Obituary of LeRoy Athmann
LeRoy Athmann January 9, 1943 – March 17, 2022
LeRoy "Lee" Athmann passed away peacefully at home on March 17, 2022. Lee is survived by his wife, Joanne, sons Troy (Vicki) and Chad (Cara), grandchildren Peyton and Ashlee, great-grandchild Landyn, brothers Dennis (Kathy) and Duane (Beverly). Preceded in death by father Alphonse Athmann and mother Florence, brother Allen and sisters Geraldine and Marcy.
Lee was born to parents Alphonse and Florence and grew up in Belgrade, Minnesota. While in Minnesota he attended Belgrade High School and started his career in construction with friend Mike Bradley. Later he started working for Medtronic. Lee met his wife Joanne in 1973, while working there and they have been married for 48 years.
Lee and Joanne moved to Colorado in 1996 and enjoyed living nearby their sons and their families. Lee and Joanne enjoyed the Colorado weather and enjoyed taking walks in the neighborhood and connecting with their neighbors. Always ready with a smile, a joke, and some food to share. Lee leaned into his Colorado life and converted to be a true Broncos fans, much to the chagrin of his sons who always ribbed him for giving up on their beloved Vikings.
Lee spent much of his time volunteering within the community of Firestone and was very passionate about ensuring senior citizens had access to meals. In serving that mission, Lee worked closely with the Meals on Wheels organization, the Weld County Food Bank and the New Horizons Baptist Church. He was involved in local politics, served on several boards, and always interested in doing the right thing for the community. Lee touched a lot of lives through his volunteer work and will surely be missed by his family, friends, and the community.
