    So sorry to hear of Lee’s passing. I knew his parents well and remember him when he was living here in Sullivan County.

    Lee was my sanity check buddy at work and will be dearly missed. We never met in person, but he talked dearly about his wife and son often. They were the love of his life and I am so sorry for the loss of a great husband and father. He was so ready in 4 years to just get out of the rat race and completely enjoy time with family. Lee had never taken as long a vacation as he did at the end of December 2016 and he greatly enjoyed it. His sudden loss is saddening, but it for sure puts in perspective than none of us are promised tomorrow. Take peace in knowing that Lee lived a good life even though it was cut way too short and he is in a better place today. Our prayers are with the Elchak family during this time of mourning of a great man.

    Loving husband. Devoted father. Heartfelt friend. A life well lived. None could be more true of anyone other than Lee. I will best remember Lee for his big heart, big smile and his love of life. He had more fun than anyone but was always calm, cool, and collected. He was generous with his time, and a great role model to children. I’ll never forget his patience when he taught our daughter to water ski – hundreds of attempts but he would not give up until she finally got it. He loved to be in the company of friends and was the core of our “lake crew”. Some of our fondest memories are from Sue and Lee’s Tiki bar parties, never complete without his signature margaritas and mud slides. He will be sorely missed.
