Leo Joseph Horgan, 68, Topeka, passed away Mon., March 19, 2012 at his home. Lee battled leukemia for nine years and for the last nine months suffered with the cancer, mesothelioma.

He served on the USS Coral Sea and in Vietnam. On July 7, 1971, Lee was united in marriage to Joyce Rush. She preceded him in death. He retired from Goodyear Tire after 34 years on the job. He was a member of Mother Teresa of Calcutta Catholic Church, the American Legion, Post 400 and VFW, 1650. Lee enjoyed hunting and fishing, but his greatest enjoyment was his country music.
