Waterville-Leonard (Lenny) Duprey Jr, 79, passed from this life to his new life to be with his Lord on Monday August 30th 2021. He was born in Howland Maine on July 19th 1942 to Leonard Duprey Sr. and Rita (Bouchard) Duprey\r\nLenny started working at a very early age and maintained that work ethnic right up to the day he passed. He had many jobs throughout his life, but the job he loved the most was Champions Fitness Club where he has worked for the last 34 years. In the early morning hours for those 34 years, through all kinds of weather Lenny would make his way to the club, either by bike or sometimes walking the mile and half only resorting in later years to a taxi. He loved his work family and he especially loved all the members. His goal everyday was to be at Champions to help in any way he could and to meet and chat with all his friends. He was free with his hugs and would never miss an opportunity to tell the ladies how beautiful they looked. Lenny was so special to so many. His family and friends was his whole world. He loved them and in turn they loved him. The way life should be.\r\nLenny will be missed by so many but we all can take comfort in knowing that heaven has gained a very special soul.\r\nLenny was predeceased by his parents, his brothers Gary, Reggie, Melford and Fred, his sisters Anna Watson and Alice Mendes.\r\nSurvivors include his brother Leo and wife Marsha of Clinton, his sisters Erma Blakney of Fairfield and Phyllis Dumais of Winslow, his life partner Myra Cote, her daughter Sandra Landry, who Lenny helped raise as his own and two grandchildren Alex and Desiree Packard. Lenny will also be missed by two generations of nieces and nephews that loved him dearly. To them he was fondly known as Uncle Pit.\r\nA special thanks to Renee Raymond and Lisa Lambert for all the help they have given us. Would also like to give special thanks to Mark and John Nale for all the generous help they have given Lenny throughout the years. Also would like to thank Tausha Duprey for her help with Lenny during his pass illnesses.\r\n\r\nFamily and Friends may visit from 2-4 pm and 6-8 pm on Friday, September 3 at Gallant Funeral Home, 10 Elm Street, Waterville.
