Leonard Lubarski, 83, passed away on Sunday, October 17, 2021, in North Star Manor, Warren, MN, with his family by his side.
Leonard Francis was born on March 7, 1938, in Wright Township, Marshall County, MN, to Florian “Floyd” and Agnes (Nadolski) Lubarski. He and his three siblings were raised on the family farm. From a young age, Leonard was skilled in operating machinery- he leveraged this into a 49-year career operating heavy equipment. He lived nearly 40 years in Embarrass, MN, marrying Shirley Gentilini on October 3, 1981. After Shirley died on February 12, 2018, Leonard stayed in Embarrass a few years until moving to Warren in 2020. He enjoyed his apartment, seeing his family, and being close to his childhood stomping grounds.
In addition to being a proud Union 49-er, Leonard enjoyed fishing, woodworking, keeping his big garden and yard in top shape, and deer hunting every fall.
He is survived by his children, Mike (Dierdre) Lubarski of LaPorte, MN, Linda (Dean) Isaacson of Crookston, MN, Bob (Sandy) Lubarski of Minnetonka, MN, and Veronica (Jeff) Halvorson of Warren; ten grandchildren; 20 great-grandchildren; siblings, Gary Lubarski, Shirley Anfinson, and Patricia Hoeper; and Shirley's children, Connie Hermanson, Deborah Hart, Cindy Forseen, Susan Austin, and Steve Gentilini.
In addition to his wife, Shirley, Leonard was preceded in death by his daughter, Tammy; brothers, Donald and Richard; his parents, Floyd and Agnes; and Shirley's son, Ray Gentilini.
