Condolence & Memory Journal

It was an honor knowing Lee these last 4-5 years. I really enjoyed watching his expertise and craftsmanship in building all those ships. That is a gift not many have and I will always remember. His love for dogs, he and I shared, and I cherish little Toby who Lee gave to me when he got too big to manage in his apartment. Helping Lee care for Willy has been a privilege, and I now pass him to Andrea who will love him like her father has, and enjoyed so much his company, he often said he didn't know what he would have done without his Willy.
My condolences to the family.

Lee assisted my husband and I when we remodeled our house in Crafton many years ago. When I say assisted, he offered many wonderful suggestions. Our relationship become more like a father guiding us into unknown territory. My husband (who is deceased) and I appreciated his humor, understanding and expertise on many occasions.

Lee was a delight to know and a wonderful friend.
