Lanny married Roberta Tuel in 1967; they had a son, Lanny Dean. Lanny and his second wife, Susie, lived in Burnsville, MN. Lanny earned his CNA certification in Moorhead, MN; shortly thereafter, he suffered a closed head injury, and had resided in Sheyenne Care Center until his death. Thanks to the amazing care, compassion and love that he received from the Care Center staff, and to the companionship of fellow residents, his life was as rich and full as possible. We are grateful for their care and ministry and for the comfort provided by Hospice of the Red River Valley.
