Arthur “Lenny” Leonard Pickens, 73, of Ireland, passed away in the comfort of his home on Friday, July 29, 2022.

He was born in Philippi on August 21, 1948, a son of the late Charles David and Alta Fisher Pickens.

In addition to his parents, Lenny was preceded in death by two step-sisters: Shirley Kay Sprouse and Mary Louise Allman; and one step brother, Sonny Allman.

Forever cherishing their memories of Lenny’s hard-working nature are two sons: Jason Leonard Pickens and Thomas Michael Pickens both of Jupiter, FL; one brother, Chuck Pickens of Ireland; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Lenny was a Christian by faith and graduated in the class of 1966 from Harbor High School in Ashtabula, OH. He worked in a foreign car repair shop in Jupiter, FL. Recently, he was self-employed as a mechanic and iron worker with his partner, Ford Gregory. Lenny liked to go fishing, ride in his side-by-side, collect antiques, and attend the WVU Mountaineer football games
