So many fun memories from family reunions, One of my early memories of Lee was when Sherm and I were first married and I didn't really know Lee that well then. He had a motorcycle and asked me if I had ever ridden on one and I said no. He said hop on and I will give you ride down the road. Naive me said " only if you promise to go slow". To which he replied "Of course I will". Well needless to say you can probably guess the rest. He went like a bat down the road and I swore I would never get on one of those things again and I would always think twice when he told me something. I also learned he was a prankster at that point!

The top picture was Flossie and Henry, Tink, Rod, Sherm and Lee. (1944) The other two were from his younger years. To all our nieces and nephews may you find smiles and memories to warm your heart. We will all miss Lee.

I have so many fond and funny memories of Uncle Lee. I could always count on him to give me grief about something (there's really another word I'm thinking of). He was never at a loss for words though sometimes he would stare for just a few more lingering minutes while he gathered his thoughts to come up with a zinger. Always well-thought out and purposeful in his incredibly humorous way. He was a great presence here on this lovely planet but will be even greater in heaven with Henry and Floss, Uncle Rod and my Dad. I can just imagine the greeting he received as he entered the gates of heaven. To all my cousins and Aunt Marlene and everyone who loved him, I'm so sorry for your loss. He will be missed for sure and we will remember him for all the goodness and the laughter and the truly kind-spirit he embodied and lived to share with us all. Lots of love, Mimi.

It is summertime in the early 70's and Uncle Lee and Aunt Marlene are in their kitchen. Sitting at the table is Uncle Rod meticulously picking out crab meat until a large bowl was filled. Uncle Lee opened his home to Rod so that Rod could enjoy an extended stay during the summer in Maine…the familiar place where he grew up. HIs act of kindness left an impression on a 9 year old girl!

To the “Maine cousins”…peace be with you.

Sincerely,

Jody “Massachusetts cousin”

Uncle Lee was always an impressive guy. As a kid I remember he built a truck and I thought "built a truck!". How does anybody build a truck? But he did. There really wasn't anything he couldn't do. The man was gifted. I remember when I was maybe 5 and lived on Long Island. He was visiting. I had a toy truck with a rocket launcher mounted on it and just as I was about to fire he said 'wait', adjusted my aim and I fired (at a very nice clock across the room). The plastic rocket hit the clock face dead center and both handles went limp and pointed to the 6. One shot and a fine one at that. We both cheered. It was brilliant. I don't remember if I got in trouble. All I remember is that Uncle Lee was quite good at rockets.

He had the best sense of humor and was always ready with a rib or a joke. He spared no one and we always looked forward to it. I remember another time, more recently, I borrowed Candy's outboard and with Lee's help loaded my wife, daughter and her friend into it and went out to Cranberry Island for a few days. Lee followed me out in his boat because he figured, me being a relative novice on the water, that I could kill everybody. I made it fine but was glad he did that. I didn't have to ask him to accompany me. He just knew it was the right thing to do.

I knew when we were in Maine last summer that it was probably the last time we'd see him. He was still Lee for sure but in bits and pieces. I'll miss him. He was a fine man and a fine uncle. He and Marlene raised a fine family and I wish peace for them all.
