Share your Memorial with Family & Friends
William E. Lehman, 87, of Roaring Brook Twp., died Wednesday morning at Geisinger Community Medical Center. He was preceded in death by his wife of 54 years, Esther Thornton Lehman.
Born in Scranton on May 8, 1928, son of the late William and Margaret Robson Lehman, Bill was raised and educated in Duryea. He served his country during the Korean Conflict, serving as a sergeant for the Army. Before retirement, he worked as a supervisor in the computer department at Tobyhanna Army Depot. He was of the Methodist faith and was a longtime member of Elm Park United Methodist Church in Scranton.
Bill was a hardworking, quiet, kind and modest man who led by example. Although he developed many medical challenges later in life, his determination to fight every day enabled him to live a long and full life. He will be missed by his loving family.
He is survived by his son, Thomas Lehman; daughter, Bonnie Bush and husband, Harry, and their children, Kasey, Shawn and Mara; and his son, William P. Lehman and wife, Elizabeth, and their child, Blair.
He was also preceded in death by two sisters, Lois Walter and Romayne Lehman.
His family would like to thank all of those who assisted in his care, especially Drs. Richard Martin and Henry Yeager. They’d also like to thank everyone at Geisinger Lake Scranton/Mt. Pleasant as well as those at DaVita Dialysis, who cared for him three times weekly for many years.
Funeral services, conducted by the Rev. Howard Woodruff, pastor of Elm Park United Methodist Church, will be private. Interment will follow at St. Joseph’s Cemetery, Scranton.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Bill’s name to the National Kidney Foundation, 30 E. 33rd St., New York, NY 10016.
Arrangements are under the care of the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home Inc., 517 N. Main St., Old Forge.
