Lee Ulmen Sr, 70, passed away of natural causes on Sep 13, 1997. Lee had battled cancer since 1984, but amazed all who knew him as he continued to live a vigorous life.
Lee was born on the family farm near Rudyard on Apr 20, 1927, to Benjamin and Martina (Ludwig) Ulmen. He attended Rudyard grade school and high school. He began farming while still a teenager, and farming remained a life long love which he continued to enjoy during his retirement years. Seed time and harvest, Lee was always to be found in the fields.
In his early adult years, Lee served in the Air Force during World War II. After completing his tour of duty, Lee continued to farm. In 1958, he moved to Bozeman and began working for Coast to Coast. There he met Linda Stoner whom he married on May 8, 1960, in Manhattan.
Lee and Linda spent most of their married years running the service station and then the Conoco Travel Shop in Manhattan. They sold the Travel Shop in 1985.
During the following years, Lee struggled with various health concerns and difficulties. Through these challenges, he discovered strength and courage through his faith in Jesus Christ. He actively participated in Manhattan Presbyterian Church. He demonstrated his faith as a much beloved friend and good Samaritan to many in need of a helping hand.
Lee is survived by his wife, Linda; three sons: Michael, Lee Jr. and his wife, Kathy, and Mark and his wife, Stacy; grandchildren: Jared, Derek, Jessica, David, and Katie, all of Manhattan; seven brothers and sisters: Alice Deck, Cliff Ulmen, Ellen Tschache, Victor Ulmen, Linus Ulmen, Denny Ulmen and Clara Cooke.
