He was raised on the family farm near Lefor, and graduated from Dickinson High School in 1981. Following high school he did welding jobs at Lindbo, Dukes Welding, Diamond Truck, and DTE. His last job was with Wyoming Casing.

Lenny was a man of many skills. He had an artistic talent with wood, dirt, cement, metal, and trees. If you wanted something fixed, built or done to perfection, you would call Lenny, but not when the Broncos were playing. He also enjoyed traveling.
