Obituary for Steven Joseph Lehman

Steven  Joseph  Lehman
Steven J Lehman, age 69, died Monday, November 26th at 11:45pm in his home in Coupeville, Washington. with the love of his life, by his side. He fought a valiant battle with prostate cancer only ultimately succumbing on his terms.

Steve is survived by his cherished best friend and life partner Kristi Ingram. He is also survived by his three children Cullen Lehman, Tagen Lehman, and Dustin Lehman. Steve leaves behind four grandchildren Lake Lehman, Skye Lehman, Ellie May Lehman, and Cannan Lehman.

A Washington native, Steve held many different jobs throughout this great State. However, his favorite was serving as a handyman for the community right here on Whidbey Island.

Steve’s favorite season was winter, in part because that’s when Christmas is. He loved Christmas, you could hear him humming Christmas carols any day of the year. Steve carried Christmas in his heart and didn’t feel it should be reserved for just one day on a calendar.

Steve’s sense of humor was sometimes irreverent and often lacked what might be considered an appropriate filter. That somehow served to make both him and his awesome sense of humor more approachable for others. He was just as comfortable being the life of the party, a confidant, and trusted friend. He was all of those things and even more to those who were lucky enough to know him.

Steve was a quintessential Boy Scout, literally still carrying his Boy Scout of America card in his wallet. He took the motto to be prepared seriously and seemed to be prepared for whatever situation might arise.

Per Steve’s wishes, there will be no memorial service. When planning for his final arrangements, he said “I will be dead so what’s the point of a service if I can’t be there to enjoy it” That is "so" Steve.
His friends who knew, loved and respected his kind, gentle, humorous soul are invited to celebrate him with a song this Christmas season.

Arrangements have been made with the assistance of Whidbey Memorial Funeral Home.
