Obituary of Leonard Cohen


Leonard Cohen

9.30.1945 – 11.26.2023

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Leonard Cohen, a loving father and grandfather.  Lenny passed away peacefully, leaving behind two daughters and one grandson and a legacy of love, dedication, and strength.


Born in Brooklyn, New York, Lenny got married at age 25 and moved to Connecticut to raise his family.  He then moved to Fort Lauderdale in his 60s where he lived out the remainder of his life with his partner, Bonnie.  Lenny loved his two daughters very much and they were a source of great pride. His hard work and determination were driven by his desire to provide for his family, ensuring that they had everything they needed, including memorable family vacations that will be cherished forever.  Every vacation, regardless of location, involved a trip to the beach or lake and activities focused on enjoying nature, which inspired his daughter to a career in marine science and policy.  Lenny took immense joy in his role as a grandfather. His visits with his grandson were moments of pure joy and laughter, leaving behind memories that will be treasured forever.

Professionally, Lenny held a variety of positions and focused most recently on a career in sales.  He instilled a strong work ethic and was eager for his children to have successful and fulfilled lives.  In his personal time, he enjoyed swimming, running, racquetball, and going to going to the gym regularly to stay physically fit.

If you feel compelled to honor his memory, the family kindly requests that donations be made to a local animal shelter, rescue, or ASPCA in lieu of flowers.  Lenny loved any and all dogs and would be touched to know that animals were supported with a better life in his memory. 

Lenny’s memory will forever be cherished by his family, friends, and all who had the pleasure of knowing him.  May his memory be a blessing to all who knew and loved him.
