Leamond D. "Lee" Maendele

Hastings resident Leamond D. “Lee” Maendele, 70, passed away on May 5, 2023, at home. His battle with serious medical issues in recent years showed his courage in facing life's challenges with a smile. Despite the pain, Lee came out as a hero and stayed strong until the end.

Lee married Julie Eickmann on August 27, 1977; they were blessed with two sons, Brandon and Benjamin. He retired from Kully Pipe and Steel after 40 years. He enjoyed fishing and hunting and loved spending time at the lakehouse. He enjoyed playing guitar and singing. He loved his family, grandkids, and friends.

 

Lee was preceded in death by his parents and father-in-law, Delmar Eickmann.
