I heard a quote once that said something along the lines of “people will likely not remember what you said or what you did, but how they made you feel”. This sticks out to me when I think about Lee! When you talked to him he gave you 110% of his attention. He made everyone around him feel valued and loved. He did not know a stranger in high school and could find a common ground with everyone. I know he had a lot of physical pain but his positivity was inspiring, truly.
I knew Lee briefly from a past connection. He visited us here in Coeur d’Alene Idaho as he was passing through.  An amazing young man. A beautiful tribute. Thank you for sharing beautiful bits of his story ♥️
I understand the deep value of understanding and being understood. Like Leeboy, as we comfort with the comfort we have been comforted by God can reach to and thru one another’s caring embrace

I’m so thankful to have known Lee. My family lived across the street from the Taylors for many years over on Santa Fe in Kokomo. Lee was an amazing friend and lived a beautiful life. The Taylors were all a blessing to us. Lifting you all in prayer! Praying for your strength during these times. Love you Taylor family! My heart hurts for you.

Lee was the consummate valuer of persons. We’ve been separated by many miles, but we’d connect by phone. He was never one to rush off of a conversation. A small but significant custom was that at the end of the call, he’d linger a bit longer to express a little extra affirmation, love, caring… I’m pretty sure I always ended up hanging up first. He just never wanted anyone to feel “cut off” in some way. Lee, you made a difference.

Dave Bowerman

Really grateful for this time with all of you to grieve and celebrate Lee. He made my life richer with his friendship. I don’t think I’ll ever comprehend the pain he had to live with. But all of us are proof of the love and care he cultivated even with that burden. I’ll miss his phone calls and text messages to check in. My heart breaks for Grace and his family, and all the people who loved him. I’m so glad he’s no longer in pain. And I’m so sad he’s gone.

James Pearson

Lee was one of my very first friends I met when I started going to high school. He had this way of making you just want to be around him. He was truly an amazing person.


There aren’t enough words for the joy, courage, effervescence, encouragement and love that Lee brought to everyone around him.

Susan Williams Haas

I love seeing the incredible ripple effect of the love this one precious man had for every person he met. Not a day will go by that I won’t miss him and mourn the loss of his joyful countenance.

Candace Sprinkle

Lee was the most influential person in my childhood. Starting from basketball camp at 10 years old to high school. After high school, we stopped hanging out but always kept in touch. He was such an amazing man. I’m celebrating the fact he’s no longer in pain and living his best life in heaven right now, but it’s hard; the world just lost the most genuine, loving, wonderful man possibly the world’s ever had. You can’t say enough about this man. He would literally give you the shirt off his back! Love you, Lee; I’ll see you soon, sir!

Jerry Baker

I am thankful for all the things I don’t deserve that Lee made possible for me – I sit here now with my future wife that I never would have met if it wasn’t for Lee – For the endless conversations that helped me through some of the hardest times in my life.  

Ryan Hyatt

I don’t know who will read this, but I want you to know Lee touched my life, too. My prayers are with his loved ones.
