Death of a Wicker Park Legend

- -

I was sad to hear earlier today that Gene Lee, our own Wicker Park dancing man, took his own life recently. There is a brief note on Gapers Block and an entry on his myspace blog, written by his family.

My condolences go out to his entire family, in which I am presumptuously including all of Wicker Park. Gene, we will all miss you, and I think that is a gross understatement.

For those who are unfamiliar, I wrote a myspace blog entry about Gene back in 2006.
