2016.01.23 Lee Van Leer - 1943 to 2016

Last updated: None
D'Arcy and I just heard of the passing of John Feeny a.k.a. Lee Van Leer. Lee was not answering his phones for some time so D'Arcy decided to call the police and ask for an "elder check". The police called us back to say Lee passed away in his apartment. We think he passed away on Jan 11.

Lee Van Leer was well know in the music world. Everyone who knew him liked him. In Lee Van Lee's younger years he was in the group called The Sparrow that later went on to be Steppenwolf. He was in many bands over the years including some that D'Arcy was in.

Lee Van Leer had a weekly jam every Sunday at the offices of Your Ward News. D'Arcy is planning on carrying on the jam.

Lee Van Leer you will be missed.
