Memories Timeline


  1. Bill was my cousin and was such a kind soul and a special heart ❤️ he would have given you his last penny if you needed it, He touched the lives and hearts of many in his travel of over 4 million miles in the trucking industry, all who knew Bill were truly blessed to have known and worked with him, He will be forever in our hearts and memories, Our prayers and condolences and hearts will be close to Aunt Pat, and the entire family,

  2. My sincere condolences to Aunt Pat and the entire Lee Family!
    Bill was a wonderful part of our lives, and we certainly enjoyed all of his “stories of the road”. With all of the years he spent out there, he had quite a few.
    For myself, I truly appreciate the time that Bill took with Dad, (Uncle Tom) He always made sure to stop by and visit with us when he was in town. I loved to sit and listen to them talk about the trucking industry and their motorcycles adventures as they blew through a couple of pots of coffee!
    I will truly miss Bill, and I will be keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.
    Love to all of you,
    Mary Yockey
