Ron Edinger, friend of Lee - He was a good friend from the Duke Field days. I spent many of "After Five And Weekends" with Lee as well as a couple of months in Saudi during Desert Storm. We also served together in the 919 SOW HQ when I was the Vice Commander and Lee was the Exec. It's very hard to think of anything to say that could possibly ease your pain, but please know that many of his old Duke Field buddies will miss him. ~

Bill Bosley, Eglin AFB, Florida - This is a very great loss. Lee was an exceptionally valuable member of our aircrew team. The repeated successful accomplishment of our Special Operations mission was a direct result of his professionalism and competence. ~

Barry Davis, Tallahassee, Florida - I had the privilege of working with Lee in the 711 SOS and the Florida Public Service Commission. I regret losing touch with him after I retired from the Air Force and Lee left the Commission. I have fond memories of our time together. I pray for the family dealing with his loss. ~

Al Greenup, Fort walton Beach, Florida - Lee was a gentleman and a great American who served his country with honor and professionalism. More than that, Lee was an all round good guy and made it easy to regard him as a great friend. Rest in peace Lee. We will miss you. ~

The Johnson High alumni will miss Lee very much.
