Robert F. Trey Lehman III LUBBOCK-A loving father, devoted dad and granddad, Trey's love of his 51 years of life was infectious. Born in Houston on Aug. 8, 1962, to Dr. Robert F. Bob Lehman, Jr. and wife Glenda Kay, the family settled in Lubbock, where Trey graduated in 1980 from Monterey High School where he was active in band and choir. He hooked 'em to the University of Texas at Austin, graduating with a B.S. in Advertising. There, he met his brothers of Phi Kappa Psi. He served as president, member of the Interfraternity Council, pledge trainer, and two years as Round-Up Chairman. He was an active member of the Ad Club and the University Republicans. As a Phi Kappa Psi alum, he served over ten years as president on the house management board and received the 2011 Texas Alpha Alumni Service Award. Trey was also a member of the American Leadership Academy, mentoring and training future business leaders. Saying Trey was active as a Texas-Ex lifetime member is an understatement! His vehicles, including his custom Indian Longhog motorcycle and H2O Bevo yacht blazed as burnt orange as his Christmas lights. At sports events he could be spotted, at 6' 7, towering orange over a sea of OU red. Darryl Royal even invited him out to his home for dinner to snap a few photos of the famed coach on the back of the Longhog bike. But Trey's main love of life was his girls. He spent every moment possible with them, attending school functions and always planning fun-filled activities. He served as Indian Princess' Chief and was a youth leader at First Presbyterian of Grapevine. He was overwhelmed with joy over the birth of his granddaughter. In 2000, Trey founded assetdynamx healthcare, inc., of Irving, Texas. He was CEO and president, growing it into a company serving hospitals nationwide, until his death on May 3, 2014, in Dallas, Texas, following complications from heart surgery. He was preceded in death by father, Dr. Robert F. Lehman, Jr.; and survived by devoted mother, Kay; and stepfather, Grif Henson, Lubbock; daughter, Victoria Tori Salinas (26), (husband) Rob and (granddaughter) Charlotte Charlie (1), Flower Mound; daughter, Austyn (8), Colleyville; sisters, Kim Lehman-Brown, Lubbock, and Lesli Lehman, Plano; brother, Todd Lehman, New Home; nine nieces and nephews; loving aunts, uncles and cousins. Others left to carry on his memory are his brothers of Phi Kappa Psi and many close friends. Trey's celebration of life service will be Friday, May 30, at 2 p.m. at Second Baptist Church, Lubbock. The celebration will continue offsite at 4:30 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made, in memoriam, to the University of Texas Alumni Association at http://www.utexas.edu/alumni-friends/.
