Adam "Ed" Lenckus 1926 - 2018
Adam "Ed" Lenckus entered this world August 13, 1926 and left us on November 25, 2018. After enlisted service in the Army he spent a career in the Air Force Office of Special Investigations and began his relaxing retirement with a second career as a Special Agent for the USDA. His life was more than just his work as he filled the world with three children, seven grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren with his wife Terry who, as always, had been waiting on him. His practical and artistic woodwork adorns many homes. When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then...Death has been swallowed up in victory.
