The memory that stands out most is the summer he stepped in to play a part in our play. The person who was cast in that role couldn't perform. We also had to move the performance indoors as it was raining, so we were in the Lehman's basement. If I remember correctly, this play, written by several of us kids, included pirates.
I also remember him sitting outside soaking up the sun while reading a book.
Also, it was a great day when Dennis & Marilyn became US citizens. I took pictures of them, developed them myself, & gave them to them. What a privilege to be witness to that historic time in their lives.
Rest in peace Dennis! God bless you!

Little known fact but when I was 16 Mr. Lehman was teaching me to box in their backyard. I think I learned well especially after he provided a well connected jab to my jaw with a nice hook. He also was responsible for getting me my first part time job in downtown Minneapolis working at the printing office on weekends. He was great to have as a neighbor and we connected well on many fronts. I always had and still to this day have utmost respect for him and will always refer to him as “Mr. Lehman”!
You will be missed but not forgotten
