Lee Allmann headed West March 21, 2017. Lee started as a SAC Nav at Mountain Home, AFB in Idaho where he met his wife Vicki. He then went to USAF Pilot Traning in the F-100 training with the 522nd TFS at Cannon AFB, NM, followed by a year with the 352nd TFS at Phan Rang in Viet Nam. From there he was stationed with the 79th Tactical Fighter Squadron at Woodbridge (Suffolk County, England) also flying the F-100. He later flew the F-111 (still with the 79th TFS) at Upper Heyford Air Base in Oxfordshire, England.
Lee’s memories were flying, “Nuclear Alert” parties, and “Tiger Days” gatherings of fighter pilots from many nations.
His wife Vicki, sons Andrew & Eric, and two grandchildren survive him. For 50 years he was an outstanding friend. If you’re nearby, toss a nickel in Lake Coeur d’Alene, where Lee spent his last 20 years.
“The winds of grace are always blowing; it is for us to raise our sails.” (by Anonymous). This was Vicki’s message of notification of Lee’s passing. She added…”Lee was in very bad health and had been at a nursing home in Sandpoint Idaho. Also, as an aside, he loved the Intake magazine.”
