Funeral for Paul Leingang had the church filled

News

Earlier this week, we reported on the death of Deputy Chief Paul Leingang. He lost his battle battle against cancer at just 54 years old.

Christ the King Church was filled for his funeral. Ambulances, police vehicles, and fire trucks all came out in a stance of solidarity.

Bismarck Police Chief Dan Donlin, a longtime friend of Leingang’s, reflects on what he’ll miss the most.

Bismarck Police Chief Dan Donlin: “Man, I’m going to miss him. My strongest memory, there’s the funny ones with the ticket, but overall, it’s Paul’s handshake, his hug, his phone call ‘you want to go for coffee and talk.’ His smile is what I’ll never forget.”

The support police officers give one another in these times is immense.

The Bismarck PD and Burleigh County Sheriff’s Department filled in shifts for the Mandan PD so every officer could attend the services.
