Funny Memories of him. He loved his coffee and ciggs. Lol I'm sorry that us kids have not kept in touch and that I didn't get to see him before he passed. I just found out today after the fact that he was gone. I sure wish I'd known sooner. Fly high "dad Lehman", stay out of trouble up there lol and look over all of us...Love You 💙

Growing up , it was always the Lehman brothers and the Ryan brothers. We went everywhere together, especially at Milers ice creme shop. I remember going to the Lehmans house house on Gay Street. We had to wait for an half hour while Rot and Dee would brush their teeth. Had to be perfect. Rot was a great person and a fighter to the end. I will miss Roy and will never forget him. Rest In Peace my friend
