I'm just learning this news now and I'm devastated. I just joined the forum a couple months ago and right out of the gate Tom took the time to help me with my Neapolitan dough challenges. I'm extremely grateful for his generosity and I'm deeply saddened by this lost. Much love to all of Tom's family & friends.

Like everyone else, I am completely devastated.

I am from Spain and I only have words of gratitude to one of the best mentors.

I have been reading Tom Lehmann here for many years. I feel a great sorrow.

Rest in peace, The Dough Doctor.

Son of a... That is so sad.  He was instrumental in me perfecting the chicago style thin crust pizza dough.  What a sadness.  Freaking covid. 
My friends say I am the best pizza maker there is.  But I know better.

I am just learning the news, I am devastated to hear. It’s a huge loss to all us lovers of the pie. He was a treasure.
Pursuing pizza has put me into an airplane, in a car and on road trips of hundreds of miles...

Thank you for sharing this sad news. Thanks to Tom and his passionate work for bakers and pizza hobbyist and professionals alike.  I think there is a need for a tribute to Mr. Lehmann, he leaves a legacy without a doubt. A pizza, accurate dough percentages, sauce, and toppings. It would also be nice to have stories shared by those that were lucky to have interacted with him. I have not read this thread so please excuse me if these topics have/or are being discussed. My condolences to the Lemann family.

Very sad. Rest in peace Tom. As others have pointed out Tom was always extremely generous in taking time to help out anyone, including a nobody like me when I first wanted to try making pizzas at home. He will be missed.

After the passage of a fair amount of time after Tom passed away, I decided to check the Pizza Today website to see if that company had a column or article or even an announcement letting their readers know that Tom, who had created countless articles for Pizza Today, was no longer with us. By contrast, the folks at PMQ had informed its readers of Tom's passing very promptly.  To check on Pizza Today, I did a search at their website to see if I might have missed an article or announcement of Tom's passing. In order to do the search, I had to register. I got nothing from my search. After more time passed, during which I did more searches at the Pizza Today website, and coming up empty, I decided to simply send an email to Pizza Today, using the link at the Pizza Today website. I let Pizza Today know of Tom's passing, given the fact that he had played an important role at Pizza Today through his many contributions to Pizza Today for many years. My email included an obit link. I waited to see if I would get a reply of any sort. I got nothing. But I still did searches from time to time and came up empty.

Finally, today, after doing another search, I got a link to what appeared to be the missing article that I had expected for the many weeks following Tom's passing. Here is the link:

Sorry to hear of this. I'm just a pizza hobbyist, but Tom helped me out personally with a couple of recipes over the years, and my family gatherings must of ate thousands of pizzas thanks to him. RIP and Thank You.
