Leonard J. Roszak Jr., 65


Woburn — Leonard J. Roszak Jr., 65, of Woburn, passed away peacefully on September 22, at his home surrounded by his loving family. He was the beloved husband of Paula T. (Castine), and together they shared 44 years of marriage. Born in Methuen, he was the son of the late Leonard J. and Anne (Sinkiewicz) Roszak.

Lenny was raised and educated in Lawrence. He worked for a number of years as a machinist prior to a disability, which kept him from working. Lenny was extremely devoted to his family. He was very active over the years with the Boy Scouts of America and Troop 500 with his sons when they were younger. He was also a member of the Order of the Arrow. Lenny and his wife were very active parishioners of St. Barbara Church, and enjoyed working with youth ministries, volunteering at many different church functions, and always enjoyed the Sunday night card group. Lenny was always willing to help others in need and especially enjoyed helping the elderly. He will be greatly missed.

In addition to his beloved wife, Paula, Lenny is survived by his children, Joseph Roszak of New York City, Richard Roszak of Acton, and Jaclene Roszak of Woburn. He was the loving papa of Emma Lee Roszak, "The chocolate of his eye." He was the brother of Gloria Svenkonis of Derry, N.H., Linda Anjoorian of Andover, Joyce Roszak of Lawrence, and the late Donald Roszak. He is also survived by many more loving, extended family members.
