Over the many years we worked together at the Parole Commission, Lee was one of the hardest working, most intelligent, and most entertaining hearing examiners on the agency's staff. Our general counsel's office did not escape his wicked sense of humor. But his barbs were good-natured. When his sarcasm was meant to sting, it was well-deserved. Most importantly, he cared deeply about doing the work right, and he made a lot of long-lasting friendships. That goes a long way to a life well-lived.

Smart, a very hard worker and a loyal friend. I spoke with him last week. I am so glad we had that time together. Lee loved his hobbies, his cigars and the dogs in his life. There is a hole in my heart this evening.

On behalf of all those still working at the U.S. Parole Commission, please accept our deepest condolences on Lee's passing. Lee was one of the finest Hearing Examiners the agency has ever had and left behind quite a legacy upon his retirement. Since that time, Lee and I continued our friendship meeting once or twice a year when the pen shows came to Tysons Corner or Baltimore. He never spared me or anyone else he worked with his blunt analysis (e.g. "check your shoes, there's a dummy in them"). However, his heart was larger than anyone's and his loss leaves a void in ours. We are all thinking of Lee and those who loved him most at this time. Steve Husk

Representing the Southeast Pen Collectors Club, I can say that Lee was a long time member, collector, and purveyor of quality pens. His involvement within the pen community will be missed.
