Lea was a beloved family man; his granddaughters were the light of his world. He was especially known for his giving nature, witty humor, and contagious, radiant laugh. He constantly stayed busy, as he was a skilled mechanic who enjoyed working with his hands. Lea cherished working with his son on the farm and spending time in his garden with his granddaughters. His granddaughters could always count on his smiling face front row, cheering them on at every dance recital, science project, sporting event, graduation, and anything else they embarked upon.
