Henry “Lee” Lealen Bryan Harrington

November 21, 1978 – May 12, 2015

Henry “Lee” Harrington of Montrose passed away May 12th, 2015 at St. Mary’s Hospital with his family at his side. He was 36 years old. Lee was the oldest of 6 children, born in 1978 in Montrose, Colorado.

Lee attended Montrose High School, and attended college at Greeley Community College focusing on Business Administration  . He was employed at Serv Pro as an Estimator.

Lee lived life at full speed and put a hundred percent of his energy into everything he did. For all those who knew and loved Lee they will remember his outrageous sense of humor. He would light up a room with laughter that would brighten any situation. It was impossible to not have your spirits lifted in his presence. Lee had the uncanny ability to know when someone was down and use his humor to not only brighten their day, but make them feel special. He did not know a stranger as evidenced in the multitude of friends he had the privilege to know in his lifetime.

Lee had a love of movies of all kinds and frequently quoted lines from his favorites. Lee had a great appreciation  for music and was a self taught bass player. He loved playing his bass in mini jam sessions with his dad, Mike. He had an amazing memory and no one was a match for him with movie or music trivia. You could always find Lee at one of the local parks playing disc golf with friends and family, it was his favorite hobby. Lee had a ferocious appetite and he loved anything his mom Leanna would cook for him, especially deviled eggs. He enjoyed community involvement and made many friends while participating in local events.

The greatest love of Lee’s life was his daughter Ashlee whom he called “Monkey”. They shared a bond that cannot be put into mere words and his love for her was immeasurable. He was a dedicated, exceptional father, he lived his life for Ashlee. She was truly his whole world, his happiness.

Lee is survived by his daughter Ashlee Leanne Harrington. His parents Henry Michael and Leanna Harrington of Montrose; Grandmother Mary Jane Summers; brothers Christopher (Brandy) Harrington of Montrose; Cody (Bonnet) Harrington of Montrose; Eric (Jeanette) Kahle, Fort Carson, Co; sisters Amber (Cody) Gustin of Montrose; and  Shayla Angell of Colorado Springs; and his ex wife Amy Berger of Cedaredge.
