It was a sad moment when the BVWNA Board received the word that Lee Ellershaw had passed. Lee had been a board member of the BVWNA for over eight years and worked hard to make our neighborhood association successful. When we found out Lee had passed after fighting COVID, we were stunned as he had always been so active and engaged. We shared happy stories and memories about him. He had made many friends in our neighborhood, was known for helping others, and loved his little dog Pedro. Lee was a very good man with a big heart, great stories, and was a wonderful neighbor who truly cared about people. Our hearts go out to Sharon. We will miss Lee very much.
