Leonard G. Voorhees
April 9, 1925 - March 20, 2016
 
 
Leonard Gordon Voorhees, age 90, was born on April 9, 1925 on the family farm in Swenoda Township, Swift County, Minnesota, the son of Henry S. and Ethel B. (Huston) Voorhees. He was baptized and confirmed and grew up on the family farm near Danvers. He attended school at District #34 in Swenoda Township. Leonard served his country during WWII in the United States Army from May 14, 1945 to November 26, 1946.
 
On August 20, 1953, Leonard was united in marriage to Margaret Mary Nagler at Church of the Visitation in Danvers by Father Doerrer. This union was blessed with over 63 years of marriage. He lived and farmed on the family farm his entire life and he started LenMar Farms. He was a member of the Minnesota Guernsey Association, the DHIA, Mid America Dairy, and served as an officer for 34th School District. He enjoyed dairy farming, milking his registered Guernsey cows, working in his shop, and hunting. He enjoyed showing dairy cattle and watching his sons and grandchildren show their   4-H livestock.
 
Leonard’s wish was to pass from this life in his home on the family farm, where he had been born. He was called from this life on Sunday morning, March 20, 2016, at his home in Swenoda Township.
 
He is survived by his wife, Margaret Voorhees of Danvers; two sons, Kevin (Kim) Voorhees of Benson and Craig (Celeste) Voorhees of Murdock; five grandchildren: Dustin (Erin) Voorhees, Andy (Lyndsie) Voorhees, Chelsea (Nick) Lundberg, Kaylee Voorhees, and Cole Voorhees; three brothers: Delmar Voorhees of Appleton, Jerry (Janet) Voorhees of Alexandria, and Ward (Carol) Voorhees of Morris.
 
He was preceded in death by infant twin sons; his parents, Henry and Ethel Voorhees; brothers: Bill, Richard, Norman, Don, and Max; and a sister, Pauline Voorhees. Blessed be his memory.
