My Dad was the greatest man, he always took care of us and others. Since I was little he always called me his Weeda Woos and we would sing together while he played his guitar, usually There’s a lonely little robin, and Delta Dawn, I always loved to hear him play and singing those songs with him. He never met a stranger, everywhere we went he knew someone or stopped to talk to someone. He was a good husband to my Mom , the best father and grandfather ever, I will miss you so much Dad, love always and forever , your Weeda Woos

My Dad would have loved the grand service he received at the funeral. Although he was done with the military years ago he respected all veterans. Dad and his best friend "Skip" Henry Antey, joined up with the US Navy in 1961. Little did they know that they would be headed to Cuba to fight the communist. They both had to do their basic training on board the USS Saratoga on the way. Skip was a boxer and Dad would spar with him for training. During their trip to Cuba from the Great Lakes and down the mighty Mississippi river they got the news. President John F Kennedy announced that they were turning back and the conflict was handled. Dad told me that they were both relieved that it was over, neither one of them wanted to kill anyone.

Lee was a very special man and a great family man. Even though we weren't family by blood, he and Nancy always treated me and my family as if were were part of their family. I know he will be missed by many.

I worked with Lee most of my 38 years at the EVSC. He was always an awesome man to work with and to be around. Always friendly, always in a good mood, always funny, always full of interesting stories, always ready to lend a hand or give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. I love this man and look forward to seeing him again in heaven!
God please bless and comfort all of Lee's loved ones and friends whom, I'm sure, miss him deeply.
