  3. We were so sorry to hear about Lee passing away. Dave & I worked with Lee for years at Motor Convoy. We was such a sweet man and we enjoyed him so very much. I’m sorry this is so late but we just found out about this today. Please accept our condolences.

  4. What an interesting and fine friend Lee was! We worked together for many good years with Motor Convoy and Allied. I had a long talk with him in September when he told me about his move. He spoke so very well of his children and how supportive you (family) were to him. May Lee rest in peace.
