God reeled in a rugged angel, Lance Wayne Lennen, age 19, of Snow Lake, Fremont, Indiana, Monday, January 20, 2020 while he was ice fishing at Snow Lake.

He was born on August 3, 2000 in Indianapolis, Indiana to Lisa Sue Lennen and John Wesley Lennen.

Lance attended Fremont Schools until his sophomore year, and graduated from Prairie Heights High School in 2019.

Survivors include his mother, Lisa Lennen (Don Cary) of Snow Lake, Fremont, Indiana, his father, John Lennen (Nicole Shaffer) of Snow Lake, Fremont, Indiana, his younger brother and confidant, Lucas Lennen of Snow Lake, Fremont, Indiana, beloved grandparents, Wayne & Bonnie Spallinger of Pleasant Lake, Indiana, and Carolyn Lennen of Daleville, Indiana, aunts and uncles, David (Ramona) Lennen of Washington, Indiana, Steve (Sheila) Lennen of Kernersville, North Carolina, Phil Lennen (Amy Miller) of Arcadia, Lori Kelley of Daleville, Indiana, Brian (Kim) Lennen of Fort Wayne, Indiana, several cousins. He will also be missed by his loving girlfriend, Kiah Conner of Angola, Indiana, and an intimate group of close friends from both the lakes area and from sports.

Lance was preceded in death by a grandfather, Leroy Lennen, and great-grandparents, Alice & Gerald Spallinger, Willadean & Howard Rodman, Alfred & Bernice Stephens, and Porter & Anna Mae Lennen.

Lance was always drawn to the outdoors. He was a natural athlete, with a particular affinity for baseball, and as an avid hunter and fisherman he spent every spare moment he had on the lake or in the woods. He so loved being outside that he couldn’t stand working indoors; jobs he enjoyed were always outside, allowing for him to make use of his vibrant, energetic personality and strength. Lance was most recently employed with Your Guy Tree Service of Fremont, Indiana.

My heart aches for your loss. I was just so sad to hear about Lance. My son Justin and Lance went to preschool together at Peanut Patch as well as spent time together at catechism and baseball . . . I will always remember Lance and his zest for life. He could always make Justin laugh. Seems like only yesterday and yet so long ago at the same time. Lance grew into such handsome young man.
You are all in my thoughts and prayers. May you feel Gods arms around you, comforting you and helping you through this painful time.
Love,
Christy Bulick and family

Ray, Hunter, and I first met Lance and Lisa at an Impact Institute parents meeting back in 2018. I will never forget when Mr Ramsay asked Lance to say something about the program, he just flashed this huge smile and responded, “It’s better than going to school!” 😂 my son, Hunter, was immediately sold...hook, line, and sinker! Lance was always very kind and a good buddy to Hunter, who looked up to him very much. Lance went on to work for my fiancé, Ray, at Diamond Marine and In typical Lance fashion, effortlessly fit right in. He easily became part of what we like to call, the “Angry Marina Guys” family. We will all remember Lance very fondly, with much love and tons of Laughter. That kid ALWAYS had a smile on his face! We are all truly sorry beyond measure for your loss.

Thanksgiving, we were making cute little ornaments from the younger cousins gifts. “Where’s the belts at?”, He said. I said “The kids used them for eyebrows.” “My dog needs a belt,” he said.

We spent a lot of time together during school, many classes together, we ate lunch together, and we played baseball together. He was my first baseman. It’s a sad couple of weeks when one of your good friends passes, it hurts. He was a great friend, I always valued our time together because I can’t remember a time when we weren’t laughing. Wether it was something one of us had said or because of one us was trying to be funny. He’ll be deeply missed.
