Ed Lehman — the journalist, lawyer, former legislator and civic leader who owned the Times-Call for 54 years — died Saturday morning in Longmont, surrounded by family members. He was 93.

Lehman is survived by his wife, Connie; son, Dean Lehman, and his wife, Anne; grandchildren Jennifer Lehman and Gregory Lehman; and daughter, Lauren Lehman, and her husband, John Kivimaki.

Funeral arrangements are pending with Ahlberg Funeral Chapel.

Lehman and his late wife, Ruth, bought the Times-Call in 1957.

He had been a reporter for the Rocky Mountain News and Denver Post, as well as a former practicing attorney and deputy district attorney in Denver. Ruth was a practicing attorney before entering the newspaper business.

Lehman oversaw the expansion of his company, Lehman Communications, at Fourth Avenue and Terry Street, eventually doubling its size in the 1980s to about 45,000 square feet.
