On 22 October 2015, Lee passed away from acute myeloid leukemia after a short but valiant battle. For those who never had the pleasure of meeting Lee or interacting with him, we can tell you that he was a great man. He was loved by all who served on his study sections, as he went out of his way to make the grant review process as effective, efficient, and fair as possible. While all of us have stories to tell about Lee, I in particular (KC) can remember his enthusiasm for review and his efforts to ensure that everyone was treated equally (both reviewers and applicants). Lee really took care of his reviewers, often arranging dinners and snacks, despite the bureaucratic NIH rules concerning food and refreshments that sometimes got in our way. I can remember Lee negotiating with hotel personnel to provide dinner when meetings ran late, and to keep everything within the rules we would all contribute $5 to the meal.
