Lehner Family- So sorry to hear of the loss of Herb. He was an amazing person who could light up any room. Always loved seeing him at the fair with my girls in the sheep barn where he would always choose and later bid on their sheep, and always made sure he got one of them.
He will be missed by many including myself and my daughters! RIP

Herbie was a good example of God's love on earth. I saw that love through his sister Bernie and her husband Jim many times. Herbie is now in Heaven with God and other family and friends. Herbie will be missed by his family and many friends but he will always be as close as their hearts when they wish to speak to him. May God's love and graces help Bernie's family through this time and shower them with sunshine and good health. Sincerely, Sandy and Dave Stowell

Our deepest sympathies to Marverne and all of Herb’s family. We had the pleasure of meeting Herb and Marverne at Nick and Reese’s wedding. Herb was a kind man who brought so much love and joy into the lives of those who knew him. May your grief and sorrow eventually be replaced by peace and comfort through Jesus. I like Herb’s words of wisdom… “We are spiritual beings having a human experience!” Herb’s spirit is very much alive in Heaven.

My wife, Catherine E. Lehner is one of Herbie's first cousins. I have known and admired Herbie for the sixty years I have known him. His passion for the rights of the unborn is one of notoriety and one that I share with him. While we are of different faiths, we worship the same Jesus and our sins have been covered by His blood. I will truly miss Herbie's friendship, his optimism and his love of God, family and country.

I had the pleasure of meeting Herbie, who became my daughter’s father-in-law when she married his son Daniel Lehner. I found him to be a very godly man a very passionate man about his family and his farm and a good friend to so many.. I love to hear him laugh and hear his stories about his life And his kids and how much he love them all. I know my grandchildren will miss him terribly as he was teaching them so much about farming and they enjoyed all the time that they spent with grandpa. Wyatt referred to him as a Superman because he had survived so many accidents on the farm. You will be deeply missed in this family Herbie. I hope that you have found peace and comfort in the Lord up above. We all love you.. Kay Budreau
