My Story

We want to let you know that Lee left us on Tuesday, August 16 after a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was surrounded by his family. 
Thank you all once again for the many, many messages of support that have given us strength over the last few weeks.

We have migrated the contents of this website to http://www.lee-schipper.org, where you can continue to post tributes, look at pictures, and read details of the memorial for Lee as well as the Fellowship Fund set up by the Schipper family with support from EMBARQ.
