  35. Sean Ward says:

    I first met Lee in a video game called World of Tanks. Lee and I quickly became friends and were friends for almost three years. Over the course of the last three years Lee has listend to me complain and in turn Lee has done nothing but kept an open ear for me anytime I ever needed it. He was a good man and always talked about how good the food Tania always made him, I always had to laugh because he would always post pics of what he was getting to eat… man I was so jealous lol. I consider Lee a good and special friend and will never forget him or his wonderful other half Tania! Lee will be greatly missed by many and he will never be forgotten!
