Lenh Dinh Phan was born November 13, 1937 in Vietnam. He was united in marriage to Nam “Nancy” Thi Le.  As a Vietnamese refugee, Lenh came to the United States with his family in July 1975. They were sponsored by Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in Redwood Falls, where he has been a member of the community for the past 42 years. In Vietnam, Lenh worked as a telephone technician at the U.S. Embassy in Saigon from 1967-1975. After he arrived to the U.S., Lenh worked at the Southern Minnesota Beet Sugar Factory for 25 years as a Lime Rock Shovel Operator. When he retired in September 2001, he was second in seniority.  Lenh was a longtime member of Gloria Dei Lutheran Church.  He enjoyed fishing, gardening, tinkering in the garage, and walking at the RACC.  He dreamed of building a home for his family and was so proud when he was able to achieve that goal in 1991. He loved spending time at home, watching television, and was a dedicated NBA fan. Most of all Lenh loved spending time with his family.

Lenh is survived by his wife Nam of 54 years; sons: Linh Phan of Redwood Falls, Lon (Nancy) Phan of Silver Springs, MD & Luyen (Gam) Phan of Northfield; daughters Tracy Phan of Minneapolis & Tina Phan Jenniges (John) of Redwood Falls; grandchildren: Sam & Ethan Phan and Mila Jenniges; and many other relatives and friends.  Preceding him in death are his parents and a brother.
