Lynn Cheyney Lenny Dean Cheyney

Lenny was born in Glascow, Montana on July 10, 1961 to Bill and Mary Ann. They had five children: Anita, Ralph, Ronda and Darla. They all grew up in the Thompson Falls, Montana area.


Lenny met the love of his life, Carol Ann Netcher of Vale, Oregon in Reno, Nevada and their love for each other grew from that day.


They were married May 17, 1982 and blessed with three amazing children Jennifer, Lenny Jr. and Gary.


Lenny had many passions in his life, his first was his family and friends. Being the uncle to his many nieces and nephews, a caring son and brother-in-law, and the “other dad” to many kids. In the last few years he became “Papa”, a title he was very proud of, having Toby, Madison and Jaxon to love.


He was perfecting his artist skills with his antler art, carving chain saws, coffee cups, axes, binoculars, spoons, hand saws and numerous other items all carved from antlers to create old style logging and camping scenes.


Lenny also enjoyed hunting, fishing, bowling, drawing, assembling models, his Seattle Seahawks and a mean game of Pinball.


Lenny touched many lives and will be greatly missed.
