He passed away peacefully at his home with his loving wife, Jane by his side, the morning of Saturday, September 7, 2019, having attained the age of 80. “Lenn” grew up and attended school in Crocker, Missouri. He made a profession of faith and had attended church in Swedeborg, Missouri. He later met Janie Faye Plemmons and the two married on December 30, 1969 in Olathe, Kansas. Lenn and Jane shared over forty-nine years together, and a lifetime of love and laughter, while raising their five children. Lenn owned and operated his own electrical business. He was dedicated, not only to his work, but to his wife, and their children. He worked very hard to provide for their needs over the years, and treasured each moment spent with them. He valued a good friendship, and sometimes in the evenings, after a long hard day of work, Lenn could be found socializing with his friends and neighbors. He also enjoyed hunting and fishing in his spare time. He is preceded in death by his parents, Otey and Rose, his five brothers, Heath, Fred, Dale, Bryce and Clyde; two sisters, Minnie and Alma; one son, Anthony, and one grandson, Levi.
