When we moved to Whidbey Island, Lee Kirkemo was the first person to walk across the street to welcome us and introduce himself. It was our pivilege to be neighbors with the Kirkemos. From the first, Lee was friend. In our community, he was a leader. As we learned more of his history, we saw him as a hero, a leader, a friend and a great neighbor. He was easy to like and to respect. He is greatly missed.
