Condolence: Our lives certainly will never be the same without our funny uncle! Uncle Lee could always make me laugh, whether it was to keep me from being scared, or to cheer me up when I was sad or just because- I never saw him without a smile and he could always put one on my face! I have so many fond memories of spending time with him over the years. He was also the first member of my extended family to meet my daughter when she was born- driving up to Cleveland from Columbus with Aunt Kathy when we were in the hospital. I will miss him so much and will continue to tell stories of him to my children. We are sending our love to Aunt Kathy, Ben, Erin and your families and wish we could be together to celebrate the wonderful life of this amazing man.
Condolence From: Robert & Billie Sorenson, Westerville, OH
Condolence: We are thinking of the entire Kemp family and wishing you strength and comfort in the days ahead.
So very sorry for your loss,

Condolence: Such fond memories of my best golfing buddy. In our hay day we would be the first group out every Friday, often hitting into the rising sun. "Did you see my ball?" "Nope!" <insert laughter> From the day I came into his extended family, I could always count on hearing a joke, followed by his infectious, smirking grin and then laughter as he couldn't contain himself. He just made you laugh and want to be around him. Always self-deprecating, always there to serve you and your needs. I will never forget you, Lee.
Condolence From: Pat Archer, Westerville, Ohio
Condolence: I am in shock and so saddened for you all. What a character he was for sure. My favorite memory of him is the Valentine's Day that he and Noah brought donuts into the office and were taking them around to other locations as well. Wishing comfort and peace in the days ahead for you all.
Condolence From: The Lakas' The Lucente's, Westerville, OH

I remember Lee as the handsome boyfriend who always made time for the younger kids in the neighborhood, and as a wonderful father and husband through the years. Tami often shared stories of how Lee added so much fun and humor to family get togethers, and how much he was loved by everyone. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
Condolence From: Tami Kuhlmann, Hilton Head Island, SC
Condolence: Our hearts are broken and full for you. Lee will remain in our hearts and memories with his wonderful sense of humor, and his big generous way of just being Lee Kemp, making us all feel loved and happy. He lived a full life, and will be remembered and missed by everyone who was lucky enough to know him. Always funny and uplifting, just the thought of Lee brings a smile to me.
Condolence From: Mallory Kuchem, Arlington, VA
Condolence: I wish we could all be together so I could give my Aunt Kathy and cousins Erin and Ben a big hug...and all of us cousins could share wonderful memories of our beloved Uncle Lee. I feel so lucky to have grown up with him in my life...teaching me all sorts of questionable lessons! He was, quite simply, the most amazing uncle and I cannot begin to express my fondness for him. You will be missed so much, Uncle Lee. We love you.
