    Lee Carmichael

    I received this message earlier..... those of us who have been around APUG for a while are very familiar with Lee. He was such a great guy and will be sorely missed.

    It is with great sadness that I pass along to all of you the news of the passing yesterday morning of my friend and husband, Lee Carmichael. Lee was a loving and cherished husband, a proud and understanding father, a patient and devoted son and a true and loyal friend to many of you. He had been facing with courage and good grace the challenges of coping with his medical issues. His unexpected passing is so painful for all of us, but we find comfort in the fact that he has been spared the suffering that awaited him and that he was willing to endure in order to be here for us. His funeral arrangements should be completed today at Mt. Olivet Funeral Home in Fort Worth. We appreciate the kind words and actions of the friends and family that have contacted us upon hearing of his passing. Those gestures mean so much to those of us who are left behind to cherish his memory. Thank you - Carol, Jennifer and Jeff.

    That is profoundly sad. Lee was a very valued member of the photographic community, and I have heard nothing but wonderful things about him. May he rest in peace.

    Lee was a dedicated participant in print exchanges and a member of the APUG Member Council, and a fine photographer. I think he'll be best remembered for his cowboy portraits, and on the forum we'll remember his calm, reasoned voice. I will miss him.

    I will miss him much, althought our contact was less frequent lately, I missed chatting with him more often than I was able to do it.

    My condolences to friends and family.

    For those who, like me, weren't sure which "Lee" this refers to, I believe his APUG user name was "lee".

    He hasn't been active much recently on APUG, but I certainly remember his posts from earlier.

    A few years back I was fortunate enough to visit Texas to attend a darkroom workshop in Lee's darkroom with Les McLean. Meeting and knowing Lee has enriched my life. I will miss him.

    My goodness, what a shock. We all had such great times in the chat room and then in Fort Worth when visiting.

    My regards to his family.

    Lee....I will miss you...your gentleness, your dry sense of humour, your keen eye in photography, your love of music. Rest in peace, my friend.
