Lee E. Sapira

d. May 3, 2015

Lee E. Sapira, 52, of Mertztown, passed away on Sunday, May 3, 2015, at his home, surrounded by his loving family.

Lee was a respected attorney, in private practice for many years. He previously partnered with Ronald Cirba, operating the law firm of Cirba & Sapira, P.C., Exeter Twp, and began his law career with Kozloff, Diener, Payne & Fegley, Wyomissing. Lee graduated from Taylor Allderdice High School, and the University of Pittsburgh in 1986 with a B.S. in Physics. He went on to graduate Cum Laude from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law in 1989.

Lee was an avid golfer and a longtime member of Moselem Springs Golf Club, Richmond Twp. In the article published in Golf Digest entitled "How Golf Taught Me To Deal With Cancer," Lee analogized golf and cancer stating that cancer is "... a crappy lie... OK, it's deep in the trees on a root with no look at the green and a restricted backswing, but I know the more attention I pay to hitting the next shot, the better the rest of my round, my life, will be. I still laugh a lot every day." This truly embodied how Lee approached, and bravely fought, his battle with cancer.

In keeping with Lee's wishes, there will be a private Celebration of Life at the Moselem Springs Golf Club. In lieu of flowers, Lee would appreciate donations to your local animal shelter.

Walbert Funeral Home & Cremation Services, Fleetwood, PA, is honored to be entrusted with Lee's services. Online condolences may be offered at
