I can't even verbalize what it meant to be Lee Smith's friend, he was the epitome of what a friend was meant to be. I could relate stories for hours of what an impression he made on me when I graduated from high school. When I went to work for Amoco and went to the field from the plant in 1974 he gathered me up to show me the ropes because I had no idea what to do, He was bigger than life and excelled at everything he did, hunt, fish, tell stories, coach basketball, and just being your friend. I have thought of him often though I haven't seen him in years, he was not a perfect man, none of us are, but he was the perfect friend for me at my most impressionable time in life. He taught me what friends are supposed to be. I will miss him.

I was so glad to see & give Lee a hug at Uncle Roberts funeral . My favorite memory of Lee is when he taught me his truck driver talk, “ Scramble eggs and Texas toast and what we’ve known coast to coast.” His bigger than life personality will be missed. My thoughts are with all of you. Hugs & Prayers.
