May 15, 1931 — August 6, 2021

Leonard (Lee) Hartgrave (born Maddaleni), native of Chicago, passed away August 6, 2021 at the age of 90. Lee was a longtime resident of the Fox Plaza. He was a theater critic for several small publications. Lee apparently had dementia, which robbed him of his mind. His sharp wicked humor is missed by his longtime neighbor and friend, Jerry Royer.
