Leonard A. Mayo, November 10, 1937 to June 10, 2020
Suddenly and unexpectedly, at his home.
Devoted husband of 53 years to Joanna (née Procaccino), who predeceased him in July, 2019. Adoring father to Carla Meell (Tim). Silly and loving Bubba to Stephanie Fales (Nicholas) and Rachel Meell.
Len grew up in a tight-knit Polish-American family in the Port Richmond section of Philadelphia. He graduated from Northeast Catholic High School, attended Temple University on a scholarship from Food Fair, where his father worked, and was a member of the prestigious Beta Gamma Sigma business honor society.
It was at Temple that Len met his wife, Joanna, and on February 19, 1966, they were married. They first resided in Center City, Philadelphia, then moved to Plymouth Meeting, and finally to Wayne, where they lived for 33 years. On March 8, 1971, they adopted their daughter, Carla, who gave them both a lifetime of wonderful memories and love.
Len was a trusted financial consultant who started his own company, Valley Forge Consulting Corporation in King of Prussia, and built it, along with his partners, into a respected and successful firm. In his free time, he was a voracious reader and loved playing tennis and golf. The Phillies and Eagles were a longtime source of joy and frustration for him, as they are for many Philly sports fans, but he loved spending time watching the games regardless of the teams’ records. As a longtime member at Church of the Saviour in Wayne, PA he served as a deacon and was involved in many men’s Bible studies. Len was also very involved on the committee for the annual Valley Forge Leadership Prayer Breakfasts and supported many church and parachurch ministries.
He was known throughout his life as a joker who loved to tease the people around him to show his affection. His love for Joanna was deep and abiding and those of us left behind are comforted that they’re together again in the presence of Jesus. He would want anyone reading this to know that the eternal salvation that he found in Jesus changed his life forever and would exhort them to seek that same salvation for themselves.
Burial will be private. Memorial service to be held at a later time to be determined.
