardner, passed away on August 11, 2019 at the age of 89. He served in the Army from 1951 until 1955. He lived in Lakeview and experienced the flooding of Katrina, where he was rescued from his attic after 3 days. He then resided in Baton Rouge until his death. Leonard was a godly man who cared for many who crossed his path, he always put other first. A kind and gentle soul who went home to be with the Lord.
I have fought the good fight. I have finished the race; Heaven awaits me!
We love you Len and will miss you dearly!
