    I worked as a secretary for Leon Stamp Jr. For 17 years and my last memory is him walking out the office front door going to the hospital on July 1, 2015. We never realized he would not come back. Leon was a character for sure. He had his funny moments, his sincere moments & more. He was one of a kind.. He was also great in the courtroom, wrote amazing legal artices for legal / technology seminars & for “The Bulliten” & he also helped start WABB radio station in Mobike, AL years ago as the “song & dance man”. He loved life & lived it to the fullest. Many people will miss him.

    Today, April 4, 2016, I received a letter that told me Lee had died. I live in Salt Lake City, Utah. I was the Number One Fan of The Incredible Lee Stamp when he was at WABB FM. I loved the music he liked to play, I loved his way and his wonderful, unforgettable voice. Those were wonderful days. I moved far away and have lived in many different places, but I always remembered his birthday on March 15th. I sent cards, flowers one year, and flew from Salt Lake City to Mobile to see him one time. I’m glad I had a chance to do that. I remember the days when he slept on his office floor.
    Before his death, I wrote a tribute to him as his fan, even after over thirty years had come and gone. I’m happy he had a chance to read it, and to know how well he was thought of and respected in so many ways. The last time I heard from him last year, he told me he had health problems. My thoughts often turn back in time, and back to Alabama and Lee. Songs remind me of him. Today, I’ve hardly stopped crying.
    Here is the first lines of my tribute.

    The Incredible Lee Stamp

    Cold as an Alabama legal statute
    Warm as a soft Gulf of Mexico breeze
    Hot as Hendrix on guitar
    If he had nothing but his voice
    He would still have me
    Forever..
