                           HON. SCOTT McINNIS

                              of colorado

                    in the house of representatives

                          Monday, June 9, 2003

  Mr. McINNIS. Mr. Speaker, it is with profound sadness that I take 
this opportunity to pay tribute to the life and memory of a veteran 
from my state, Lee M. Ancell, Sr. Lee passed away recently at the age 
of 88. As his family mourns their loss, I would like to take this 
moment to pay tribute to his life and accomplishments here today.
  Lee was a part of what many call the ``greatest generation,'' and 
when the United States entered World War II, he dutifully answered his 
nations call by enlisting in the Army Air Corp. After his discharge, 
Lee returned to marry Margaret Galloway. Lee and Margaret lived a long 
life together, as their marriage spanned 53 years. After moving to 
Cortez, Colorado, Lee became involved in a number of groups and 
organizations. He enjoyed membership in groups like the National Rifle 
Association, the VFW, and the National Water Well Drillers Association. 
He was also a respected leader of the 4-H Club. Lee spent his free time 
engaging in a variety of activities, including welding, hunting, 
fishing, and playing the guitar. A family man, Lee is survived by three 
children, six grandchildren, and one great grandchild.
  Mr. Speaker, I am honored to stand before this Congress and this 
nation to pay tribute to the life and legacy of Lee Ancell, Sr. Lee was 
a solid contributor to his community and his nation, and I am grateful 
for his service. My thoughts and prayers go out to Lee's family and 
friends.
