Mr. Lehto, you were an amazing man, coach and math teacher! You were always seen wearing a smile :) You are going to be greatly missed. I am glad that I was able to make it to your service and learn more about your background and accomplishments in life. Even learned about the camping trip you went on with my dad, (Bob Brown) and Dave Neiling out west, where you had to rate every single Chef's salad you ordered. May you rest in peace and GO PACK GO!!

Mr. Lehto When I met you as a young boy I call you George. As I grew older and you became my teacher and coach, I called you Mr Lehto or coach. When I became a man and I became a coach myself with you and my dad I called you coach or George. At that point you became a friend and we had some good time. Later on we didn't see much of each other but dad always let me know how you were doing or something crazy you did golf together. Well now all I can say now is : George, Mr Lehto, Coach, George and Friend you will be missed and RIP

George will always be missed at Barnes & Noble in Appleton. He spent many hours in our store and was a favorite among the employees, managers, and other customers. His book choices were always shared and always great. He left a big impression on all of us! Thank you, George! As he is missed we also send thoughts and prayers to his family.

Sorry to hear that the great "Smilin George" passed on. He had a great sense of humor and you could always count on him to entertain, When The group he was associated with at Stevens Point get together there is always a story that comes up about George and his extra curricular activities. Even in the last few years when his health was failing he always was upbeat and happy. He will be missed.

Always sad to lose a valued member of the educational fraternity. I remember the way he was always ready to help when I substituted in Gillette . And I still remember thel how he helped me score some great tickets for a packer game or two. That memory is still alive after almost twenty years.
