Lee ran the Chicken Time in Vernal from around 1972-1982. He worked in construction for many years as a hod tender. He later started his own business in lawn care. He enjoyed visiting his customers and helping the elderly. He became friends with all of them.
Lee enjoyed all sporting events, but his favorite was watching his grandkids play. He was a sports fanatic!
Lee was always happy and had a smile on his face. He had the Jackson belly laugh that is absolutely contagious! He was a joker and a tease and loved giving those he loved a hard time. He always said exactly what he was thinking.
We will miss you so much!!
