One Damn good guy. I always enjoyed having a beer and talking with Lee. I knew him since I was a young man. Sail On Seaman!

I got acquainted with Lee at the "Lower Course" shortly after moving to French Lick.  I played many rounds of golf with him.  He thoroughly enjoyed the game.  I have appreciated his friendship the past 20+ years.  my condolences to his family.
