Former Westport Resident Leonard Kaminsky Dies

Email Favicon Facebook Favicon LinkedIn Favicon

Leonard P. Kaminsky, a former Westport resident who served on the town’s Planning and Zoning Commission and Board of Assessment Appeals, has died in Hawaii, friends said today. He turned 76 last Wednesday.

Kaminsky, who moved to Shelton several years ago, had undergone bypass surgery in the past and his death early Sunday was apparently caused by a heart attack, according to the friends.

Kaminsky, a retired vice president of Cone Mills Marketing Co., was last seen by friends in Westport at a recent Y’s Men meeting.

Active in many local organizations, Kaminsky was a past president of Westport Sunrise Rotary, a former member of the Temple Israel board of trustees, and was an arbitrator with the American Arbitration Association.

He served on the Planning and Zoning Commission from 1992 to 1995 and the Board of Assessment Appeals from 1997 to 2001. He was P&Z chair in 1992 and 1995.

“Len was probably one of the nicest human beings you could ever come across,” said Jo Fuchs Luscombe, a longtime Westport friend.

“He was a devoted family man and a good friend.”

Survivors include his wife, Eve, and two sons, James, who is editorial director of Playboy magazine, and Richard, and two daughters, Laurie, and Lisa.

Services for Kaminsky will be held at 10:30 a.m. Thursday at Westport’s Temple Israel.

Thanks for the tribute to Len.  This man was so full of life and such a joy to be around…we have certainly lost a treasured friend.  Had dinner with he and his wife on his birthday here in Hawaii.  Thanks for the memories Len!  Bud and Laurie Lush Honolulu, Hawaii
