Rev. Leonard F. Lett – Age 79, better known as “Frank” to all his family and friends went to his heavenly home on Saturday, May 4, 2013 at his home in Hurricane, WV, surrounded by his loving family. Dad was born and raised in Poca, WV on Heizer Creek, to the late Roy Lett and Vivian Higginbotham Lett. Our loving husband and father was a warrior for our Lord and Savior for 53 years of his life. He believed up to the end that God had healed his broken body. Praise God he has the perfect healing now in Heaven. Dad pastored at Ronda Assembly of God, Cross Lanes Assembly of God and Alum Creek Assembly of God. Dad was also a professional meat cutter for 56 years and had worked at several area markets where he would witness for the Lord every day. Besides his parents he was preceded in death by his daughter Regina Fern Lett at the age of 7 years and Brother Roger Lett.
Left to cherish his memory, loving wife Rosie M. Jarrell Lett, daughter Karin Creech, twin sons Peter and wife Debbie Lett, John and wife Debbie Lett. Grandchildren: Regina and Jeremy Creech, Carrie and Adam Lett, Amanda and husband Alan Lesher and Caitlyn Lett. Great Grandaughter: Karlee Rae Creech. Sister: Mary and husband Robert Cremeans, brothers Shirley and wife Bertie Lett, Gene and wife Mary Lett and several nieces and nephews.
Dad belonged to Order of Odd Fellows Boone Lodge #170, AF&AM Nitro Lodge #170, Scottish Rite 32, Order of the Eastern Star P.P. Nitro Chapter #153 and licensed minister with Assemblies of God ministries.
Dad will be greatly missed by all of his family and friends left behind. But we all have the reassurance that one day we will meet in Heaven if we are prepared to go and meet the Lord. If Dad were here he would want everyone to be ready to meet him in Heaven. But you must be born again.
A tribute to the life of Rev. Leonard F. Lett will be 1:00 PM Thursday at Gatens-Harding Funeral Home Chapel with Pastors Victor Keathley and Roy Jarrell officiating. Burial will follow in Syacamore Cemetery. The family will receive friends 6 to 8 PM Wednesday at Gatens-Harding Funeral Home.
