Leonard Edward “Lenny” Warfel, age 48, of Peachtree City, passed away May 9, 2020.
Lenny was born on February 11, 1972. He grew up in Fayetteville alongside one sister. He graduated from Fayette Christian School in 1990 and went on to have a successful 30 year career in air freight logistics. He was a longtime resident of Peachtree City where he resided with his wife, Charlene. Lenny eventually retired in 2019.
Lenny was the Superman of his family. He was PaPaw Wenny to his precious grandsons and best friend to his beloved wife. The couple met 10 year ago at his favorite hangout spot, Tavern on 74. He was a regular there and was well-known by employees and patrons alike. He was very social and could make friends with anyone. He was social and friendly but also blunt and to-the-point. Lenny loved sports and cheered on the Falcons, Braves and Atlanta United. He watched football with his friends every Sunday. He was a great poker player. He was a fun guy who was always up for a good time. Lenny had a big heart and loved hard. Memories of Lenny will be forever cherished by his beloved wife, family and many, many friends.

Heather Fitz says
I met Lenny almost 20 years ago when he became the best neighbor ever. Then along came Phil and the three of us made some great memories in the air freight business together. Lenny could make you smile no matter how bad of a day you were having. We always made comments on each other’s post on Facebook and I will miss reading his comments. (He liked making fun of me as much as possible!) RIP neighbor!! Thank you for all the good memories.

Stevens Global Logistics says
Stevens Global will keep Lenny and his family in our thoughts and prayers. There were always four Lenny’s you could meet on any given day. The Falcon’s Lenny who always thought the Birds were going to fly higher than ever, The Braves’ Lenny who was confident but always reverted back to the early 90’s success, the workplace Lenny whose determination to make a profit was second to none, and the Husband/Father/Son Lenny whose heart was always warm, passionate to make others laugh, and always, always, did what he wanted to do – Live Life to the Fullest. Lenny touched many hearts here at Stevens Global. We have missed him, but he will always be with us. Rest in peace, although I know you won’t. You are doing what Lenny does. We are blessed to have been a part of his life.
