I met Lee my freshman year of high school. He was an amazing gymnast! He was fun and had a sweet spirit about him and was always laughing.
He was my brother-in-law for a time and the father of Michael, my dear nephew. I was saddened to learn of his passing. Still young. It’s been many years and miles since those times. My condolences to his family.

I was so sorry to hear of your passing. We’d lost touch over the years with working and families keeping us busy....and sending us in opposite directions. However, I have a flood of old and wonderful memories. You were not only a classmate of mine, but a good friend. You could always make me laugh. You were the type of guy everyone wanted to hang out with.
You will be missed. Rest In Peace, my friend.

I just found out that you have passed in your Black Z-28 with Penny and Ginger ridding shotgun. In the back seat you put the Music that you loved so much and you were a great fan of the House Band at the Barn Board who turned out to be very good friends of yours.
You are a well loved man and a kind soul that is why I fell in love with you. We where a good couple Lee with 20 years of marriage something went the right direction. The reason we moved back home to Rumford at the end of our marriage is because we weren't working and needed to be home with our families.
There are allot of things I could share with people that should be shared about you but they will remain in my ❤️ forever.
I will always love you Lee and hope to see you when I am next. Jody
