Chris, Mitzi and family, You have laid a great man to rest today and I'm sure you found that out. I wish I could have been there to say farewell to an old friend from Dannemora. We shared many laughs years ago that I will cherish forever. I'm sure that you gals have many fond memories of him, thoughts and prayers to all of you.

Kim and family, how sad to hear of Lee's death. He certainly was a pioneer of what the emergency service is today. His knowledge, example, compassion and leadership are strong memories I have of him. He often joked when I stepped into his "car position", that "I'm leaving you with some big shoes to fill, don't …. mess it up". I have great respect for this true Adirondack gentleman. Treasure his memories and Bravo Lee, on a life well lived.

Dear Susan, Beth, Christine and Mom.

We are unable to attend the services today for Dad. We know this a very difficult and challenging time and we will be thinking about you as you celebrate the life and many achievements of your Dad.

May We offer heartfelt condolences to each of you with the passing of Lee. Your Dad was accomplished as an individual and an outstanding member of the community; greatly respected by those who worked with him. Mom and Dad have raised three very special, exceptional, daughters each with warm hearts and a delight to know. I feel fortunate to have had an opportunity to spend time with you in the past and I well remember each of you as remarkable individuals and gifted students.

My wife Dawn and I are very sorry for your loss.
