    I newly from college. And I worked with him at YMCA camp. I’ve never met anyone as gentle and kind as Lee. His constant calm and dedicated demeanor was always a strength. I’ll miss him.

    I'm so sorry for your loss.I had the pleasure of meeting Lee a few times when visiting cousins in WI as he was friends with them. He became a familiar face and part of the family. He was always so kind and polite. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    Many people did not know of my gaming freindship with Lee. We were friends at camp and outside camp we'd roleplay a good amount back in the 90's. We played board games, Booth Hill, D&D, and he always had great concepts of characters and bag of voices and cheer to draw from. I'll miss ya buddy. He really gave of his heart and didn't expect much back.
