There are so many things I could say about Lee. We all hung out together as teenagers and there were some who even married a couple of the guys we hung out with!!! Our lives took many directions but we would end up meeting again whether it was in person or online. He was always able to make me laugh, but sometimes we would argue, but never did we stay mad. I want to tell the family how sorry I am that a good guy was taken so soon, but I know he was loved. He will be missed!! Love you Lee Keller!

Lee was the first boss I ever had, back when I was 16 and working at Officemax. I also met my now wife there, and Lee was the man who married us. Lee, you were a great man who touched so many lives and you will be greatly missed.

I share one of the most important days of my life with Uncle Lee. In August it will be 29years since he married Keith & I. I remember us going over to talk to him about marrying us. He was wanting to make sure that was what we wanted and then he started asking if I had any preferences of service. I said simple, I'm a simple girl. He said oh okay I can do my 45 minute service! I looked at him and apparently the look was enough...he busted out laughing! Anyway, he was wonderful to us!! And, NO, it wasn't his 45 minute service. It was a very memorable moment! I really appreciate the love and understanding he showed me through that day. Yes, he did have the wedding congregation laughing a few times. Which is exactly how I like people, happy! Thank you Uncle Lee for taking such an important role in my life and always having a smile for me! Love and prayers to the family & friends!
