Lee Abel, Sr. Accountant

Lee is one of those multi-talented people that can succeed at anything he puts his mind to. Although he has a mathematical, accounting mind, he is also a gifted artist. Over the years, Lee has created many different styles of artwork for his home and for others, including paintings to sculptures. Even his yard is a work of art!

Lee also spends many hours on his Kawasaki Vulcan Nomad 1500, motorcycling through Alberta and Saskatchewan with his friends. He is known for his skills as a fisherman and winemaker. Lee has kept busy this year renovating his home, and of course, doing it all himself. He can be very proud of his new hardwood floors, tiled entrance and painted cupboards, walls and trim.

Lee has been with Wilde & Company since 1962 to present, with a 5 year break from ’67 to ’72 when he worked in Calgary at Montreal Trust. His professional specialties include agricultural tax, estate work and preparing financial statement and consulting for small business owners. He has also been involved with municipal audit over the years. Lee keeps his knowledge base current through professional development courses including the Ag Tax Update each year.

Lee is respected as a trusted advisor for many of his long-term clients and can be counted on to do his work accurately and expediently. He reassures us and his clients that ‘he’ll be around for awhile!’.

“Don’t procrastinate, it just makes it worse! Get it done early!”
