His quiet presence belied his strength of character and generous nature - qualities he passed on to his children and grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, Roy and Ethel; and his motherin-law, Joyce Wilkerson.

Lee was many things to me: architect, teacher and friend. He took great pride in his work and his family. He was a credit to our profession and to Freese and Nichols. He will be missed.

Lee was one of the best when he was here at Freese & Nichols. I thoroughly enjoyed working on projects with him. A kind and gentle soul who had time to teach the less experienced.
