Lee Paul Pisarski

Lee Paul Pisarski, 68, passed away on April 8, 2023, at UNC Chapel Hill Medical Center, with a couple of close friends and the love of his life, Bonnie, at his side.

Lee met Bonnie playing in an Advertising Softball League soon after he moved from Michigan to California.  They have been married for 37 years.  Lee was a creative spirit, fun-loving friend and partner.

He appreciated his Pinehurst friends, loved his golfing buddies and enjoyed playing in many golf groups: MGA, Ham & Eggs, Dirty Dozen and Sunday Couples.  He was an avid golfer, a Porsche connoisseur, and handyman who could build or repair anything with his extensive  collection of tools.

An affectionate nod to “Lee-isms” that family and friends will recognize with a smile and a laugh: “So Bon”,  “Atta-Girl”, “better to be lucky than good!”, “D.Q.’em Lee!”, and the infamous, infused with infectious humor, “Dawghouse Lee!”


Lee will be dearly missed by so many, from the east to the west.  May the memories and stories of Lee bring much laughter to the hearts of those who were lucky to have known him.


Lee is survived by his wife, his mother, his younger brother and sister and their families.


In lieu of flowers, Lee’s family asks you to consider making a contribution to your favorite charity in his memory.


Fry & Prickett Funeral Home is honored to care for the Pisarski family.

Memories Timeline


  1. I had the great pleasure of working and playing with Lee for 20 years in Los Angeles. He was fun to be around and a damn good retoucher. Lee and his stable of artists always made my work shine. I’m so saddened by the news of his passing but happy in the knowledge that Lee lived life to the fullest. My heart goes out to Bonnie and all his family.

  2. I met Lee and Bonnie in the 80s. I was blessed to enjoy their company over the years at the beach and up in the mountains of Big Bear. Lee was always such a fine and wonderful and lively spirit, full of good cheer and love.
    I send my deepest condolences to Bonnie and his family for their loss.

  3. To Bonnie and family: Bob and I send our heartfelt condolences. We are left with fond memories of golfing, partying for many decades in sunny California. We are so saddened to hear about Lee having left this world way too early. Hugs and lvoe to Bonnie from Bob and Astrid

  4. I’m very sorry to hear of Lee’s passing. I’ve missed seeing him at Industry and at the December Pebble Beach tournament.

  5. So sorry to lose a long time great friend. I am very thankful that he was my daughter’s Godfather. Lee was always a happy guy ! He was the kind of guy that you love to be around! May he rest in peace. Bonnie The Davis family are thinking of you. ❤️

  6. Lee will be surely missed. He was such a great person to be around. And who can forget the Lee’ism’s: That A Girl, Then there’s that. Classics. Rest In Peace my friend. Bonnie, my prayers are with you and I”m here for you. ❤️

  7. Even as kids growing up in metro Detroit my cousin Lee was a joy to be around….always smiling, fiddling with his guitar, loving life. Unlike many, Lee seemed to love life. Living it to the fullest (much like his mother Suzie). Always a welcoming smile and laugh. That’s Lee. He will be missed.

  8. Bonnie, I just happened upon this shocking news on FaceBook. I want to express the condolences for myself and all the many racquetball friends that Lee had over the years who are likewise heartbroken. We enjoyed so many laughs over the course of thousands of hours and decades of years at the gym. He was often singing your praises about this or that. He was very proud of you and a happily married man.

    You have my deepest sympathies. God bless.

  9. We are so sad to hear of Lee’s passing. From our friendship in Detroit to Los Angeles and going to the cabin in Big Bear there was never a dull moment. Our hearts go out to Bonnie and family but know Lee was a one of a kind guy. His sense of humor was amazing and so accepting of everyone. Lee was an incredibly talented artist which is how we first met. I will miss his bigger than life laugh…distinctively Lee.
    We will miss you Lee (love you Bonnie)
