Lee’s life was spent serving his family, communities, and the Episcopal Church. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather who enjoyed being with his family. His warm smile and rich sense of humor were unforgettable and will be greatly missed.

  2. Dear Aunt Pat, Sandy, and Glen,

    Loving thoughts and prayers during this time. I am so sorry for your sadness and the loss you are all sharing right now. My greatest memory of Uncle Lee is his smile and his voice. He was always very patient, gentle natured, and loving with his nieces, and the three of us girls loved him very much. We love each of you. Peace be with you. Hugs
