Lee loved watching and playing sports. He enjoyed motorsports events, football games, baseball games, boxing/MMA, and golf. He was a huge fan of the Chicago White Sox, Chicago Bears, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Alabama Crimson Tide football, and whatever team his grandkids were playing on.

His kids and grandkids knew him as Dad, Grandpa, Leebert, Pa, Bud, Slick, Pal, Old Man. He was always there for them whenever they needed and it always came with a life lesson.
