When he wasn’t working, Lee was always spending time with his family and friends. He will be jokingly remembered for his strong and opinionated personality by those that knew him. He loved music, dancing, helping people and being in the presence of loved ones and friends. He was a loving dad, brother, grandpa, caring and hardworking man with a beautiful soul that touched many lives. He will be greatly missed by his family and his friends.
