Stickland, Leonard


Leonard George Stickland, 91, Mandan, North Dakota, passed away Tuesday, November 12, 2019, at St. Alexius Hospital surrounded by his family who loved him deeply. Memorial Services will be held at 1:00 PM, Friday, November 15, 2019, at DaWise-Perry Funeral Services, Mandan. Family and friends will gather one hour prior to the service. There will be no visitation, as cremation has taken place. Leonard was born October 3, 1928, at Dunseith, North Dakota, to Edward and Alice (Striker) Stickland. He was raised on the family farm until age 12 when his family moved to Dunseith where he graduated from high school in 1947. He attended Minot State Teachers College and taught school for two years. On December 18, 1948, he married Eleanor Awalt in Seattle, Washington. He joined the Teamsters Union in 1952 and drove tanker truck. The highlight of his working career was going to Greenland in 1959 and working as a heavy equipment operator building a radar base on the icecaps. Leonard’s greatest joy was the time spent with his grandchildren – teaching them to drive, to shoot a gun or drive a boat. His children and grandchildren will never forget his many pranks and sense of humor. Leonard enjoyed restoring old cars, and moose hunting in Canada. He traveled to all of the US states except Maine. He is survived by his wife, Eleanor; three daughters, Margaret Gress, Atlanta, Georgia, Barbara (Mark) Knoll, Richfield, Minnesota, and Kim (John) Gleich, Wisconsin; one son, Michael Stickland, Mandan; son-in-law George Gress; nine grandchildren, Michael, Brian (Jena), Andrew, and Anthony (Stacy) Gress, Dustin Knoll, Paul, Kelsey (Joe), Adam, and Kyle Gleich; and four great-grand-daughters, Anna, Avary, Natalie and Eleanor Gress. He also leaves behind his furry friend, Charlie. Leonard was preceded in death by his parents, son David; granddaughter, Mariah Gleich; five sisters, Joy Peterson, Lois Nugent, Doris Bousche, Marion McFadden, and Delma Beaudry, and two brothers, Bob and Ennis.

Thanks, LaRose for this info. We knew about Darrel Fassett’s passing, but had no idea that Leonard Stickland had passed away.

We extend our condolences to Leonard’s family too, with his passing.
