Lee was a great guy. I remember in 97, calling him for tech support and, when he found out I was from Montreal Canada, he asked if it was true (a friend had tell him) that we had pickle, ketchup and onion flavored potato chips... I said yes, it's no joke and seeing he was still sceptic, I told him I'll send some samples. The package never made it through Customs (Food regulations...) When I called him back to explain, he said this was the best lie he heard in a long time...!

He was a cheerful fellow and helped me a lot. My sympathies to his loved ones.

Wasn´t Lee the author of some tutorial about the X Files logo? i almost sure...
I think he is (was) a young man... sad to know.

Lee was a nice guy and damn funny too.

Lee did write a tutorial showing how to use EI and AE to do an X-Files logo.

Lee was a good sort. This is awful news. He was too young for this. God bless him.
