Memories Timeline


  1. I had a friend that worked at Lenny’s bar. I talked to him right after he started at Costco. Very nice man. RIP

  2. I worked with Lenny at Northport Hornbacher’s. We would work late on the weekend together. He made me laugh with all his antics. Those were special times. I am sad we never reconnected after all these years as I just moved back. Lenny you will be missed!

  3. Lenny was one of the first people I met when I started to attend St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, where he was very active for a number of years. He was a great advocate for many and always had an opinion to share! Sympathies to Wayne and the family.

    • Yes Lenny was an active member of St Marks where he served in several leadership roles. I served on the church council with him and while quiet he was a deep thinker and was committed to the success of the church where he had a long history. His impact on the church and the community will long be remembered. Our sympathies to Wayne, his family and friends.

  4. Lenny was a wonderful person who made his life count. He took risks for the betterment of others. My sympathies to Wayne and his family.

  5. Lenny and I worked together several years ago. I always thought of him as a really good guy. so friendly and helpful. We bonded over our love of dogs. Every morning I would look for his ‘ramblings’. He will be missed.

  6. I’m so sorry to hear about Lenny’s passing. I was Lenny’s UPS driver at both his businesses. Lenny was always very friendly and I enjoyed seeing his beloved dogs. My deepest condolences to Wayne. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Take care and God Bless. RIP Lenny.

  7. I had sometime to play on the internet, while I was at work today, and thought I would look up Lenny and see how he was doing. I was hurt to see he had passed. I worked with Lenny at Hornbachers across from West Acres Mall, in the mid 1970’s while he was the Manager of the Diary Department at Hornbachers. It was so great to have Lenny on the shift, as the Evening Shift Store Manager, we all knew no one would be yelling at us that evening, and Lenny would make it fun working in the evenings, and you would feel it was great to just be feeling alive **, as Lenny would make you feel important, and special, just to work around him . I remember looking him up back when he was running for the Fargo Mayor’s Office, and to see his 2 businesses develop. Funny, I was a silent observer of Lenny all these years passed now, I had never been, back in touch with him after he left Hornbachers in the late 1970’s. Lenny always would do something to make you remember him by. Now, all these 46 years later , I now have live in Kansas City. Leeny, I feel you will always be out there, in the Stars, watching over us all.
