Leonard Anthony DeFusco, Jr. passed away peacefully at his home in Mesa, AZ in mid-June 2018. He was born in March 1961 in Washington, DC to Filomena D’Elia and Dr. Leonard DeFusco.
Len was a hard worker when it came to his professional career. He was an experienced handyman and jack of all trades. He was proud to manage building maintenance teams at Arizona Country Club and Mark Taylor Apartments, among his various other jobs.
In his free time, Len loved to fish, hunt, read, and work out. He loved dogs and the New York Yankees. He made many friendships over the years, however, he would probably say that the best thing he ever did was father his children: Ryan Coast, Teresa Banas, and Leonard DeFusco III. He loved deeply and often and wasn’t afraid to show it.
Len is survived by his parents; siblings, Mark DeFusco, Laura Couty, Andy DeFusco, and Deanna Walker; children; grandchildren, Sofia Loree Banas and Raymond Anthony Banas; and a multitude of extended family and friends. His light will be truly missed.
