December 3, 1968 - December 5, 2022
"God look around His garden And found an empty place. He then looked down upon the earth And saw your tired face. He put his arms around you And lifted you to rest. God's garden must be beautiful He always takes the best."
Obituary of Leonard Burnett
Leonard Burnett, age 54, of Lockport NY passed away at Buffalo General Hospital on Monday, December 5th 2022 after years of health complications and a prolonged hospital stay.
Leonard was born on December 3rd, 1968 in Niagara Falls, NY to Donald Burnett and Elizabeth Gardner. He was the youngest of 3 children including Betty Sue and Forrest Burnett.
In 1996, Leonard married Patricia Bowers-Lyons. The two created a large blended family including 5 children (son Michael Ackroyd Jr., daughter Melissa Brady, daughter Tonya Session with son-in-law Anthony Session, and daughter Karrie Burnett) as well as 9 grandchildren (David Ackroyd, Dana Ackroyd, Lena Brady, Lexi Brady, Julian Session, Hailey Session, Rayleigh Session, Kaylee Session, and Timothy Neff).
Those who met or knew Leonard knew how much he loved God, his family, and helping others. He had the biggest heart, most infectious smile, charm and personality that made everyone he ever met love him instantly, he would give the shirt off his back for a stranger, and he never judged people. To know him was to love him and he had plenty of love and joy to share with the world despite his many health struggles over the years. Leonard was a prime example of faith, strength, courage, hope, and love.
We will be both honoring his memory and mourning the loss of an incredible man, husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend with services at Taylor and Reynolds Funeral Home on Sunday, December 11th, 2022 from 2pm to 5pm located at 70 Niagara St. Lockport, NY 14094. Please feel free to come out to pay your respects and/or say your final farewells.
As Leonard would say "God is good all the time, all the time God is good."
