The Ross Moore family of Midland, Texas greatly missed Lee when he divorced. My grandfather (ill Hurt) and my Dad and my brother Steve and I enjoyed many quail hunts in Cass County, Texas during holidays. Lee was a great guy and we really enjoyed having him with us. We affectionately talked of Lee those many decades apaart from him. And he was always a part of the after hunt festivities: drinking a cold one, cleaaning birds and talking aboutthe tough shots we made and the easy ones we didn't make. Although only my two sisters, Kathy and Sara, and I are the only ones left of that era, we will always remember Lee with a very great fondness. Our prayers are with him, his family and his many friends.
