From the family of Leonard "Lenny" Jones
Lenny was a super UK Wildcats fan, a passonate supporter of Casey County, especially the Apple Festival, and made friends everywhere he went. He was a valiant fighter, losing a final courageous battle to survive cancer after overcoming it four previous times
He died from complications of cancer. He had the strength and conviction to fight off cancer four times. He attracted people with his infectious smile, his tender grumble, and his constant love of his family.
Lenny was one of those rare people that never met a stranger. He was full of personality and was one of a kind. Within spending 5 minutes with him, you would certainly know some of his passions. Immediately upon observing his clothing, you would notice that he was always dressed in UK attire. His number one love was UK Basketball. He watched or listened to every game and would yell at the referees if they dared to make a call that would not be in UK's favor. He passed out thousands of UK's schedules to anyone he made eye contact with, and had some unkind words for those who supported that other? Kentucky College Team.
He was blessed to be able to attend several home games for UK and even a final four game in 2011. When you attended a game with Lenny, you were always concerned you may be escorted out due to his enthusiasm and his love for the CATS. The Cincinnati Reds were also a love of his and he would follow every game and would be grouchy when they would lose. He was always willing to help with whatever was needed. (Unless it interfered with a Cincinnati Reds or UK basket ball game). GO CATS!!!!
He was a native of Wayne County, KY
Lenny was born Monday, August 10, 1955 in Monticello, Wayne County, KY to Ray and Allene (Bridgeman) Jones. He died May 5, 2013, in Casey County, KY, at the age of 57 years, 8 months, and 26 days. He is survived by the following:
One of his loves for Casey County was the annual Casey County Apple Festival. There he would meet up with old and new friends. He enjoyed boating and jet skiing on Lake Cumberland. He was a very skilled bowler and even enjoyed Wii Bowling where he would often score a perfect 300.
Lenny loved McDonalds and would spend 5 out of 7 days eating there, mingling with his friends. He never met a 100 dollar bill he did not like. He had a heart-warming smile and never hung up the phone without telling you he loved you.
He fought hard to stay with us, numerous rounds of chemotherapy and radiation. He loved his medical staff and always made sure they had the yearly schedule of the UK Men's Basketball games. We have great memories of Lenny being baptized on his birthday. He spoke about that day with pride and tears in his eyes.
We are left with so many memories. He focused on the simple pleasures of life and understood how important it is to spend time with the ones that you love. Lenny will enjoy HIS heaven, eating all the Little Debbies he wants and not having to share, playing rook with his dad, and UK always having a winning season. We will cry some, laugh more, and always remember you in our hearts. Love you Lenny and GO CATS!!!!
In lieu of flowers, donations may be given to the American Cancer Society or the Casey County Relay for Life.
