Robert (Bob) Thomas Lehman, age 72, passed away at home, in Burns, Oregon on January 21st 2024 after a brave 5 year battle with cancer. Bob was born in St. Paul, Minnesota on June 29th 1951 to George and Wilma Lehman and was the youngest of 4 siblings. In 1991 Bob’s career as a lineman brought him to Burns, Oregon where he met his beloved wife, Mary Lehman, and they wed on October 5th 1995.
From a young age, Bob was always artistic. He enjoyed spending time with his father in the wood shop, learning how to carve, paint and draw. He went on to create beautiful landscapes and water features, remodeled homes, illustrated books, built beautiful furniture, and became a professional painter.
Bob also enjoyed spending time with his family up in the woods. If he could hike it, hunt it or catch it, he was doing it! He spent years hunting and fishing all over the country and his “critter” room is proof of all his successful hunts.
Bob was also a very kind and generous man and was always willing to lend a helping hand. If you had the pleasure of knowing Bob, there’s a very high likelihood that he helped you with one of your projects or solved one of your problems. He prided himself on being an honest and hardworking man, and poured himself into everything and everyone he loved around him.
Bob is survived by his wife, Mary Lehman, his 3 children, his 4 grand grandchildren and his 3 siblings: Codi Couchman and her daughter Finnley, Mandi Dowell and her son Ross, Mick Miller and his wife Kelsie and their children Skye and Coltin, his brother Jim Lehman and his wife Lynn, his sister Carol Yobbie and his other sister Judy Olson and her husband Rick.
He is proceeded in death by his parents George and Wilma Lehman, his father-in-law Roy Travis, his brother-in-law Richard Yobbie, his son-in-law Christopher Couchman and his nephew Rick Olson.
Bob will be greatly missed by everyone that knew and loved him.
A private memorial service will be held this spring where he will be laid to rest at his favorite turkey hunting meadow.
