My sincere condolences to the family. May you find comfort by drawing close to God during this difficult time. James 4 : 8
Buddy was a constant part of my life. His good nature was always apparent. We will miss him dearly. Many happy times together. Thanksgiving family dinners were always made special when Joyce and Buddy came to town. Love you forever Buddy and will miss you dearly.
Dear Joyce, Chris and Family:
I was so sorry to hear of Lee's passing. However, I am sure he is in a better place. Such memories - from your wedding, our family friendship and then ten years of working with Lee. I am glad we shared those times. He will be missed.
God bless you all!
Dear Joyce and Chris,
Lee was a major part of our industrial life for several decades. Although Lee was technically our competitor, we never felt that he was really anything but our friend. Many lunches and meetings over decades meant that we were primarily friends and business was a small part of our relationship.
Dear Joyce and Chris, I was Mayor's Assistant to Leland when he was Mayor in Burbank. We worked together for one exciting year, when what was to become Bob Hope Airport was being formed. I remember him with great fondness. I appreciate so much that Joyce and Lee came to my Dad's service ( Robert Shanks) in Burbank in 1990, and wish I could attend Lee's. I've worked with many Mayor's over the course of my career in city government, but never one with Lee's passion, leadership, and legacy. He was the best. Jane (Shanks) Chambers, City Manager (Ukiah, CA)
