Lee Strawn, who will turn 100 in March, stands in his basement workshop while talking about his life during an interview at his home on Wednesday in Akron. Strawn, who is a recent winner of Akron's Charles Salem Award, is a long-time volunteer at Good Neighbors Food Center, routinely helps his neighbors with snow removal and mowing and donates many of his woodworking projects.
