Lee Gardner, 88

Lee Gardner played his last chukka Oct. 22, 2022. He lived a full 88 years, leaving behind his wife, Polly, and four beautiful daughters.

He was an animal lover, bird lover, a botanist, biologist, Quantum physics enthusiast, philosopher, deep thinker and so much more. His character was always full of astonishing humor, always well timed and always met with laughter. We sure do miss him!

Donations in his memory may be made to: Norman Bird Sanctuary, 383 Third Beach Road, Middletown, RI 02842, or S. Coast VNA, Attn. Hospice Dept., 200 Mill Road, Fairhaven, MA 02719.

Jim McGaw

A lifelong Portsmouth resident, Jim graduated from Portsmouth High School in 1982 and earned a journalism degree from the University of Rhode Island in 1986. He's worked two different stints at East Bay Newspapers, for a total of 18 years with the company so far. When not running all over town bringing you the news from Portsmouth, Jim listens to lots and lots and lots of music, watches obscure silent films from the '20s and usually has three books going at once. He also loves to cook crazy New Orleans dishes for his wife of 25 years, Michelle, and their two sons, Jake and Max.
