Obituary: Lee Cornelius

8/12/1939 ~ 9/30/2004

He had a smile that greeted you before he said hello and a laugh that stayed with you after he said goodbye. He was optimistic and cheerful and spread happiness wherever he went. He was a gentle manso loving and kind, honest and fair. He was someone you were proud to know. He was a man of integrity, admired and respected by everyone who knew him and an example to all. He was hard working, extraordinarily talented and always gave his best because anything less wouldn't do.

He loved his wife dearly and the life they created together discovering the Redwoods, 4-wheeling up Notom Road, watching the hummingbirds in their backyard and thousands of other good memories. He also loved his children and enjoyed watching them and their families grow.

He was courageous to the end and taught everyone the meaning of strength and the power of love.

He was a husband, a father, a grandfather and above all else he was our friend. He was everything and more to us and we look forward to the time when we will be together again. Until then, you'll always be in our hearts

we pinkie swear!
