Christopher Glenn “Chris” Lenard was from Calhoun, Louisiana, and was much more than a firefighter and district chief. He served his community in many other ways as well. He taught classes at the fire department for upcoming firefighters, he was a paramedic, and he unselfishly put his own life on the line with no pay as a volunteer deputy for our sheriff’s department.
He attended church at The Pentecostals of the Twin Cities. Chris had many friends in his hometown, along with close friends in other states. He loved to travel, fish, and hunt, but most of all, he loved to spend his free time with his grandkids, Nathan Glenn and Claira Jade. Chris had one child, a daughter, who he personally named Alisa Nicole.
After his passing we learned so much more about his character. He gave to many charities and helped friends and strangers any way he could, all with a smile on his face that displayed his big, beautiful dimples.
He was an amazing daddy, pawpaw, son, brother, and hero that will be greatly missed. We know he is still always protecting us from heaven.
