Ames - Dean Louis Lehman died in Ames, Iowa, on January 7th, 2021. He was born on August 9, 1924, to Louis and Pauline Klingbeil Lehman.

Dean and Frieda farmed south of Huxley for more than 40 years. In 1993 they moved to Ames. Dean enjoyed coffee club, bowling, and playing cards. He was an avid supporter of all things ISU. It provided Dean great pleasure to deliver homegrown sweet corn to friends and family.

Sorry to read of Dean's passing. Great picture and indicative of the laugh so quickly and easily shared by Dean often during visits. He so loved sharing the sweet corn with many and was much appreciated. Thinking of all the family and wishing you peace.
