Obituary of Larry Wayne Lehman
Larry Wayne Lehman passed away on March 9, 2020, 2 days before his 76th birthday. Prior to his death, he expressed he felt better than he had in years. Larry had been dealing with a number of issues over the last year, including congestive heart failure. He was preceded in death by his father, Ralph E. Lehman, his mother Lillian Griffis Lehman and his dear brother Gary. He is survived by his two sisters Patricia and Barbara, his two sons and his daughters-in-law, Jason and Kim and Clay and Kelly, his nephew Stacy, who he loved like a son, and his grandkids Elizabeth, Catherine, Sydney, Spencer, Julia, Davis, Harrison, and Olivia.
Larry was born in Orlando, Florida. Soon after his birth, his family moved to Pleasant Grove, Alabama where they stayed through his freshman year of high school. His family moved back to Orlando and Larry attended Evans High School. Following his graduation, Larry attended Florida State University. He earned a bachelor’s degree in Accounting and obtained his CPA license. For many years, Larry practiced accounting at Lehman, Moore, and Associates. Following his career with Lehman and Moore, he served as the administrator of Tallahassee Orthopedic Clinic. In 2001, he moved to Gainesville, Georgia to run Specialty Clinics of Georgia. In 2017, he retired to Florida to be closer to his family.
He loved to laugh with friends, watch Florida State sports, fish, cook and bake. His favorite thing to do was to bring a smile to your face with his famous peanut butter fudge or a delicious homemade quiche. His smile, laugh, wisdom and friendship will be missed by many.
