Our hearts are broken. You are a person we should all strive to be. Intelligent, always tried to do what was right, funny, practical joker, loved to laugh, kind, always willing to help anyone who needed a hand or anything else that was needed.Never wanting anything in return and I'm sure many other adjectives people can think of. You loved your family ❤️ . We are so grateful to have all
the memories especially the past 14 years or so. You are more than an uncle you are our friend. Love Rick and Kim Towne

Aunt Kathe and family
It is with great sadness that I write to you. Uncle Lee was an amazing and well loved man. I will miss him terribly and will forever hold his memory in my heart. We had the best Summer vacations there with my mom and she cherished him so much. There was always fun to be had and always a joke. I totally believed him as he brought out his jackolope and convinced me it was real with the straightest face. I still ponder over him creating the thing and having it at the ready to fool some gullible unsuspecting person. Uncle Lee give my mom and sister a hug for me and you guys raise some heck. ❤️ Donna and family
