    Kasey, my deepest sympathy to you and your family, I have many great memories of “Spanky”, he and his electric personality always made me smile. I truly enjoyed being in his company, and he will surely be missed! One thing for sure, there’s a hell of a softball team up there! May God rest your soul my friend!!

    Lee was a very good man that loved his family with all his heart. He always had a nice greeting and was very respectful and considerate. Had many enjoyable times that will be his legacy to me and I believe everyone that met him, let alone knew him, feels the same.
    God bless the family and friends of a very good man.

    Lee was such a great person and I feel very fortunate to be one of his neighbors of 14 years. His smile was contagious and his friendly demeanor left a positive impact to all of us.
    We are in utter shock, we had no idea Lee was fighting this battle in silence…
    We are saddened by this huge loss to his beautiful family.
    Our hearts are with all of you.
    Your dad left a positive impact in all of our lives and will live forever in our hearts.
    I am so deeply sorry..

    Can still picture Lee & Helen cruising in his classic Rambler living and loving life together. What a handsome happy couple. Time passes so quickly taking the ones we love, glad their generous spirit lives on in their family. So sorry for your loss, will always remember both your parents with love.

    I am in shock! I just saw your dad a week or so ago at the Giant in Aston. I really liked Lee a lot and was so happy to have run into him. He often stopped at the stop sign in front of my house and we would chat quickly since he was either on his way back to work or to the market. I spoke with him a lot, years ago when Kris played on teams I was coaching. What a wonderful man!
    Lita and I are sending prayers and our love for your comfort for the loss of your wonderful Dad. He will be truly missed in the community. May he rest in peace.
