Leonard Albrecht, 94

Leonard Orrin Albrecht, age 94, of Howard Lake, passed away Friday, July 20, 2018, at the Howard Lake Good Samaritan Center.

He was born Nov. 3, 1923, at Howard Lake, to William Fredrick and Ella Louise (Shepperd) Albrecht.

Leonard was baptized and confirmed at St. James Lutheran Church of Howard Lake, and attended Dutch Lake School through the eighth grade.

He grew up on the farm in Howard Lake, and except for military service, stayed there his entire life.

Leonard was inducted into the US Army Air Force Jan. 5, 1944; and served until April 9, 1946.

After service, he returned to the farm, and, about 20 years ago, Leonard moved to town.

He enjoyed fishing and trapping, and his church was very important to him.

Leonard is survived by his nephews: John Domres of Waconia, and Jim (Janice) Domres of New Ulm.

He was preceded in death by his parents, William and Ella; and a sister, Gladys Domres.

The funeral service took place Monday, July 23 at 10 a.m. at St. James Lutheran Church of Howard Lake, with visitation one hour prior to the service at the church. Interment was at St. James Lutheran Cemetery.
