Lee was always an asset when he went on the Farm Bureau bus trips to the Natl Farm Machinery Show, and i remember, as a kid, Lee and Doris were always at the horse shows at our place, he will be missed.
It was always a pleasure to see Lee over the years at the Yarmouth Gun Club shooting in the summer at our trapshooting league. He was always a gentleman with a very wry sense of humor. We will miss seeing him shooting here.
It was an absolute pleasure to make Lee smile! He was always so happy to give me lessons on how to be a farm wife. God bless you all and may you all be comforted knowing he is always with you.
