Leo J. Lehman Sr. Teacher, administrator

December 29, 1990

A Mass of Christian burial for Leo Joseph Lehman Sr., a former teacher and assistant principal in Baltimore County, will be offered at 10 a.m. today at St. Isaac Jogues Roman Catholic Church, 9215 Old Harford Road.

Mr. Lehman, who was 72, died of a heart attack Wednesday at St. Joseph Hospital.

A native of Ashley, Pa., he graduated from Bloomsburg State University in Bloomsburg, Pa., in 1941 and later earned his master's degree in education from the University of Maryland at College Park. Although he never received his doctorate, he earned 30 hours beyond his master's at the Johns Hopkins University.

Mr. Lehman's teaching career began in 1946 in the Baltimore County school system, where he taught English and math at Kenwood High School. Eventually he became the English department chairman, and his duties included overseeing the school yearbook.

In 1962 he became the assistant principal at Parkville Senior High School, where he remained until his retirement in 1977.

Mr. Lehman, a longtime Parkville resident, was a member of the Parkville American Legion Post No. 183.

Survivors include his wife of almost 52 years, the former Mary Grace Bedner; three sons, Skip Lehman of Columbia, David Andrew Lehman of Towson and Richard James Lehman of Parkville; eight grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.
