Wow. I have been absent from here for some time due to health issues and just today heard of Tomís passing. I only had the opportunity of speaking with Tom here a couple of times but he was always ready to offer words of encouragement as well as help and I know how he has helped so many others. I know he will be greatly missed.
I started out with nothing. I have most of it left.

I just found out about this now since Iíve been absent for some tine. I was very sad to read about Tomís passing. He first and foremost seemed like a kind person with a friendly disposition towards anyone. Always helpful and incredibly knowledgable. We are lucky to have had him in the industry and especially on this forum, being one of the top contributors over the decade he spent here. From the deep technical discussions to helping someone with their problems. Iíll spend some time watching his videos that are out there. Thanks Peter for sharing some of them.

I quickly found out he was one of great knowledge when I found this place and I was very grateful when he gave me some help on my NY style endeavours. Iíll re-visit my NY style and make some pizza in his memory.

His legacy will live on in this forum as well as PMQ and other resources for many years yet. My thoughts go out to his friends and family. He will be missed very much.

All these months later and I'm still wishing he was around :(

I don't remember specifics but one of my early posts was about the Doughmate boxes I bought to ferment my dough in.  I had this idea these were what the pros used and I was excited when I got them. Then Tom just happened to reply and said they're nice but he prefers sandwich baggies from Walrmart.  Imagine my surprise learning the Dough Doctor himself uses the cheapest of the cheap plastic bags to store his dough balls lol.

I learned from what he said you don't need to go crazy and spend a lot of $$$ on luxury items.   That one post from him got me to do a lot of research and ultimately saved me from spending a ton of money on things I really didn't need.   I know God's enjoying some world-class pizza.

Once again, R.I.P. Tom.

Oh, I agree. There have been multiple times that I've thought, MAN, I need to ask Tom that question, he would know. And then realize it's not gonna happen. I sure do miss that guy.

OMG, am I obtuse, oblivious, or what, how did I miss this?  I am guessing I am like many, when I needed an answer on a dough issue, I looked through search on Tom Lehmann posts.  That is how I am here now.

To Toms family, our condolences only convey what you already knew, Tom was a special guy, and your loss is great.  We are all saddened by the loss, and while the sting of that loss will not leave his family, the memory of him hopefully is sweet.


I have been involved with several forums over the years, from owner to casual follower with a random post, people like Tom who share their experience, knowledge, tips, these wonderful people keep many like us coming back, the forum becomes a valuable resource.
To those on this truly amazing forum still active and giving your knowledge and insights, a heart-felt thank you.  We need you too.

To Tom's family, friends, those he influenced the most please accept my condolences, may Tom R.I.P.

Long time lurker here - very sad to see such an integral part of this global community pass, especially given the cause.

Hard to believe it has been a year. PMQ re-posted this profile of Tom.
