Past Potentate Leonard A. 'Lenny' Sewell


Nobles and ladies of Kosair Shriners,

Past Potentate Lenny Sewell of Kosair Shriners has passed away after a long illness.  His passing was quite sudden but not unexpected due to his declining health.

Lenny served Shrinedom and the children very well.  In 1999, he lead a Kosair Shrine - Scottish Rite Unity Class that created more than 300 new nobles.  There was a positive net in membership at Kosair during his term as Potentate.  Lenny and Lady Carol were always an important part of the social activities and fellowship of Kosair Shriners.  He was a respected member of many units and clubs including the Legion of Honor.

His service as chairman of the board of directors of Kosair Charities lead to significant advances in the wellness of children and the name of Kosair in our region.  He served honorably and well until his retirement from the office of chairman in 2009.

Lenny will be missed but he is at rest.

Randy Coe, Potentate of Kosair Shriners
President of Kosair Charities
