Leonard was a superintendent for Christensen & Griffith Construction Company for 47 years. He was a hard-working perfectionist. He was always willing to help with projects, but he only knew how to do things one way — the right way. Just ask anyone who knew him.
Leonard loved snowmobiling, four-wheeling, watching cowboy movies, and spending time with his family. Many friends and family enjoyed Leonard’s toys and generosity.
He is survived by his sister, Barbara Christensen; brother, Ronald “Bear” Baetz; sons, Wade and Aaron (April); son-in-law, Darl Anderson; and 9 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.
He is preceded in death by his beloved wife, Ilene; daughters, Denise Anderson and Lori Gagnon; and infant son, Leonard Wade.
