Lee and Marlene were our neighbors for 18 years. During that time, we had the amazing opportunity in sharing happy memories and seeing our families grow, play and be safe. We remember Lee playing with Kolton and then Gavin. The boys would ride up and down our street with those super fancy cars, as Lee followed and watched them. Those little guys and Lee were having the time of their lives. We got to see the smiles and hear the laughter that are precious. Lee was a calming, strong presence in our lives. We felt safer just being neighbors with Lee and Marlene. He was a great man, deeply respected. We will all miss him dearly. Marlene, we love you and know that this is a difficult time. Please know we are here for you, always.

Lee Stickney was a kind man. He was helpful and ready to lend a hand in any capacity to neighbors, friends, and family.

Lee was a loving man especially where his sweetheart, Marlene was concerned. He could not have admired her more and “had her back” in every way.

Lee was a family man and enjoyed holidays with Marlene, Geoff and Jason; not to mention his in-laws, nieces and nephews and great nephews Kolton & Gavin. There wasn’t a visit I paid to him over the years that he didn’t start a conversation with the latest updates on those two boys. He enjoyed their company and they treasured him too.

Lee was, as many know, a golfer. He loved the sport, the camaraderie and the promise of a beautiful warm day and a good score.

Lee was well-read. He was an entrepreneur, creative, loved beauty, the outdoors and being productive. It’s no doubt he is and will continue to be missed by his family and friends.

May God grant a special comfort on his family as they mourn his loss , more importantly, celebrate his life.

Always Love
Tracy and The Family Pease

When I joined the Nevada State Seniors GC Lee was one of the first to welcome me and make me feel comfortable as a member. Over the years as we got to know each other my respect for Lee grew immensely. I've always thought I am a colorful guy but I could not hold a candle to Lee on the golf course. When I became a member of the Board Lee once again was there to make me feel comfortable. Over the past several years after I became President of the club Lee was always there to answer a question or to volunteer his time, even as his health deteriorated. In my book Lee was and will forever be the heart and soul of the NSSGC. Rest in Peace my friend!

Lee was probably the first one to welcome me to the Nevada State Seniors golf club. He was always kind and considerate. He always asked how I was doing and really was sincere about my well being. We always had a great time on the course and he never looked down on anyone that couldn't golf as well as he. If you asked him for guidance he would make recommendations and would help you anyway he could. I will miss Lee and all the good times we had. Rest in peace brother.

On behalf of the entire staff @ Palm Valley Golf Club and Highland Falls Golf Club we would like to wish the family our deepest condolences. Lee was a great person and will deeply be missed. He definitely loved golf as this was definitely one of his finest passions. We had the privilege to see Lee 2 to 3 times a week when he played. He was always up to date on anything to do with golf. He was also one of the best dressed golfers that walked through our doors. Again, Lee will be deeply be missed. God bless.

I have known and played golf with Lee for 20 years and have always enjoyed being paired with him and his partner when we played Nevada State Seniors G.C. events. Lee worked tirelessly for many years in the club as Board Member, President, Tournament Director, Rules Official and other capacity. Lee always arrived first at the course, dressed as sharply as any golfer I've seen and prepared to play. Lee always found a way to win the big tournaments, the ones that meant the most such as the Club Championship - he was always humble about it. Lee was a great golfer and a great person to be around and will be missed. Rest in Piece Lee.

I didn’t get to know lee as well as I should have, but I did run into him enough at the golf course to know he was a super good man, super good dresser and a super good golfer. Hit em long and straight my man, we will play again some day.
