Mr. Jeffrey Allen Lietz, 59, of Advance, passed away Thursday, Feb. 10, 2022, at Witham Memorial Hospital in Lebanon, after fighting for the last two months of his life.
Jeff was born Dec. 30, 1962, in Edgerton, WI, a son of Wendell and Nancy (Nelson) Lietz. He married Melanie (Wartilko) on Mar. 4, 1989. She survives.
Jeff received his associate’s degree from Blackhawk Tech, and worked for United Airlines as a mechanic. His last job was with Beckman Coulter building centrifuges.
