Lehman Penn Ambrose, Jr., age 73, of Creswell, NC passed away at his home on Thursday afternoon November 2, 2023.
Lehman was born in Tyrrell County, NC on March 16, 1950. He grew up in Creswell, NC. A graduate of Creswell High School, he worked as a self-employed farmer all his life, growing crops like corn, wheat and soybeans.
Known as "Brother" to many, he loved the outdoors and was an avid bear hunter, often remarking of the time he "grinned down" a bear. He enjoyed running dogs and even when he was unable to get out of the truck, he would still ride in the woods and listen to the dogs, which was music to his ears. He was a member of the Newland Hunting Club and the Northern Dismal Hunting Club.
Lehman is survived by his loving and dedicated wife of 52 years, Mary Brickhouse Ambrose. Their two daughters, Melissa Rose and husband Johnny of Greenville, NC and Lynn Knapp and husband Billy of Jacksonville, NC.
