Everett Eugene Lehman
Sep 11, 1933 - Jul 15, 2017
Everett Eugene Lehman, 83, loving husband, father, and grandfather, passed away on July 15th at Wake Forest Baptist Hospital after a short illness. Everett was born in Winston-Salem in 1933 to Paul H. Lehman and Thelma Elizabeth Lehman. He attended public schools in Winston-Salem, graduating from R.J. Reynolds High School in 1951. He attended UNC Chapel Hill until entering military service in 1953. After completing basic training and leadership school, he served as a Staff Sergeant in the US Army Medical Corp in Heilbronn, Germany. He took a 30 day leave to marry his fiancé, Jo Ann Fox, who later joined him in Germany. While there, they also enjoyed trips to Austria, Switzerland, France and Italy.
After his discharge from the Army in 1956, he worked as a Technical Illustrator for several companies in the aerospace industry, namely Western Electric, Raytheon Corp., Brown Engineering Co. and Northrop Aviation Carolina Division. He also worked for two years at RJR Archer Aluminum, in the customer service department. The government contract work required too many moves and different schools for his growing family, so he changed careers in 1972 and went to work at Meridian Publishing, where he stayed for 22 years.
He was preceded in death by his parents, his brother, Paul H. Lehman Jr., sister, Mary Margaret Lehman Howell, and his wife, Jo Ann Fox Lehman, who died in September 2013, after 59 years of marriage.
Surviving are his three children, Steve Lehman of Winston-Salem, Lisa Lehman Carlin (Doug) of Morrisville, NC, and Kelly Lehman Hoover of Greensboro, NC. There are four grandchildren, Nicholas Carlin of Wilmington, NC., Alexander Carlin of Morrisville, NC., Emily (Katie) Lehman of Greensboro, NC., Paul Lehman (Caitlyn) of Asheville, NC., his first great grandchild Rose Lehman, due in September, and many nieces and nephews.
On July 20th, visitation will be held at 10:00 in Smith Hall at College Park Baptist Church, on Polo Road in Winston-Salem. Funeral will be at 11:00, led by Rev. Ramon Smith. Burial will follow at Forsyth Memorial Park.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to College Park Baptist Church. Condolences can be sent online at www.salemfh.com.

Kelly, I'm so sorry for your loss. You, your sister and brother will be in my prayers. Your comfort can be knowing that your dad is with your mom and no longer suffering.

Kelly, I know how very special your dad was to you and what a good daughter you were to him. My heart felt prayers are with your entire family at this time. Rejoice that your dad has a healthy body now. He is happy and whole and we know you will see him again. You all went above and beyond as his kids. Never doubt that. And know that he knew you did. Much love, Janice

Your father and mother visited my mother-in-law, Dolores Browne, every week at Salemtowne Health Care, when they visited your Aunt Betty. They were friends from College Park Baptist. They were so gracious, fun, and young-at-heart! Dolores cherished these visits, and I was very grateful to know them, too. Your father was so faithful in his care for Jo Ann, so loving. We loved seeing the attractive outfits they wore, but more importantly, their good humor and kindness. I was out of town the week of your father's funeral and I regret not being there to give thanks for his life. God bless you as you grieve. You can certainly be proud of the man he was, and the woman your mother was. I saw firsthand the fruits of their informal ministry and their gifts of the Spirit.
