Leonard J. Bachmann

August 6, 1935 — March 3, 2023

Leonard John Bachmann, 87, formerly of Fairfield, New Jersey, passed away on Friday, March 3, 2023. He was born on August 6, 1935, in Forest Hills, Queens, to the late Marie and August Bachmann, becoming the younger brother of Gus.

Leonards strong-will was tested at an early age after battles with polio and rheumatic fever. As a child, he would spend his summers in Greeley, Pennsylvania, where he enjoyed going to the local swimming hole with friends and playing baseball or handball.

Leonard graduated high school in 1954 working full-time as a butcher for the A&P. He enlisted in the U.S. Army the following year where he was stationed at Fort Carson, Colorado, until being discharged in 1957. Leonard would then serve 21 years with the New York Port Authority, reaching the rank of Sergeant, before retiring to pursue his own catering business.

On August 14, 1960, Leonard married the love of his life, Grace Bachmann, and would be blessed with two children, Len and Nadine.

Leonard will be remembered for his fighting spirit, passion for woodworking and the New York Mets, but most importantly for the love he had for his family.

Leonard is survived by his son, Len Bachmann & wife Victoria Lord-Bachmann; daughter, Nadine Bachmann; brother, Gus & his wife Marilyn Bachmann; grandchildren, Zachary Joseph & Michael Vincent Bachmann, Christopher Robert, Alyssa Grace & Kristina Marie Gazic.
