3 Guestbook Entries for LeRoy (Lee) Allen Chimini

  1. I had the opportunity to work and travel with Lee over a couple of years. We worked together in FHWA’s Freight Office. He helped me meet the FHWA family. Once in Arizona he talked me into a pair of cowboy boots. First i ever owned. They were comfortable as he said they would be. We lost touch over the years after retirement. I am sorry to hear that he has passed.

  2. I am sending my sincere condolences on the passing of Lee. I worked with him in the Planning Office in the late ‘80s. I am so very sorry for your loss. He was a great colleague who was always running and eating three or more pieces of fruit for lunch.

  3. My deepest condolences to Lee’s family. He was a great friend, we were colleagues in planning for a number of years, mainly when he was in HQ and I was in the field. We lost touch after he retired. I remember he loved square dancing.
