We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Page Funeral Home
Leonard T. Rencevicz passed peacefully at his home in Warminster, PA on July 25, 2022 at the age of 90.
Len was born on August 27, 1931 in Dickson City, PA, the youngest of 10 children. After losing his parents, Konstanty and Bronislawa Rencewicz, at a young age he was raised by his elder siblings. At 18, after graduating from Dickson City High School (1950), he enrolled in the Army and served in the Korean War in the 92nd Engineer Searchlight Company. For heroic and meritorious service during combat operations, Len was awarded the Korean Service Medal with 4 Bronze Stars.
Service, strength and resilience were core values to Len so it is fitting that after his honorable discharge, Len enrolled in the police academy in Burlington City, NJ, where he spent over 25 years protecting his community.
During his time as a foot patrolman, Len frequented a local bank. It was here that he met bank teller, Agnes (Dolly), who would become his loving and devoted wife. They married in 1960, recently celebrating their 62nd wedding anniversary, and together they raised four daughters. Len and Agnes eventually moved from Burlington to Mt Laurel, NJ and then to Warminster, PA.
Len and Agnes loved to travel; from camping with their young daughters to traversing North America in their retired years, they delighted in exploring new places. They travelled as far west as Hawaii, north to Alaska and Nova Scotia, south through the Panama Canal, and many places in between. However, their most treasured trips were those spent with family. For years, each summer Len, Agnes, their daughters and their families would venture on week-long vacations, some to the Outer Banks in North Carolina and others to Caribbean Islands.
Another love of Len’s was woodworking. He could often be found in his workshop crafting, carving and painting. His family will forever cherish the holiday gifts that he so thoughtfully fashioned or the lawn décor that often adorned their front yard. When not in his workshop, Len was cheering (or booing) his Yankees or enraptured in a book, most often a mystery by James Patterson or crime fiction by John Sandford.
He is survived by his wife Agnes (née Duchat), his three daughters Barbara Schwartz (James) of Mt Laurel, NJ, Karen Malchione (Michael) of Landenberg, PA and Denise Rencevicz of Doylestown, PA, and three grandchildren Marissa Fisher (Eric) of Alexandria, VA, Nicholas Malchione of New Brunswick, NJ and Aubrey Rencevicz of Doylestown, PA. He is also remembered by his sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, along with a number of nieces and nephews. Welcoming him into eternal peace are his daughter, Diane Rencevicz, and many brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews.
A viewing will be held at All Saints Church, 502 High St, Burlington, NJ on Wednesday, August 3, 9:30 - 11:00 am, followed by a Mass. Interment will be immediately after at Lakeview Memorial Park, 1300 Route 130 North, Cinnaminson, NJ.
