June 5, 1941 – March 20, 2020

AUBURN — Leland “Lee” Fred Herzog, Auburn, died Friday, March 20, 2020, at his home, surrounded by his family and kept comfortable by Midland Hospice Care. He was 78.

He loved singing with his karaoke group and was a great singer, even though he did not think so. He always had a lot of fun at the Plumber Donut Morning Group, where their meetings were good therapy for all.
