As you may know Lee Pierce had a heart attack on Friday and he passed away this morning.
Our sympathies go to Helen, Marlene, Janet and their families and to the hundreds of friends that they had made over their lifetime. I will miss Lee so much, he had forgotten more that I know about all types of machinery.
They don't make them like Lee anymore
Please post an obit, Tony. He became a regular contributor here in the last couple of years. He will be missed.
My condolences to the family.
I never had the pleasure of meeting him, but I do remember his posts here on the forum. I know that he will be missed. My condolences also. Dave
I attended many HCCA and MTFCA tours with Lee and his wife. A great old car guy who will be missed by all who had the pleasure of meeting him.
A great loss. Another member of the "Greatest Generation" headed home. Rest in Peace Lee.
My deepest sympathy to Mr. Pierces family.
R.I.P. Lee Pierce, My girls and I send our love and prayers to your family:?( you will truly be missed by many people not just through our SD Chapter but many others. Thank you for the legacy of knowledge you've passed on to others it will live on I'm sure.

Lee was one of he first members I met when I got my first T and joined the club. He has been very helpful to me in teaching me how to work on a T and in fixing problems with my T's. Not only a man who would help fix a T without charging an arm and a leg, but I had to ask for the privilege of paying him for his time and expertise. Lee has a wonderful family and will be missed by them and by all of his friends.
Lee was a great asset to the hobby. San Diego will never be the same without him. He made some parts for us and was a good customer as well. He helped many in the Model T hobby and we have lost a great friend. My condolences to his family. May he find rest in Model T heaven.
It always saddens me to hear of these losses. My condolences to his family and close friends. I always enjoyed reading his posts here and will miss him myself. Even though I never knew him personally.
When I moved to San Diego 11 years ago, the divers broke some spokes on one wheel of my T taking it off the flatbed. I didn't know anyone in San Diego, so called Chaffin's to ask if they knew of someone who could help me. They said Lee was a good customer and gave me his number, I called him, and he said come right over. I took the wheel, he worked on it for about 2 hours, and it was better than new! He would not accept any payment, no matter what I did, even for parts and materials. When we sent him a basket of cookies, HE THANKED ME! And he was the first person I met in San Diego.
At our club meetings, we always say the Pledge of Allegiance at the beginning, and Lee always said "play ball!" after the pledge. It got to the point in the last several years when he couldn't attend the meetings that some one else would always say "Play Ball!" and everyone would murmur "Lee Pierce" and smile.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family Lee. Somewhere up there, Model T's are going to be running better!
Lee was a very good friend. He was always there to help anyone with an old car problem. A very giving person. I can not say enough good things about Lee and his family. Lee will be missed by many.....God probably has him busy keeping all the T,s in Heaven running. Lee enjoyed keeping busy....especially working on Model T's in his shop. Everything had it's place.

Hello friends of Lee... thankyou for your kind words. We are all heartbroken. Lee and Helen had soooo much fun with the car clubs, and had so many wonderful friends. He loved reading the Forum, and would read every single post. Jan and Marlene, Lee and Helen's daughters.
