Klaus Lehmann, 71, unexpectedly departed this earth on Sunday, April 10, 2011. He was born in Pforzheim, Germany to Emil and Emma Lehmann. He was preceded in death by his twin brother Günter. He was the gracious, most precious husband of Rebecca Wilcox Lehmann with whom he would have celebrated 24 years of an exceptional marriage in May 2011. Klaus attended school in Germany and began his apprenticeship in the watch world at the age of 17. He worked for Swatch Group, U.S. for 30 years, retiring in 2004. He was an independent consultant with his former company at the time of his death. He resided in Germany, Switzerland, Ireland, St. Croix, V.I. before settling in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. He was an avid European soccer fan and a consummate traveler.
In addition to his adoring wife, he is survived by a brother-in-law, Samuel A. Wilcox, husband of Cynthia W. Wilcox, parents of his wife, Thomas and Frances Wilcox, and a myriad of nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews whom he loved. He is also survived by cousins in San Francisco and Germany. He faithfully attended Westminster Presbyterian Church, Lancaster. He will be missed by everyone who knew him; he was just simply a wonderful man who left us way too soon.
