Rocky Mountain Obituaries 10-27: Lewie Dene Gintz; Robert Arthur "Bob" Johnson; Raymond "Tiny" Drum; Del B. Manasil; Rose M. Brown; Burl Ray Young; Darrell Henni

Lewie Dene Gintz, age 72, of Lyons, Neb., departed this life on Sept. 8, 2008, following a long, difficult battle with lung cancer.

He was born to Clifford Leo and Jane (Jameson) Gintz on March 2, 1936, in Bismarck, N.D. He attended school through the eighth grade in Marshfield, Mo.

He served his country in the United States Navy for four years, where he attained Master of Arms.

Lewie held many jobs in his lifetime. He started hauling milk in his young years for a man that held a special place in his heart. Lewie worked his way up in the meat packing industry for many years. He then began welding and fabricating parts for a variety of projects. When his retirement years rolled around, he became an accomplished saddle maker and artist.

Lewie had a passion for life! He worked hard for all that he had, and instilled his work ethics in his family, but he always took time to play. He enjoyed family and friends. Lewie shared a love of riding motorcycles with his boys, hunting, fishing and boating. He was always up to blazing a new trail on the back of a horse. He loved the mountains. The Pine Ridge country in Crawford, Neb., held a special place in his heart. He would never tire of its splendor, and would always say, “Now this is God’s country!”

He will be remembered as a good husband, loving father and friend. His memory will always stay close to his loved ones’ hearts.

Lewie is survived by his wife, Patricia; his children: daughter Rita and husband Bud VanCleve; son Tim and wife Leah; son Joel and wife Eileen; four grandsons: Gergory and Dustin VanCleve, James and Jacob Gintz; and a godson, Gary Crandall. He is also survived by a brother, William Gintz; sisters: Faustina Scarbrough, Joan Fuller, Nancy Davis, Martha Klentz and Connie Renner; step-mother Lorine Gintz; and an abundance of nieces and nephews, and a host of friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents; and brothers Danny and Clifford.
