So sorry to hear about Lee's passing. I didn't have the pleasure of bumping into him very often in the past several years, but when I did he always made me laugh and feel happy! It is apparent from all of the other comments that he was able to provide that gift to many others as well. I lucked out being a hockey parent for a few years with Lee, and many years of having him ref my guys. Will remember you fondly Lee. Rest in peace. My deepest sympathy to Steven and the entire family.

I feel so lucky and blessed to say Lee was a friend, not just a coworker, after 19 years working ,learning and laughing. I will always strive to work as hard him. Lee's presence always filled a room . If things were tough he had a way of letting you know he was there with you. And apart from his amazing witt ....he was a very caring person.
I have always looked up to my friend I am going to miss very much

Lee was one of the first people I met when I moved to Orangeville 40 years ago. We could go extended periods of time without seeing each other but when we did there was always something to talk about when we connected. Hockey was first and foremost whether it was minor or junior hockey and Sunday night men's league. Lee always let you play. Lee had the personality to deal with people and never had a problem managing the game at any level. Lee had it all, personality, whit and timing not just when he called a game but in everyday life. My deepest sympathy to Steven and the entire family.

To say I'm going to miss Lee is an understatement. Worked closely with him the last 18 years at Bryan's. Many coffee and lunches together. A tonne of laughs and conversations. He'd show up to a call I was at and it would make my day. The sarcasm, wit and charm will be missed. Not sure how I'll get through the long winters without ya. Going to miss those phone calls and funny texts. It won't be the same. Rest easy.
