November 6, 1948 - December 3, 2021
Leonard (Lenny) Sozynski, aged 73, passed away unexpectedly on December 3, 2021 surrounded by his family. Lenny is preceded in death by his late wife Katherine Sozynski, his parents, Vincent and Sabine Sozynski, his brother, Walter Sozynski, his sisters Trudy Caito, and Theresa Sozynski. He is survived by his children, Adam (Tiffany) Sozynski, and Nicole (Joe) Diano, his brother John (Jill) Sozynski, and his sister Josephine (John) Hregdovic as well as many nieces, nephews, and fur grandchildren (who he loved dearly). Leonard was born November 6, 1948 in Lawrenceville and worked for the PA Turnpike for 26 years and was ecstatic to retire in 2011. He was an avid bigfoot connoisseur and enjoyed fishing, checking in on his siblings, children, and their spouses, and dropping off the Pittsburgh "bag of bags" for his children (who loved his surprise, unannounced visits). Len was a phenomenal father-in-law to Tiffany and Joe, often providing parental advice on tattoos, healthy eating habits, and the horrors of Black Friday shopping. He could light up a room with his infectious laugh and could always bring a smile out of those around him. He could be found sitting in his maroon recliner in the living room, yelling at the television and looking to the family dog for reassurance and agreeance-- The dogs never responded. A very caring man, Len always put himself last and made it a priority to take care of those he loved most. A true family man, Len left his mark on the world by not only telling, but living, the life of "Family First". A viewing is scheduled for Wednesday, December 8th, 2021 for 2-4 and 6-7:30 with a short service beginning at 7:30 at the Thomas M. Smith Funeral Home and Crematory Ltd., 930 Center Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15238 (Blawnox). Flowers, donations and condolences may be offered at 392 Whittier Dr. Pgh, PA 15235.
