Lee Charles Nordloh

Lee Charles Nordloh passed away unexpectedly after a brief illness on Saturday, August 30, 2019. He is survived by his loving wife of 32 years Lisa, his mother Barbara (father James Leo, deceased) and siblings Denise (David, deceased) Strasser, Diane (Steve) Gilcrest, Peggy (Bill) Stevens, Mike, Debbie (Rodger) Davis, Donna (John) Brueggemeyer, Jim (Carol) and Judy (Kevin, deceased) McCabe, Brother-in-law, John (Ashley) Sheley, along with his precious aunts, uncles and cousins. Blessed to have come from a large family, Lee found great joy in being a part of his many nieces and nephews lives; Lee Ann Strasser, Sarah and Spencer Gilcrest, Henry and Lucy Stevens, Charlie (Claire and Max) and Joey Nordloh, Rodger (Alyssa), Robbie and Reed Davis, Annie, Abby and Sam Brueggemeyer, Jimmy and Jack Nordloh, Connor McCabe, and Jacob and Emma Sheley. He continued to add to his village, building lifelong friendships that felt like family to him, including Beau (Abby) Tuke and Hunter (Crystal) Barnhill, who he considered like sons. Lee enjoyed a nearly 30 year career as the owner of Nordloh & Associates Surveying in Terrace Park and had the honor of serving as the President of the Professional Land Surveyors of Ohio. His work took him to all corners of Southwest Ohio, and he never left home without his trusty English Setters, Penny, Lady, Buster and Goldie (all deceased), and Moby and Bailey now missing their adventure partner. He fostered a lifelong fascination and love of “Planes, Trains, and Automobiles” and boats. He preferred to explore the world via American, European, and Canadian Railways, enjoying the journeys as much as the destinations. He loved to share his passion and knowledge by volunteering for many years at the United States Air Force Museum in Fairborn, Ohio. Some of his favorite afternoons were spent at Lunken Airport watching planes come and go, or at the Mid-Ohio Speedway racing his Porsche. Lee felt that he was of two hometowns, born in Cincinnati, spending summers throughout his life in Portage Point, Michigan, and eventually fulfilling his dream to own a home in both. He was in his element sailing his boat “Edelweiss” across Portage Lake and out to Lake Michigan with Lisa. Lisa, his family and friends will miss him dearly for the rest of their lives but will cherish his advice to enjoy the journey until we all meet again at the destination. A tribute of “a pleasant flight”, “start your engines”, “all aboard”, “anchors away”, and Godspeed to a husband, son, brother, uncle and treasured friend. A celebration of life will be held on Friday, September 13th from 5- 7 at Terrace Park Country Club. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to your favorite charity.

I first met Lee in 1978 when I became the Fiscal officer of MIlford. He was most interesting and a joy to converse with. At that time,I believe, he worked for Art Andrews engineering firm. He was a good man. Always calm with good things to say and share stories with others. He never seemed to be in a hurry nor get upset. It was always a pleasure when he came into our office. He shared time with all of us.He was very good at making everyone feel important by stopping to say hi to all of us. He was a good listener. It was sad to read of his passing. We have not seen him since my retirement at he end of 2004. My wife and I intended to attend the service upon first reading of it however a death in the family learned about the next day makes that impossible. THat layout is at the same time on the far western side of Hamilton county. Then we need to pick up our daughter at the airport. Our most sincere sympathy goes out to all members of his family for their loss. Stephen Wagner
