John S. Lenhart

April 12, 1962 — July 27, 2015

JOHN S. LENHART, 53 of Roscoe, NE, passed away Monday, July 27, 2015 South of Roscoe, NE.

John was born April 12, 1962 at Grant, NE to Loland "Dick" and Julana (Brown) Lenhart. He graduated from Grant High School.

On January 24, 1989, he married Lydia Loop in Las Vegas, NV. The couple made their home in Roscoe their entire married lives. Their union was blessed with 3 daughters, Cassie, Jessica and Alicia. John worked as a mechanic and alignment specialist in Ogallala before getting a job at Sargent Irrigation in Grant.

John took great pride in his work, especially throughout his many years in the automotive industry. People would bring their cars in from miles around to have John take care of the alignment, or troubleshoot the problem with their vehicle

John had many passions in life, but perhaps chief among them may have been his Harley Davidson motorcycle. He loved to ride whenever he got a chance, and treated his motorcycle with the utmost care. John also loved working on old Ford pickups. He had restored a couple for himself, but found himself helping other people on their restoration projects over the years too. He also enjoyed watching stock car races, tractor pulls, and his collection of Snap-On tools.

John was preceded in death by his parents; 2 brothers, Richard and Dennis; and sister, Donna Frame.

Survivors include his wife, Lydia Lenhart of Roscoe; daughters, Cassie Hayes of Ft. Collins, CO, Jessica Lenhart and Alicia Lenhart both of Roscoe; 4 grandsons, Wyatt, Brendyn, Jackson and Samuel; brother, Alan (Carol) Lenhart of St. Croix Falls, WI; sister, Theresa Lenhart of Moore, OK; 4 nieces; 5 nephews; and many other relatives and friends.
