This is the Lee Buske that I remember. The saying below the picture proved to be very true. We were friends through most of high school getting in out of mischief most of time. We double dated many times after I got my drivers license. A good time was had by all and many a good memories were made. From my family to yours our condolences go out to you. May he rest in peace and may the Peace of God go with you all. Amen

Joy Berner on May 19, 2017

As a current Department of Revenue employee who joined the Madison Equalization District office in 2007, I was trained, in part, by Lee. To this day, I occasionally come across some of his work in historical files and am reminded how diligent he was in his work. Particularly, I appreciate his exacting commercial sketches which were done by hand, prior to computerized sketching.
My sympathy to his family and close friends.
