My condolences to Lee’s family (Joan his wife and his daughters Sara and Katharine), friends, the entire Wrestling communities. He was a good friend to me. I met Lee in July, 1977 during the Jr. World Wrestling Championship in Las Vegas. I was representing Iran National Greco-roman Team at that time and later when I moved to U.S. he invited me to wrestle for him in Skyline College. I have had many memorable times during 1980 to 1982 season and I am proud to say that we share a wall in Skyline College Hall of fame. Lee, Thanks for the good memories. So long my friend rest in peace. Ali Nazari Former Iran Jr. National Wrestling Team Arvada, Colorado
