My condolence to the Pitts Family. Lee was my freind and former TWA co-worker. I will remember him as a kind family man who enjoyed dancing with wife Beverly to Don Lipovac's Polka music and tending his garden. Traveling in Minnesota today, I am unable to attend the funeral service, but send my deepest sympathy to all who knew him. Rest in peace my friend.
