His interests included working in his garages and on his many “tonka toys,” boating and waterskiing any time he could, studying the Spanish language and a darn-good barbequed steak. He loved spending time with his family, grandchildren and his favorite cat, Smokie. He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He loved to serve others and read the Book of Mormon.

The photo in the obituary is exactly how we remember Lee, with welding hat in place and intent focus on the task at hand. He was seldom idle. How we will miss him! I'm so glad we had the trip to Sedona together. It was timed perfectly. All our best of wishes, prayers and sympathies go out the Warr Family left behind. For Lee, he is home with Suzanne and we are happy for him. John and Carrie Birchett (and girls)
