For the next 71 years the foundation of Lanny’s life was built solidly on the Rock of Ages. As a salesman at JC Penney while even though he learned he wasn’t meant for sales, he was able to gift his brother Keith with a sweet .22 rifle. As a coach he molded a young group of bench warmers into trophy winning hard working boys.

Lanny enjoyed spending time with his children and grandchildren, growing vegetables in their garden, canning and preserving as well as making the best sauerkraut outside of Germany. However, what he enjoyed most was preaching and teaching the Word, and sharing the hope to be found in a relationship with Christ.
