I knew Lanny when he was a teenager. So sorry for your loss. He used to run around with a kid we called Rick the Rabbit. They had a lot of fun.

Lanny was one of the most talented men I have met and could fabricate anything in his shop he put his mind to. He cared about mentoring young men, was open and honest, and generous with his time and skills. My condolences to the family. May Lanny’s soul rest in eternal peace.
