Jerald F. Lehman

Jerald F. Lehman, age 80, of the Town of Wheatfield, passed away peacefully on Thursday, February 13, 2020. He was born June 19, 1939 in Niagara Falls, to Frank and Mildred Lehman. He was a 1957 graduate of North Tonawanda High School. He was very active in organizing events not only for the Class of ‘57 but also various other classes. His stamp on his high school and the friends he made throughout the years will leave an everlasting impression on all of us. He married Barbara Bach on August 5, 1961. Jerry served honorably in the United States Army from 1960-1966. He worked for the Operating Engineers, Carborundum and the New York State Power Authority where he happily retired in 2005. Jerry truly lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures such as watching football games with his sons and calling them when he wasn’t able to be there in person. He also loved boating. Spending time with his grandchildren was his greatest pleasure. He enjoyed 58 years of marriage with his wonderful wife “Barbara Jean his teenage queen.” Jerry had an amazing talent of making anyone that stepped into his front door feel like family. His constant charisma and devotion to his family and friends made him the admirable man that everyone knew him to be and love. Jerry and Barb enjoyed 15 years of spending winters in their home in Clermont Florida with their many friends and family. He is survived by his wife, Barbara; three sons, Jeffrey (Marilyn), Michael (Susan), and Scott (Nicole Tomsen). Grandfather of Jordan, Taylor, James, Matthew, John, Eric, Renee, Griffin, Madison, Kyle, and Hayley. Brother of Roger Lehman and Shirley Vill. Also survived by nieces, nephews and cousins.
