Condolences

Condolence From: Trudy and Valerie Walker
Condolence: Dear Brother Fink's Family ,
We are deeply sorry for your loss . And at the same time appreciate sharing the Wonderful Brother Fink. One of His greatest gifts was Crawing in through Mom's ( Trudy's ) window to open her front door for the ambulance while I ( Valerie ) was out of town. His kind & secure voice on the phone assuring that He would stay with Her was another Great gift. May Jehovah continue to comfort All of You .

Love ,
Trudy & Valerie & John -Michael Walker

Condolence: Mr. Fink was the coolest band director on the eastern shore. When we went to parades or competitions we could count on him to wear those cool sunglasses. We were proud of him, we loved him and we wanted to do our best for him. He added a very special dynamic to the educational program at WHS. One special memory that I had with Mr. Fink was when he borrowed my saxophone one day when he forgot his own. He told me that it had the finest sound of any he had ever played. I was totally honored that he played my horn. He was a god to many of us we would have drank from his cup or eaten from his plate if we could. He belonged to us and we belonged to him. When he had to leave us we were heart-broken and we gave his replacement grief unfortunately. Noone will ever replace the incalculable contribution that Mr. Fink had given to WHS and the Somerset County music program. He had"The Gift" and any who heard him play or watch him teach k ew it. I am eternally greatful to have been blessed to be one of his students. The mold was broken after he was made. He is truly one of a kind. Heaven, get ready, for another great jazz man is coming! My condolences to his family who he loved and talked about all the time. One day we will all play together. WHS, YES!

Condolence From: Bill Bennett
Condolence: I first met Lee when he was hired to conduct our jazz ensemble at Salisbury University (Salisbury State College back then). He made an immediate connection to those of us in the group, and we thoroughly enjoyed working under him.

The last time I saw him was in the late 80s. We each had our bands at the White Marlin Parade in Ocean City. We were going to meet up for a Coke after the parade, but he later explained to me that he had been sidetracked by an issue with one of his students, and we never got together that day.

I was very saddened to learn of Lee's passing. My heart goes out to his family and friends, and everyone whose life he touched. He was one of the best people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.

Condolence: R.I.P. Mr. Fink. May God's grace and mercy comfort, encourage and uplift your family during this time of transition. You truly touch my life beyond measure when I was a band member at Washington High School back in the 1980s and brought out the best in me. Thank you for your encouragement, inspiration, and wisdom. You shall be sorely missed.
