May 5, 1958 — June 23, 2014
The Shepherd found his lost lamb, Brad Lenhardt, on Monday, June 23, 2014, at his home surrounded by his loving family at the age of 56 years. He was born in Waukesha on May 5, 1958, the son of Gerald and Rosemary (nee Giese) Lenhardt.
Brad was a 1977 graduate of Waukesha North High School. On April 28, 1991, he married Marianne Brunner in Waukesha, where he was a lifelong resident. Brad worked for Waukesha Concrete for 21 years as the plant superintendent. Brad was an avid outdoorsman and especially enjoyed hunting. He had a love for photography and had a strong passion for his black labs and rummage sales. Above all, Brad loved his family, and he will always be remembered as a loving husband, father, brother, son-inlaw, brother-in-law, uncle and dear friend.
He will be deeply missed by his loving and devoted wife of 23 years, Marianne of Mukwonago, and their children, Elizabeth “Liz”, Cody and Garret Lenhardt, all of Mukwonago, and his sister Cindy (Don) Pannemann of Waukesha. He is further survived by his father-in-law and mother-inlaw, Joseph and Marlene Brunner of Waukesha; his brothers-in-law and sistersin- law, Kathleen (Dennis) Arquette, John (Laurie) Brunner, Janet (Del) Stubbs, Linda (Jim) Janecke and Linda Brunner; along with nieces, nephews, greatnieces, great-nephews, cousins, other relatives and many friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Gerald and Rosemary Lenhardt, and his brother-in-law Joseph F. Brunner.
The family wishes to extend a heartfelt thank you to Dr. Joel Lanz, his staff and to Vitas Innovative Hospice Care for their kind and gentle care provided to Brad.
