James C. “Jim” Lehner, of Saluda, was born July 7, 1944 to Arthur S. Lehner and Virginia M. Lehner in Richmond. Jim’s angel presented them self to gently deliver him to his Jesus Christ on February 17, 2019. Jim enlisted in the Marine Corps and served in and was wounded in Vietnam.

He met his future wife, Suzanne, in Oxon Hill, Maryland. They were married for fifty-three years and have two daughters, Kimberly Robinson (Charles) and Frances Lehner. Jim is also survived by a sister, Shirley Host (Ray) and brothers, Arthur J. Lehner and Thomas S. Lehner, he was also blessed with five grandchildren and three great grandchildren. He is also survived by his canine daughter, Lola, who lifted him through difficult times and was always by his side.

Jim retired from Clayton Modular Homes where he enjoyed a successful career. He was in the top tier sales four times which gifted him and his wife with rewards to Alaska, Puerto Rico, Las Vegas and Disneyland. Jim was a talented mechanic who enjoyed collecting and restoring vintage cars and boats. His favorite hobby was boating with their bicycles bungeed to the bow of “Susannah”, when Jim and Suzanne motored the Chesapeake Bay on numerous occasions traveling as far north as Baltimore Harbor and south to Virginia Beach including ports in between.

Jim had a lovely smile that revealed his mood without speaking a word. He will be sorely missed but the family will take comfort by knowing Jim lives in the house of the Lord. Special consideration to Riverside Walter Reed Hospice for their attention to Jim and his wife including J.C. and Brenda Nunnally who have a special connection to the Lord that comforted him.

A celebration of Jim’s life is planned for a later date. Arrangements by Faulkner Funeral Homes, Bristow-Faulkner Chapel, Saluda.

Oh daddy how I love you so. Please know if I could take your pain away I would. But I know you will be in the arm's of an angel. And they will take care of you. I miss you so much daddy.

I'm his oldest daughter Kimberly. I remember every weekend when I was just a little girl, we would always go to the boat. He loved the water fishing. But most of all he adored my mother Sue. Oh daddy how I love you so. I will always remember you.
