Dear Becky and Family;
Sue and I are so saddened to hear of Lee’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
I first met Lee in 1979 while we both were attending the Amphibious Warfare School, Quantico, VA. His sense of humor set the tone for our on-base neighborhood and fellow classmates. Our careers crossed paths several times to include COMNAVAIRSYSCOM and the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA). After I retired from the Marine Corps in 2000 I had the pleasure of working with Lee at Sierra Management. More importantly, over the years we had some great discussions concerning our shared interests in logistics and U.S. history. He was one of the best! Lee will be missed.
Mike and Sue Kennedy

What a true Officer and a Gentleman and a true Marine Corps Officer to the Corp! I worked with Lee at DGSC Richmond as a Naval Officer and then later at Sierra Technology, when Lee hired me as a contractor. That smile, his wit, and laugh, and his honesty and straight-forward opinions were his haul-mark. I’ll miss you Lee (COL). V/r, Rich Bradshaw, USN Supply Corps, (RET). Midlothian , Virginia.
