[05/21/18]   We at The Sportsman want to express our sympathies and condolences to the Lege Family during this very difficult time. What started many years ago as a business relationship turned into a dear friendship with Mr Pete, Mrs Peggy, and their children. He was an amazing man and one that will be truly missed by everyone. It was a true privilege to have known him. Myself, Charles, Kathy, Randal, Leslie, and the rest of our Team at The Sportsman have appreciated our relationship with him as a friend and a valued customer. All of our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
