Lectoy, a father to us! When he drove in front of Ruth Street, with his family, our lives changed forever. Lec, as we called him, was fun,spiritual, athletic, brilliant, stellar physician, & a great role model He would drive his Fiat around the house, zooming, & taught us about Barney Oldfield, among other things. "Can You Hack It" was an expression he used to strengthen us. He is with Helen and we mourn with you. We love you always, Chip/Lynn and family.
