Sorry to hear this about Lenny - fond memories- Rest In Peace Lenny

Naples, FL

Extending my deepest, utmost heartfelt condolences to Cynthia and the entire Panicola family. I am 100% completely devastated to have learned Leonard Panicola passed away. Leonard and I worked together and closely bonded with one another from June 1997 until May 2002 at First Data Corporation's Network Operations Center. I used to always tell Lenny, he was like the older brother I never had. Of all the individuals I have worked with throughout my almost 40+ year IT career, I don't believe I've ever had the privilege of working with anyone as gracious, humble and absolutely wonderful as Leonard Panicola, may Lenny rest in eternal, heavenly peace. }:'o(
