Leonard W. Anglewitz, age 71, of Winona, passed away on Saturday, March 23, 2019, at the Gundersen Tri-County Care Center in Whitehall, WI.
He was born on September 27, 1947, in Winona, to Joseph and Thelma (Norrie) Anglewitz, and honorably served his country with the United States Army during the Vietnam era. He was employed with the Chicago Northwestern Railroad, and later with the US Post Office, until his retirement.
Leonard will be remembered for his love of being outdoors, and he especially enjoyed archery; hunting bear, coyote, wolf, and deer; trapping; catfish fishing; as well as helping on his sister’s farm.

He was preceded in death by his parents.
