Cleon H. Lorenz

July 25, 1947 — May 1, 2023


Cleon Henry “Chuck” Lorenz, 75 of Minneapolis and formerly of Minneiska, died Monday, May 1, 2023 at his home.

Chuck was born July 25, 1947 to Charles and Coralyn “Sis” (Peterson) Lorenz.  He grew up in Minneiska and graduated from Winona Senior High School.  He served honorably in the United States Army.

Chuck worked at Peerless Chain for several years.  He eventually ran his own business, Lorenz Tire for many years.  Chuck loved his kids and grandchildren and treasured time spent with them.  He enjoyed hunting, fishing, trips to the casino, camping, telling stories and was no stranger to having fun.  One of his favorite stories to tell from when he was a child was swimming across the Mississippi River.  He will be dearly missed.

He is survived by his children, Tricia (Craig) Bartsh and Michelle (Matt) Frisch; grandsons, CJ (Jo) Stiever and Brock Frisch; nephew, Brian Lidtke (Ivy Rule) who lovingly referred to him as “Unc!”

He was preceded in death by his son, Jerry Lorenz in 2007; parents; and brothers, Gary Lidtke, Carl Lorenz, Leo Lorenz and Cleon Lorenz.

Per his wishes, private family services will be held.  He will be laid to rest at MN State Veterans Cemetery – Preston.  Chuck’s family will be at Buck’s Bar in Minneiska at 3 p.m., on Saturday, May 13, 2023 if anyone wishes to stop and pay their respects.  Hoff Funeral & Cremation Service – St. Charles is assisting the family with arrangements.
