Craig Joseph Lehmann, 58, passed away peacefully in his home surrounded by his family Dec. 31, 2021. Craig is survived by his loving wife of 34 years, Jane, and two dear sons, Michael and Nicholas. He was the youngest son of Barbara and Regis Lehmann. Craig grew up in Tarentum, alongside his cherished siblings, Jeffery Lehmann, Judy Lehmann-DeMao and Frederick Lehmann. He was honored to be the uncle of nieces, Jamie Cintron and Kelli Morris, and nephews, Charlie and Max Lehmann, and brother-in-law to Lisa Lucas and Tina Jackson. Craig graduated in 1981 from St. Joseph High School in Natrona Heights. He then attended Robert Morris University, receiving a bachelor's degree in business administration in 1986. Craig kept many lasting friendships from his school days. He and Jane met while at RMU and married in 1987 before moving to Gibsonia. His sons, Mike and Nick, were born in 1991 and 1994, respectively. Craig and Jane were also parents to five dogs, one cat and a hamster together. Craig was the fourth generation to work in the family-owned business. He enjoyed working with his father for more than 20 years in Tarentum as an insurance and real estate agent. Craig treated his clients with kindness and care, and it is no surprise that many of them became good friends. Craig was one of those special people that is beloved by so many. Concealed in his reserved demeanor laid a sharp sense of humor and quiet wisdom. He was compassionate, observant and had excellent manners and social etiquette. Craig showed his unique capacity to care for others by making all that knew him feel important and heard. He was a rock and provider for his family and part of countless happy memories and stories with his friends. Craig was an avid sports fan, active fitness and outdoor enthusiast and appreciator of music and films all his life. The world is a better place because Craig was a part of it, and he will be sorely missed. Craig's memorial service will be held Saturday, Jan. 22, 2022, at SCHELLHAAS FUNERAL HOME, 5864 Heckert Road, Bakerstown, PA 15007.
