"Lee Mallory was a longtime California troubadour whose great lyrics and melodies flowed from his 12-string guitar like fresh spring rain inspiring wildflowers to rise from parched earth. Lee's music sounds like love. He was honored by San Francisco with Lee Mallory Day, January 10th 2005. I am grateful to have had a bit of heaven here on earth with Lee.
For all of us who loved him and his music, I want to assure you he received gentle transport from SF Fire Department and kind care at UCSF Emergency Department monday morning. He passed with grace and dignity, which he wanted very much to do, and he was in my loving hands every step of the way, which I wanted very much to do. He reached his artistic goal of completing his new album with Alex James Muscat at Last Stop Records. This pleased him very much. He expressed thanks and gratitude to this musical community, which he loved and served so well. His memory is a blessing." -Nina Jo Smith, Lee's fiancé
