Leonard P. Audette, 54, passed peacefully from this life on Wednesday, August 19, 2015 at his home in Marlboro, NY where he had resided for the past five years.
Born in Rockville, CT on November 5, 1960, Len was the much loved son of Ronald L. and Alice D. (Dupras) Audette who survive. He was a 1978 graduate of Rockville High School and later attended the E.C. Goodwin Technical High School in New Britain, CT.
Len enjoyed a lifelong career as a sales representative. His dedication to providing exceptional and reliable service earned him the trust of his clients and the families they served and created for him many long-lasting and special friendships.
Len was initially employed by the Catholic Church Extension Society in Bar Harbor, Maine, Texas and Pennsylvania. He relocated to Clifton Park in 1992 and for the past 25 years had been employed by the Messenger Corporation of Auburn, Indiana, a provider of funeral goods and fine stationery to funeral homes, as their representative in New York and the New England region. He was also currently employed by the Florence Casket Company of Florence Massachusetts and had formerly worked for the Aurora Casket Company of Indiana.
Len enjoyed golfing and was an avid downhill skier. He also enjoyed running and was proud to have successfully finished the world renowned Boilermaker 15 K Race in Utica, NY. He had once coached boys soccer in Clifton Park, NY and girls soccer in Mechanicville, NY and he formerly served as a high school football referee with the Capital District Football Officials Association.
Len enjoyed traveling and had recently, with his sons, visited Ireland and Washington State. He reserved a special place in his heart for Aspen, Colorado, Delray Beach, Florida and Bar Harbor, Maine.
In addition to his parents, Len is survived by his loving companion, Melissa Drake and her children, Haley and Matthew Drake; his sons, Adam Audette and his fiancé Kassie, Cameron Audette and Elliott Audette and their mother Debra Audette; his sister, Debbie (Nate) Harris; his brothers, Ron (Holly) Audette and Ken (Barbara) Audette as well as several nieces and nephews.
