He was the finest brother in law besides odie bracy. We had many laughs together. He lived as long as someone in 2000 whod benn born in 1938. Great perspective! I miss him already.

Lee was my oldest brother. I’m heartbroken. I can never listen to Billy Joel without thinking of him because when I was 9 or 10 he had gotten the 52nd street 8 track tape and let me come out in his car and listen to it making me a lifelong fan. I always think of that memory and it makes me happy. Of course over the years we raised our children and spent many family occasions and visits but my childhood memory is special because he asked me, his pesky little sister to come and listen to his new tape. I love you big brother and will miss you greatly.
