Leonard Walsh, 64

MARLBOROUGH

As a teacher, Leonard A. Walsh Jr. used any available means to get his sixth-grade students interested in science.

"He would play songs from the 1960s for a unit on global environment," said Ava Kelberman, a special education teacher at the school. "Nature was really important to him -- he loved the environment."

Mr. Walsh, a teacher at Marlborough public schools and a Boy Scout leader, died Friday on his 64th birthday of complications of liver disease at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, the Globe reports in an obituary today.
