Lee graduated from Jackson High School in 1962. He retired as a Captain from the Jackson City Fire Department after 25 years of service. He was an avid bowler, a member of the Jackson Bowling Hall of Fame and youth hockey coach for several years. He was his kids and grandchildrens biggest fan, and spent countless hours in the stands cheering us all on. Lee had a big heart and he loved fiercely. A big thank you to special neighbors Theo and Susan Nash, for the countless times they took care of Dad and Chubby.
