Lee and I were in the same class in Natick High School. My best memories of him, however, are from our shared experience as members of the John Elliot Chapter of DeMolay in Natick. He was an active participant in whatever project or event we had in what was a very active chapter. Lee brought with him always a genuine kindness and "gentlemanly-ness". Whenever we would reconnect at reunions of our class, I always enjoyed speaking with Lee and learning of the many wonderful things he enjoyed in his life...in particular, his family. My condolences to his family.
