Mass of Christian burial will be held at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, July 21, at St. Anthony's Catholic Church, Linton, with the Rev. David Richter and Deacon Patrick Cunningham officiating. Burial will be at St. Paul's Catholic Cemetery, Hazelton.
LeRoy Edward Naumann was born on May 2, 1925, in St. Paul, Minn., the oldest of Leonard and Helena (Raehsler) Naumann's seven children. The family moved to the Naumann farm northeast of Temvik when LeRoy was about five years old. LeRoy attended country school and Hazelton High School, where he played the trombone in the band. After high school, he was drafted into the U.S. Army and he served in the European Theater during World War II. Upon his discharge in 1946, he returned home to work on the farm with his father. Farming would become his lifelong vocation.
One weekend evening, needing pretzels to go with his beer, LeRoy stopped at the North Side Grocery in Linton and was smitten by the young lady working there. He married Alice Bernhardt on April 20, 1949. They were happily married for 63 years at the time of his death. LeRoy and Alice farmed the family homestead until 1975 when they bought a furniture store in Linton. They operated Naumann Furniture until they retired in 1989. LeRoy liked the business and living in town, but in his heart he was still a farmer. He continued to operate the farm alongside the store for many years.
In the late 1970's, LeRoy volunteered with the Emmons County Ambulance Service in Linton as an Emergency Medical Technician. He served in this capacity for about 15 years. He was always proud of this service to his community. LeRoy was a member of St. Anthony Catholic Church, Linton American Legion and Strasburg VFW, Linton Lions Club, Linton Chamber of Commerce and his favorite, the Linton Country Club. He loved golf and only quit playing when Alzheimer's made it too discouraging.
LeRoy is survived by his wife, Alice; one son, Richard, Linton; one daughter, Shelley (Hal) Morton; two grandchildren, Anika and Alex Morton, all of Burlington, Iowa; one sister, Donna (Ed) Lacher, Bismarck; and one brother, Robert (Mary) Naumann, Lincoln, Neb.; as well as 35 nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Leonard and Lena; his brothers, Richard, Allen and Gordon; one sister, Diane Kalberer and her husband, Conrad.
