Lifelong resident of Andover, Leonard D. Driscoll (Lenny), 59, passed away unexpectedly Saturday, October 10, 2020. Leonard was born on July 7, 1961, to proud parents Leonard and Cecilia (Kelley) Driscoll. An avid participant in all things Andover, he played in Andover Little League, the Andover Hockey League, and Andover Junior Football. He was a scholar athlete graduating from Andover High School in 1979 where he was the captain of both the varsity football and baseball teams. He then went on to continue his pursuit of academics at Bowdoin College where he was a member of the Alpha Kappa Sigma fraternity and the captain of the Polar Bear football team. He also received an M.B.A. from the Boston University School of Management. Leonard had an accomplished career in banking, financial services, and most recently healthcare consultant services. His proudest accomplishments, however, were his thirty-three-year marriage with his loving wife, Pam, and their two children, Kelly and Alex. In addition to his wife, Pam, his children Kelly and her husband, Matt, son Alex and girlfriend, Hailey, he is also survived by his sister, Sue, and husband, Steve Cobb, their children, Harrison and Lydia, his mother, Cecilia Driscoll, his mother-in-law, Priscilla Macukewicz, brothers-in-law, Robert and Edward, sister-in-law, Debbie, and countless more family and friends. Lenny was predeceased by his father, Leonard H. Driscoll.
I was in a government course with Lennie at Bowdoin, and I found him to be a funny, laid-back guy who brought a light sense of humor to many situations. He also made a big difference in Bowdoin football. Thank you, Lennie, for touching so many lives. Rest in peace.
