Lee was a guy who married a friend of mine some years ago. They got divorced and I only saw him a couple of times after that.
He developed a malignant brain tumour which was removed about nine months ago. Unfortunately, it reappeared and with it he lost the power of speech and the use of one side of his body.
After his second dose of chemotherapy he caught a cold, but he and his immune system were too weak to fight it off. He died Thursday 3rd November, 2005.
Take it easy Lee, mate - I’ll never forget that time you sang “Here I Go Again” in that competition, nor will I forget the trousers you were wearing at the time … ;^)
