I didn't know, until....now....    :(
Leornard Greenberg passed away earlier this year 

 

 

I just would like to say thanks to him and all he did for the former Coleco Industries brand

I could not be enough thankful to what he all did, starting his career with his father, Maurice

 

Also, my sincere condolences to the families

Thanks for everything Leonard!  

I always, and will still admiring you

 

Rest in peace

My condolences to the family

A family is very important, and we here because of the Coleco Industries... just like a family.

Respect

These guys, like a number of guys at Atari, just made my childhood (and beyond).

 

No politics or nonsense going on then, you just put your ideas and time and effort into the product and marketing.

 

I love them all.
