August 27, 1935 - April 20, 2021
Leland J. Pielstick was born in 1935 in Minden, Nebraska to Malcom and Ethyl Pielstick. Lee was raised in Nebraska, Idaho and Canada. At the age of 18, he met the love of his life, Bonnie Furniss, and they were married 6 weeks later in 1953. They eventually moved to Kennewick when Lee went to work at Copeland Lumber in 1961 and they loved the area and its people. Lee was very active in the community through Kiwanis, Kennewick Lions and Kennewick Chamber of Commerce. He owned King's Way Carpets, H and D Sales and a car wash before he decided to sell real estate in the 1970's. He continued to sell real estate until he was 75 and loved helping people with their homes. After he retired from real estate, he was on the Board of Equalization until about 2018. Lee also loved motorcycles and cars! He took his kids to car races, worked on cars, driving cars and watching the Indy 500. He had a bigger than life personality but he wanted people to see Jesus in his personality and actions. Lee trusted Jesus most of his life and felt blessed because of it. He showed his family how to love and follow Jesus and be blessed because of it. His surviving family are his 2 sons, Bruce (Wendy), and Lloyd (Laura), and daughter, Denise Haug (Mel); his grandchildren and many cherished great-grandchildren whom he loved and adored all. There were many people that he and Bonnie welcomed into their home and became their family. There are many surviving in-laws, nieces and nephews that loved Lee and his excitement for life. There will be a memorial service on Saturday, May 1, 2021 at 4pm at The Living Room Community Church. There will be an open mike time to share "Lee stories" at the end of the service. Please come and share. Graveside will be in Jerome, ID.
