In the last couple months, Lee was diagnosed with terminal cancer which had spread beyond the point of recovery, and on Thursday morning, Lee passed away peacefully at Agrace Hospice Care in Janesville, Wisconsin. It was two days after his 64th birthday. He is survived by his sons Brandon and Ryan.
When Lee passed, he had no life insurance established or any money set aside for the family, and as of now, the cost falls entirely on their shoulders.
What we are asking of all of you now is to help the Ekleberry family in their time of need, as they wish to lay Lee to rest in the fashion that he so deserves. Leading up to his final stay at Agrace, Brandon exhausted countless resources and had to undergo financial strain to bring his father home, as he so wished, and now, we are asking all of you who know Brandon, the Ekleberry family, or are moved by this amazing family, to contribute anything that they can to ensure that Lee can be honored and laid to rest how he truly deserves to be. Your contributions will go entirely to helping the cost of a proper visitation and burial for a great man. A man who would give you a dollar if it was the last one he had. Please, help us take care of this generous, giving family in their time of need. I love you all!
