Dear Ann and Family, we were very fortunate to have Lee as our Spiritual Leader for St. Vincent de Paul. We personally never had an opportunity to socialize with you and Lee, but his personality was so warm that it made us feel as if we had known him all our lives. It is said that you never know how many lives you touch, with just a smile or a kind word, and he touched many, many of us. His homilies were so full of his adventures, that just listening him, made it seems as if you were there with him. He will be greatly missed.

May God Bless you Ann and the family

Part II Deacon Lee was the man who emphasized to me, the importance and in an indirect way, and new standard of honor that now allows me to look at the world in a of doing the right thing, more accepting, forgiving, and open-minded manner. None of us are perfect, and if he were here, he would insist that he wasn’t either, but since he has regrettably left us, I can now brag about him without his modest self-effacing. We always used to complement each other back and forth, and now it is my chance to do so for the last time (at least until I need to tell someone his story). Because, that’s what I’ll be doing. He wrote great homilies, and even though they weren’t stories, his life was a story. One about a deacon, a grandfather, father, husband, and friend. I think it’s everyone’s root wish to live a full life— and “Grandpa” Deacon Lee did just that, inspiring others by merely being kind to others, and keeping the goodness that Christ wants from us all. He would always say not to “sweat the small stuff” and “fugeddaboutit” but my mother and I will certainly never forget about him, and all that he did for God, us, and others.
Lee, the creakin’, sneakin’ deacon, will be missed.
We love you.
Kathy and Amanda

Part I Deacon Lee Hinderscheid was a wonderful man, and went above and beyond for anyone he loved. Knowing him since around the age of eleven, his spiritual wisdom, unique sense of humor, and nonjudgmental outlook definitely shaped who my mother and I are today. When I saw him shortly before he left us there was a sadness of course, the sadness of missing a man who was so extraordinary and had done so much, that he would leave a pretty sizable empty space in all of the hearts that knew him. Unselfishly however, on a deeper, practical level, I was not bereft at all. Deacon Lee was a man who did what we all should aspire to do. He helped others, remained humble (and proud of it), always striving to go the extra mile for whoever needed it. Even outside his astounding dedication to St. Joan of Arc church and other ecclesiastic pursuits, like the women’s prison, he by no means missed any trains of opportunity that came his way. He lived in Africa for a few years during his work with Firestone, bringing back stories of old friends, bark less dogs, and snakes that “when vexed, it makes his neck go wide.” He also regaled us with stories of his visits around the country such as China, but nothing was more precious than the man himself was. The man you could always go to seek advice, who would never make you feel out of place or wrong about your thoughts or feelings. The man who would encourage you to share your “time, talent, and treasure” in order to make the best of what God gave you. The man who, most importantly, stressed the importance of “doing the loving thing”. I learned from Deacon Lee that, though love is a feeling, its deeper, more steadfast form is choice. The choice to forgive when someone hurts you, the choice to listen when you feel you don’t really have time or patience, the choice to understand, rather than blame and burn bridges in your life.

Sending love and prayers for Lee, Ann and the family. We were just remembering how kind (and fun) Lee and Ann were as we were going through Diaconate formation. Thinking of Lee with this quote "When through one man a little more love and goodness, a little more light and truth comes into the world, then that man's life has had meaning." God Bless

Dear Ann and Family,
Thoughts and Prayers for you from all of us at St. Hilary Parish in Fairlawn, Ohio. Deacon Lee is remembered here for his great faith, dedication, outgoing nature, story telling, and wonderful laugh and sense of humor! We continue to be grateful for his many years of dedicated service here as business manager during a time of immense growth and a building boom! We know that Father Gordon Yahner and he are now sharing many laughs and memories in heaven. Hard to imagine that they have now both preceded us to the other side.
All of our Love,
Fr. Steve Brunovsky

Dear Ann and family,
So sorry to hear about Deacon Lee. He was a wonderful man and will enjoy Heaven. I enjoyed serving with him at St. Joan of Arc Parish during my years in Florida. I will remember him this weekend at the Masses I serve.
God bless you all. May the Lord give you strength during this difficult time.
Sincerely, Fr. Henry Hemmerling
