Very sad to see of Lee's passing. He was a great guy that would always say hello and ask how we were doing. CBC Canada has lost one of their most loyal fans. RIP Lee.

Lee was a regular on our ASB bus trips. He loved going to the Hostfest and Medora with the group and was usually the first one signed up!. He was always a great guest to have on the trips and he'll be missed! Prayers to his family.

Lee was a joy! We enjoyed him at our GIFT(God in Faith tonight) meal at Faith United Methodist. We had such good visits on our way to church and then out to Westside to pick up his papers. A true friend and lover of Christ!

Lee had particular interests that one could count on. He always wanted to know what the gas prices were elsewhere. When our family returned from vacation that was always the question foremost on his mind. Also, Lee hand wrote the University of Tennessee Volunteer’s football schedule (my alma mater) for me at the beginning of the football season and left his meticulously neat copy in my mailbox at church. Lee loved to ring the bell before church services. A job he did with pride. God’s blessings to the Prochnow family. Lee and his predictable ways will be missed.

We always loved having Lee come with us on bus trips to the Host Fest! He loved Daniel O'Donnell and I'm not sure he realizes how big of a fan he's lost. Lee was a very sweet person and we will miss him at WCCU.

Very sad to hear of Lee's passing. He lived in the same building as my mother, and was always so sweet to me and the kids when we seen him. He was always opening the door for us and asking how we were. Very polite and nice. Thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
