Leander Lingl Obituary

Leander "Lee" Joseph Lingl, 87, of Plainview, died Saturday, Jan. 18, 2020 at his home.
    He was born Aug. 23, 1932 in Bird Island, Minn., to Rosalia and Alfred Lingl.  After finishing school he moved to Theilman.  He married Ann Marie Hagaman Feb. 23, 1957 and made his home in Plainview.  Lee retired from the Feed Store in 1996, and from Wingert's at the age of 85, in 2017.  Often after working his day job he would work well into the night for local farmers.  Not one to sit still, Lee lived and breathed farming.  He enjoyed going on fishing adventures at every opportunity with family and friends.  He loved to use his ingenuity to fix or improve anything, whether it was broken or not.  His knack for making friends, family and strangers smile and laugh was second to none.  As a  member of the Knights of Columbus, Lee especially enjoyed playing Santa for the residents of the local retirement home.  Reading from his pocket prayer book and visits with Fr. Becker were comforting to Lee while be battled his illness.
    Lee will be missed by his wife of 62 years and 11 months; children, Mark (Debra), Daniel and Lori (Per-Olof); sister, Winnie (Bill) Martin; brother, John R. (Becky) Lingl; four grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; and other loving relatives, and adopted in love, Danielle.  He was preceded in death by his mother, father, brother, Jerome, and sister, Germaine.  He will not be missed by the squirrels.
    A memorial mass was held Saturday, Jan. 25 at St. Joachim Catholic Church in Plainview.
