He graduated from Fabius High School in 1954, and received his degree from Albany College of Pharmacy in 1958. He was a medic in the Army Reserves. Len practiced Pharmacy for 55 years, owned and operated Dwyer’s Pharmacy in the Village of Cazenovia from 1966 until selling the business to Fay’s Drugs in 1988.
