Leonard D. Rummo of Stratford, who retired in 2009 as a Westport police lieutenant, died Jan. 11 in Bridgeport Hospital. He was 63.

Born in Bridgeport on July 31, 1949, he was the son of Filomena Rummo of Orange and the late Leonard Rummo. He was a 1967 graduate of Kolbe Cathedral High School and later served in the U.S. Army Reserves.

He received his Associates Degree in law enforcement from Middlesex Community College. He began a distinguished 35-year police career as an officer in Baltimore City for five-plus years.

He then faithfully served the Westport Police Department for 25 years with dedicated service and retired in 2009 with the rank of lieutenant.

He was a member of the Round Town Cruisers and was most proud of his Lister Dragon that he built.

In addition to his wife Lucille, survivors include his two daughters, Kami Bernier and her husband Matthew of West Haven and Gina Rummo and her fiancé Marcos Diaz of Milford, two grandchildren, Matthew Donato Bernier and Katherine Grace Bernier as well as several nieces, nephews, cousins, dear friends, and his favorite dog “Capone.”

Calling hours will be on Wednesday, Jan. 16 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m at the Abriola Parkview Funeral Home, 419 White Plains Road, Trumbull. Funeral services will take place on Thursday, Jan. 17, at 9:30 a.m. in the funeral home and at 10:30 a.m. in St. Joseph Church, Shelton for a Mass of Christian Burial. Interment will follow in St. Michael Cemetery, Stratford.

Contributions in his memory may be made to Swim Across the Sound, c/o St. Vincent’s Medical Center Foundation, 2800 Main St., Bridgeport, CT 06606.
