We did She Loves Me together and he was such a gem to work with. He always had a joke every rehearsal. He was such a nice guy, and was truly in character all the time. Going to miss his sweet nature that he brought to rehearsal! Rest easy Lee we all will miss you!

Always enjoyed being in shows with Lee at the PA Playhouse. Lee was a gentleman and a classy guy who always saved the drama for on stage, not off. So sorry for your loss as I know he will be missed.
