James Leonard “Lenny” Cousins
Sydney Mines

It is with deepest sorrow and broken hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Lenny Cousins, loving husband, father, brother, son, uncle and friend, on Monday, December 23, 2019, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, surrounded by his family and friends.
Lenny was an avid fisherman and enjoyed spending his Sundays fishing with his son Lance and friend and brother-in-law John Davis. Lenny was a beloved member of the Sobeys team in North Sydney for 17 years.
Lenny is survived by his loving partner and best friend of 43 years, Patricia (Patsy) Forrest, son Lance (Nakia), brother Warren, nephew Brendan (Jami), niece Erika, special furry friends Cheech, Zeus and Kitty, as well as many extended family members and friends.
He was predeceased by his parents Warren (Gumbo) and Mae (Glogowski) Cousins, father and mother-in-law Edward and Mae (Steele) Forrest, and brother-in-law Sheldon Forrest.
The family would like to thank the paramedics, doctors and nurses of the CBRH, as well as Dr. MacFarlane, Sandra Toner and Dr. Hickey.
Cremation has taken place. A celebration of Lenny’s life will be held on Saturday, December 28, 2019, at 10 am in Holy Family Church, Sydney Mines, with Fr. Jim Oliver officiating. Words of comfort may be forwarded to his family at www.jmjobesfuneralhome.com

So sorry to read Lenny had passed, I knew him from Sobeys, one of the best. His mom was in the hospital with Wayne’s mom and she couldn’d ask for a better son and Patsy was more like her daughter. If his mom was not having a good night they would call Lenny and he went right up to sit with her, any hour! He and Patsy were an amazing couple, God Bless you all!
