Joe was the go-to resource for the photographic history of Augusta. He supplied never-seen photos of Henry Shultz's Augusta Bridge. Joe sent all sorts of material about W. H. Goodrich, a 19th century Augusta builder, showing where the Goodrich sash and millwork factory was located  - at the lobby of today's Marriott Hotel. He included an analysis of changes in Augusta's street numbering system. He was encouraging and helpful to anyone interested in matters historical, and he gave his then-and-now talks to any group that asked. Of course his Arcadia postcard book stands on hundreds if not thousands of shelves in Augusta. Joe was truly one of the good guys. I hope his carefully indexed collection will find a good home at the Augusta Museum of History or the Genealogical Society.

It was my great privilege and pleasure to get to know Jodie Lee a little bit thru the Methodist Church "Over 55 Club" where he always was a fixture, always handled bringing the chicken or other major dish for the buffet, and kept the financial records for the club.  But when he found out my passion for flying, and shared with me his, we really hit it off.  His stories of the air fields in Augusta, particularly during World War II, were amazing to hear.  This gentleman really epitomized the definition of the word - gentleman.  Though he will be missed, he will always be treasured.

What a nice friend! I will never forget Jodie and his abundant kindness towards everyone. We went to school together, and flew together and he was always fun to be around. I will miss the many times he came to my studio where he would enjoy looking at old historic photos.Goodbye good friend, you made this world a better place.
