Lea was known best for his witticisms. He was happiest entertaining friends and family with stories and jokes, and his quick quips and puns were legendary. In his spare time he loved to tinker and build and after he retired from John Brown University in Siloam Spring, AR. Lea spent many happy hours remodeling homes anil refurbishing vintage sport cars. He firmly believed that every house needed a sun room and back porch and built innumerable versions across the county over the years, routinely adding them to every home he occupied. He was especially proud of his final car project a 1986 Alfa Romeo that he restored with the help of a friend. The car is now cherished by his daughter. In accordance with Leas wishes, no services will be held. His remains will be cremated and his ashes buried near Tucson, AZ alongside those of his deceased wife. The family request that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Leon Millsap Senior Activity Center, Danville, AR where he and his beloved wife Modean spent many happy hours sharing meals, road trips and card Games with their friends. And in loving memory of Lea, share a joke and laugh out loud.
