Lee Terry Chandler

October 9, 1956 — April 16, 2023

Our friend, Lee, passed away on April 16 after an extended illness. A native of Kentucky, Lee captivated all who came into his orbit with his southern charm and wit. After a stint with Indiana Bell, Lee transferred to San Francisco in 1980 and quickly established a wild menagerie of friends, lovers, and others. He loved TCM, Patsy Cline, fried pickles, and his longtime canine companion, Mooney Loretta. During his illness, his partner, Matt, was a constant by his side. So here's to you, Lee. Let's hope we can all blow bubbles together someday.
