Lee and I were teammates on the 1973 National Championship Team at Louisiana Tech.
He and Chris Cummings were my running buddies and we all shared the Love of true friendship for life. Even though we were geographically in different states our feelings for one another was never questioned. We shared lots of great times together and experienced a great football team with the Bulldogs in 1973. Lee was one of my favorite people in my life. I know that one day we will all be reunited in heaven and it will be glorious. To his sweet wife Connie and daughter, Kelsey and son Tucker, your family was what was the most important thing to Lee. He will always be in your hearts and will live there for the rest of your lives which is a comfort. # 44, I love you and will see you again. Steve (Stevie) Kahn
