  • I knew Winnie better but Al’s gentle spirit showed through in every interaction I ever had with him. After Winnie had passed, he stopped by our house one spring day because he noticed we had not put out a garden and wanted to make sure we were okay.

    May God’s comfort and peace enfold you all as you miss him. May joy spring up in you as you know he is seeing Jesus face to face and you will see him again.

  • Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. Al was such a gentle giant. We thought a lot of him.

    God Bless!

  • Sending my sympathy .I new Al my whole life as his Dad, Howard built our house in 1948 and his Mother, Ann was my Bible School teacher, They were also neighbors when they lived where Snow Trails is now and we rode the same school bus…through the Lehnharts we were distant cousins and he always greeted me with “Hi Cuz” and a hug at the Berean Senior dinners. A very special man. Peace and blessings to all of you.

  • Al was one of my favorite bosses at Thermodisc. He had a heart of gold and true compassion. My husband and I both worked at Thermodisc and live at Tower Lakes where he previously resided with Winnie. It was very obvious he loved her dearly. Happy that they are together again….

  • We love Mr. and Mrs. Lehnhart— two beautiful souls together again. You were blessed with a set of wonderful parents! May you find comfort and joy in your memories that you share. When I told Jaime Mrs. Lehnhart’s husband went to heaven she said it all—“ he was as sweet as her.” Prayers for you all- be blessed that Al was someone so loved.

  • Our sympathy to Al’s family. We both worked at Therm-O-Disc and knew Al as a gentle, excellent co-worker. Our circle of TOD friends has now lost two in a week and Al will be dearly missed. We are happy to know he is with Winnie and at peace. Adeline & Peter Banks

  • Cheryl, I am so sorry for the loss of your sweet dad. I remember his supportive presence at so many of the kindergarten events that your mom coordinated. You were so blessed to have such parents who were so dedicated to God, one another, their family, and mission. So many lives touched. ❤

    Al was my very close “brother”. We spent weeks together bow hunting in Pa. and hours and hours as he worked to make the art work at MCS the best. Al, I will see you soon and we will continue our work and fun with Winnie and our families. I have often said, if anyone has an issue with Al Lehnhart and any other person, it will not be Al’s fault. Until we meet again . . . Philippians 1:3

  • We are so saddened for your loss, but are convinced that the glory your dad is experiencing now is far better than any treasure this earth can hold. Mark always enjoyed the Dean Scott Breakfast Bible Study club, where he met such great men of faith, your dad being one of them. Dads like yours can never be replaced, just hold tight to the good memories.

  • Matt and Cheryl, You certainly have my deepest sympathy. I knew your parents for many years. They were great people. Your Dad was one of the kindest men I had the honor to know. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. You were so blessed.

  • What a sweet man! Al and Don often talked. He will be missed.
    Prayers for all.
    Don and Cindy McCorkle
