Edward H. Lenca


Denver, Colorado – Edward H. Lenca, 69, of Denver passed away January 28, 2023, at North Star Rehabilitation and Care Community, Lakewood, Colorado following a lengthy illness.


Ed Lenca was born on July 15, 1953, in Escanaba, MI, the son of Edward J, and Barbara A. (Labelle) Lenca. He was raised in Wilson, MI, and graduated from North-Central Area School, Powers, MI in 1971. After graduation he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps, serving 6 years and being honorably discharged in 1977 as Sergeant (E-5).


Ed worked as a cement mason for most of his working years in Denver and also was a certified welder. As a mason he was proud to work on the new Denver airport at the time it was constructed.


Ed was passionate about Harley motorcycles, driving his corvette, and his extensive gun collection. Ed had a zest for life and always wanted to live in the moment. We will miss Ed's great sense of humor & wit. He loved hunting in the mountains of Colorado and never missed his annual trip home to fish with his father and brother Stephen in Little Bay De Noc.


Ed is survived by siblings Stephen (Elizabeth) Lenca, Wells, MI, Carol (Tom) Witt, Granger, IA, Michael Lenca, Glenn Heights, TX, nieces Lauren Lenca, Grand Rapids, MI, Amanda Witt, Oshkosh, WI, nephews Samuel Lenca, Brookfield, WI, Brandon Witt, Granger, IA. Ed was preceded in death by his parents Edward & Barbara Lenca. A special mention to Keith Hurtubise for helping him as Ed's health declined over the last few years.
