VALENTINE, Leon "Lee"
Leon "Lee" Valentine passed peacefully on January 30, 2013 from complications of the flu. He was born Feburary 4, 1932 in Selby, So Dakota and moved to Northern California with his family as a young boy. He leaves his devoted wife of 26 years, Robin Valentine, his daughters, Sandy Valentine & Deborah Henderson, Grandsons, Bryce & Ryan Donahue & niece, Cheryl Hockersmith.
Lee served in the Navy and had a long, successful career in real estate & housing development, starting C-21-Val Realty over 40 years ago. He loved fishing, especially in Mexico, traveling around the world and honing his skills as a Master Wood Turner. There were no strangers to Lee, just friends he hadn't yet met and his irreverent sense of humor made him the life of the party. He will be missed by all and his memory cherished.
A Memorial Service will be held at 2:00 p.m., Wednesday, February 6, 2013 at Vista Manor, 2525 E. Wildwood Canyon Dr., Glendora 91741. For more information, please call Sandy at 626.914.7817 or 626.536.7817
