Leondre Alan Adams, “Misko-giizhi-gweb” (Red Sunset), began his journey to the
spirit world on January 1, 2014 at the age of 22. He began his life in Bemidji,
Minnesota on August 17, 1991. He is survived by his mother Sharon Adams (Pat
Londo), father Leo Osmundson, older sisters Vanessa “Sis” Adams and Teresa
“Sister” Adams, three very special nieces TaMia, Teryn, and Sadie, grandmother
Ellen Adams, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and his close friends JBow, Eric I.,
Luiz D., Jonah H., Frank W., Xavier W., Codie B., Conrad S., Jordan T., Will R.,
and Shane W.; apologies to those we have missed.
Leondre grew up in the Cass Lake and Bemidji areas for most of his life. He attended Cass Lake-Bena
elementary and middle schools. He later moved to Tower with his Aunts, Tammy and Natalie Goodsky,
for a time and attended Tower High School. He returned to Bemidji where he joined the Youthbuild
program in 2010 and completed his education at Voyeguer Expeditionary High School, earning his
diploma in 2011. His steady determination was a positive force in this accomplisment.
Leondre was a laidback, friendly, and adventurous person that had a great sense of humor that he loved
to share, especially on his Facebook page at all hours of the night and morning. He loved listening to
“his type of music”. He enjoyed hanging out with his friends and cousins that he was very close to
and could make friends easily wherever he went. Leondre enjoyed going to powwows to be with his
friends and relatvies. He especially loved watching his nieces dance, hearing his cousins sing, and
eating powwow food. His favorite meal was Nett Lake Wild Rice and Deer Meat. Whenever he had
the chance to travel he would be the first person in the car saying, “Let’s go!” He was the only male in
the household and he appreciated the opportunity he had in helping raise his three nieces. His family will forever miss deeply.
