Lenny's Legacy

My uncle Lenny Goins passed away Saturday September 9, 2017 after fighting brain cancer for 10 years. Our family is heartbroken but find comfort in knowing he is pain-free enjoying his favorite things like surfing and wakeboarding with his dad Gary in heaven. Lenny always kept us laughing and positive despite his health battles. He loved my Aunt Cecilia and his two daughters Callie and Livy with his whole being and he was so proud of all three of them. Cec, Lenny's mom Linda, and Lenny's sister Carol were instrumental in making Lenny's passing peaceful and Lenny undoubtedly felt so much love in his final days with us. We are so thankful for all he did for us and he will be missed every second of every day. 

Memorial Services will be held on October 8, 2017 @1pm at Steele Canyon Golf Club, Lenny's favorite place to play golf in San Diego. Please join us in celebrating a man who knew how to LIVE life, who knew how to LOVE. Lenny fought so hard for his health, for his family and for the memories they created together and we would love to share those memories and the memories you all have with Lenny together as well. 

In lieu of flowers, we are asking for a donation to go towards an emergency/college fund for Lenny's two girls Callie (13y/o) and Livy (9y/o). Cecilia and the girls will receive the donations directly. Thank you for your years of support and friendship for the Goins Family <3 




"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen." --Elizabeth Kubler Ross
