A Friend Remembered : Lee Pierucci

Ten years ago today we lost one of the good one's in Lee Pierucci. Lee and I grew up together in Wilton CT, starting off in Kindergarten > Graduation. Lee was one of those peoples you could always count on to make you laugh & was the kind of person who would drive across town to get you home after school (because your parents had taken away the car).

Now Lee might not have been the bestest athlete in school - but man did he make up for it with a blazing tenacity and unbridled will to succeed. He played Varsity baseball and football and he played it well.

They say nothings ever promised tomorrow today. So go tell a friend, family member, someone you love how much they mean to you. Lee would be proud you did.

Cheers to you pal!

Rest In Peace brother Lee. 10 years later and you are still in our hearts. Will always be.

Amen to both of those fine posts! Leroy was like a brother to me and I will aways hold a special place in my heart for him and his family.

I miss you buddy!!
