It is with deep regret the Chiefs Office of the Mattituck Fire Department announced the Line of Duty Death of Leonard Llewellyn, 53-year member and Lieutenant of Fire Police Company number 5. Lenny was responding to a fire call when he was hit by a car. He was 82-years old.

Lenny joined the Mattituck Fire Department in 1970, and has been a part of the Fire Police since. He has achieved all ranks from 2nd Lieutenant to Captain.

Lenny was one of our founding fathers of our Junior Bulldog program in 1985. He was also a pillar in our Fire Prevention program. Lenny was also a member and Boating Safety Instructor with the Peconic Bay Power Squadron for many years.

His dedication to fire service has always been 110 percent for the past 53 years. Lenny was the Department Photographer for many years capturing every incident across town. Every story that included Lenny was said with a smile and a laugh. He will be forever missed and never forgotten.

The Mattituck Fire Department and the North Fork community has lost another great person.

Firematic services were held on August 28, 2023.
