On Monday, January 24, 2022 Lewis (Lewie) R Lenz went home to be with the Lord.
Lewie was born on the family farm in Clear Lake Iowa on February 15, 1936 on one of the coldest days in Iowa history, but that did not stop him from being a warm hearted husband and father.
Lewie was a member of the 1954 Austin Packers state champion baseball team.
On June 14th, 1958 Lewie married Nancy Dralle at 6 Mile Grove Lutheran church in Lyle Mn and went on to have 3 children, Cindy, Diane and Jeff.
Lewie was baptized in Jesus name on his 40th birthday.
Lewie farmed most of his life until he found his true passion – plumbing. In 1991 he started Lewie’s Plumbing which he operated until he retired in 2010 at the age of 74.
