I met Godfrey years ago when I was a single parent and struggling. I will never forget his all out energy and courage to be his own person. Plus he looked like Albert Einstein. Sorry for your loss Madeline and Melinda.

I feel very lucky to have been a neighbor and Godfreys barber the last five years. He always had a quick funny wit. He had composure and dignity till the end. And that was due to all the love and care his whole family gave him. I will miss seeing him.

I enjoyed Godfrey's personality a lot. He was so comfortable in his own skin that he might just blurt out anything that came to mind, whether he knew you well or not. I also enjoyed watching him work the room at parties, consistently attracting attention from women half his age with his spry energy. He also had a quick wit and dry sense of humor. Godfrey was a character and I'm glad I had the opportunity to get to know him.

I remember Godfrey Lehman as a very nice gentleman and a person always curious about the world around him. I remember him as a doting father and grandfather which was very obvious everytime I would see him. He will be sorely missed...
