Butch....Some of my favorite memories are golfing and Bowling with Lee. I don’t think I ever remember a time when he wasn’t talking to some random stranger....on any our our bowling trips. You and Lee made those trips memorable and fun for all the right reasons. Lee had a real genuine and positive impact on my life....I was happy our paths crossed and we became friends. He will always be in my life because of all the great memories and fun we had. I think I met Lee when I was 21 years old....and a cocky young kid that got his butt kicked in bowling by Lee....a lot when we first met....I used to think me and that “old man” are going to fight....:-) Then we became friends and realized what kind and generous man he really was.... I will miss him...Sincerely Geoff
