Lee will be greatly missed. Some of the most precious memories in life will be of times spent with you all. He greatly impacted my life and was one of the best leaders I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing and working for. He’s the only person who could tease you in true “Lee” form that didn’t offend you but made you laugh at yourself. I could always count on him to give sound advice and guidance. It’s been a true blessing to have known him as friend and family. Love you all and my deepest empathy and sympathy are with you.

Tammy, my deepest sympathy to you and your family in the loss of your dad. I had the pleasure of dealing with him about some property issues at my shop several years ago. He was such a nice man and so very helpful to me. I know you will all miss him.
