  1. Brother, You fought a great battle, you never gave up, I kniow that over the years in our earlier days you were more of a father than an older brother, you were there teaching me about the way this world works and so many other things that have lead to me being who I am today. We had many, many, Great times and few bad that we laughed about til the end. Your in a better place now, no pain, hurt or suffering. Things will be better for you now..I’ll see you soon Love Tom

  2. I still have childhood memories of Lee, before our separate lives were scattered away from our hometown. To my cousins and 2nd cousins I may not have met, I extend my condolences, and look forward to that big family reunion on the other side of this life…

  4. Lee was one of the funniest and best guys I ever new. We bowled together,danced together and laughed together. He had the greatest dry since of humor ever. He will be missed.

  5. When I think of Lee, I think of his laugh. He could cheer me up like no one else. He also had a great hug, a bear hug! I hadn’t seen him in a while, but thought of him often. He made a big impression on my children and family and we will miss him greatly. My deepest condolences go out to the Fulcher family for their loss. Liz

  6. I am breathless as I write this. I never knew I would have to say goodbye. Thank you, Lee, for always, always believing in me. Thank you for yelling at me when I was wrong, and how often was I wrong? I wish we had more time. I wish we had just one more conversation. I miss you. I missed you before I even knew you were gone. I know I had told you for years how much I loved you, but know this now, I love you, Lee. You were an amazing friend, Thank you, a million times over, thank you for it all. All our talks, memories, secrets are kept tied up in the most precious bow. I miss you, more than I could ever say. My Love Always and Forever, Jen

  7. Dear Fulcher Family: Please accept my deepest sympathies on the loss of your beloved. There are never any right words to express how deeply sad I am for the pain your family is enduring at this difficult time. Although I did not have the honor and pleasure of knowing him, as Chair of the Senate Committee on Veteran Affairs and Military Installations, I am sincerely thankful for his valiant service in defense of our rights and freedom. His commitment to family, friends, our community, and to serving our great nation leaves a wonderful legacy. May the love and the wonderful memories you shared with him help you when you need it most. He will never be forgotten, and your family will be remembered in my prayers.

  8. I wish I could have done more for you dear brother. I miss you every day and guess I always will. You were a good brother most of the time! Wait for me…. Sis

  9. I miss you bro, I miss our conversations and your stubborn ways. I am glad you feel no pain or anguish any longer. I miss you! There is nothing else I can say.

  10. The news of Leray’s death came as quite a shock. It was only in 2009 that we had ‘found’ Leray and brought him back to our flock. Leray and I remained in contact via Email and he was looking forward to reconnecting with old friends and attending our next reunion (2011). I’m very sad that this will not happen.

    On behalf of the Madrid High School, Class of ’61, we extend our deepest condolences to his family and friends.

    Leray will be recognized on the Honor Roll list of the Madrid/Torrejon High School Association. Please know that we shall remember him and are truly sorry for the family’s loss.

    Penny Ford-Bezdikian Co-Coordinator, MHS Class of ’61

  11. Its taken me over a year to right this, I think back to all the good times we had as I grew up, and those are what I want to remember now. I really wish I was not as stubborn as you, because I would have forced you to get help when you did not want it.. I really wish you did get to meet your granddaughter, she is something very special. i love you daddy and i always will

  12. Even though he was not a blood relative of mine, “Uncle Lee” was one of the nicest and kindest men I have ever met. For a few years I had hoped that I would bump into him at the grocery store or one of the many bowling alley’s just so we could catch up on where life had taken us. All my best to his family. I’ll miss you Uncle Lee.
