He still lives in this suburb of Denver with his wife, Sandra and 3 children, Dominic(17), Alexandra(16) & Miles (13). Due to a disease of the eyes(Retinitis Pigmentosa), Lee is is now legally blind and has recently been laid off from his job at IBM after 17 years. Now, with time on his hands, he has decided to challenge himself attempting to walk 1000 miles in 1000 hours!
