           Leonard Wofse, age 71, of Lexington, MA was embraced by God's love on August 7,2019. He can now fully bask in the light that he was so 
dedicated to passing on to others. Len was a devoted and beloved father to his 2 sons Christopher and Noah. He leaves his 3 brothers: Nelson, 
Arnold and Eliot. He leaves his sister-in-laws Maxine and Sharon. He leaves adored nephews and nieces, first, second & third cousins and 6 god-children. He leaves his former-spouse Norma, a lifetime friend of 50 years.

           Len was a beautiful human being whose heart was barely contained in his body. He loved, healed, inspired and comforted countless people. The light of his soul will always live in the hearts of all who knew and loved him. Len had a strong faith and he found numerous ways to celebrate God's love in his day-to-day interactions with people. He was an artful psychotherapist and skilled bodywork practitioner who helped heal many people through multiple decades. He would graciously give of his time and services, whether to his patients or wherever he would meet people - such as the dog park, church, grocery store, coffee shop, bike shop, eyeglass store, car repair shop, shoe store and local restaurants.
           Len was a dog lover. He loved his 4 dogs: Gypsy, Serena, Scooner & Klaus. Len loved to spend his summers in Maine, swimming in the waters of the lake while saying Hi to folks who passed him by in their canoes. He was an avid photographer & lover of nature, collecting numerous photos that captured moments of light interspersed throughout nature. Len was also a drummer who was forever tapping out rhythms on any surface he could find. Len took pride in his cooking, which was thoroughly enjoyed by family & friends - his specialty dish of eggplant parmigiana will always be remembered by all who were fortunate enough to get a taste.
            Len was a healer who touched many lives throughout his 71 years & he supported various humanitarian causes. He was passionate about Veterans for Peace & individuals with PTSD, offering his summer rental home to vets who needed a healing space.

Len is with God & will be remembered in our hearts until our paths cross again.


In lieu of flowers, Len has asked that donations be made payable to the 
administrator of his estate, his son Christopher Wofse, who is working 
to realize Len's vision of a healing retreat center for veterans with 
PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder).
