  • My deepest sympathy to Lee’s family. Lee will be missed by all who knew him! My father, George Keeler (now deceased), worked with Lee at Continental Can Co in Mount Vernon. George would remark how very intelligent Lee was and such a great person to work with. May God Bless You All and soon recall all wonderful memories of Lee and Leona – a fun loving and devoted couple!!
