Predeceased by wife Jean and grandson Jacob Edmonds. In his youth, Lee was an excellent baseball pitcher. He was once scouted for tryouts with the Brooklyn Dodgers. Lee spent the war years working the farm to supply the troops as part of the war effort. He was a long-time apple farmer who grew and sold a variety of apples. For a number of years, he sold Farm Chemicals for the Barker Company. His life-long interest was air planes. As a child he was dazzled by the barnstorming planes and air shows in the 1930's. Later he acquired, repaired and rebuilt airplanes. He built an airstrip on his North Rose farm and for the next 30 plus years he hosted plenty of antique, tail dragging and other aircraft fly-ins, barbecues and breakfasts. He also attended the Oshkosh Wisconsin fly-in 5 times. He loved and supported his children and their families. He will be missed and remembered by all.
