Mr. Lee told me when I met him....... Lives on Marco Island with "Uschi". Works in Real Estate. Retired CFO financier worked in the orient. Long time member of Knights of Columbus, and the American Legion. Volunteered Coast Guard Auxillary.
Plays guitar used to play with The Loving Spoonful in the 60's.
Seems like he did a lot; I missed a lot, I only met Mr. Lee earlier this year.
What I recognized right away, and was confirmed with every time I was with Skip.... is the magnetism and presence he had in a social encounter; engaging, charming, warm, polite. Very nice man.
The room seemed brighter when he was in it; It was.
Sincerely,
Daniel Morris, MD; Naples, Florida

Skip and I met as teenagers at the boatyard in his home town of Byram Connecticut. We became fast friends sharing out interest in boating and we spent many hours together out on Long Island Sound and at our family homes. He joked that someday he wanted to put the biggest outboard he could get on a gas tank and see how fast he could make it go. I guess that race boat he eventually drove was just about that description! A fond memory was lounging in his room while he played guitar chords and riffs that were intentionally so soothing that I actually dozed off! He got a good chuckle when I finally woke up! Skip was a good musician. I know he played in a band while he was in college. We lost touch after college when he worked for Singer and was in the Pacific and I ended up in Lake Oswego in the Pacific Northwest . However, I was able to get some news over the years. We made contact again last year when we found each other on social media. In that conversation we picked up right where we had left off nearly 50 years ago. Likable, witty, intelligent, caring, and always with a smile and a glint in his eye that probably continued for his entire life. I envy those of you who were able to be close to him all these years. I have added a photo of Skip at my wedding that says it all!
