Remembering & thinking of school (OFA, class of '65) & that friend w/such a great personality & smile...Lee was a very special friend. Also, was great to see him @ our 10 yr. reunion & again in 2000. RIP, Lee & TY for our friendship. Condolences to Lee's family.

Dear Jim, Pam & Nan and all family, Hi, My best memory of Lee and DRG is the past summer, when Dave & Jim cooked up the most delish picnic at his house. Jim, you mean so much to this Dix family...thanks for being such a great friend to our children through the years. And for the recent Uber rides, snow removal etc. I know Lee put a strong fight against his last illness. Love and God Bless, Les, Eileen Whalen & family PS: We'll miss him ( & you when you return to CA)

So sorry for your loss, Jim, you look just like your father at that age. Crazy! Thanks for being one more big brother always looking out for me and the girls! Love, love, love!
