HE WAS ONE-OF-A-KIND

Colyer recalled how much Lee was beloved by many, not only friends and family, but also a countless number of fans that adored him and cheered for him. He added:

"Puppet has put smiles on people's faces across the world with his hardcore attitude and lifestyle. He is a legend in the art of Midget Wrestling."

Aside from pleading people to donate what they can, Colyer also asked them to keep Lee's legacy alive by sharing the memories they have of him with everyone.

Lee passed exactly one month after James "Kamala" Harris

LARGER THAN LIFE

Following the 54-year-old's passing, Colyer described Lee as a big brother to everyone he met and someone who could "cheer up even the saddest person." He said:

"When he walks in with that big ol' smile on his face, the whole room brightens up. I'm gonna miss that about him."

It has been reported that Lee started his pro wrestling career on the pay-per-view series "NWA: Total Nonstop Action" back in 2002 before creating the Half-Pint Brawlers organization, which found its way to Spike TV in 2010.

The star also had quite a few successes on the big screen, starring as himself in Johnny Knoxville's "Jackass 3D" in 2010 and working alongside James Franco in "Oz: The Great and Powerful" in 2013.
