Mr. Lee was born August 20, 1916 in Josserand, Texas and passed away Wednesday June 17, 2009 in Lufkin, Texas.
He was affiliated with the Hwy 94 Church of Christ, a rancher. He was a farmer most of his lifetime; his home was always open to anyone that wished to stop by for a visit or a meal, and a very caring and giving person. He wasn’t rich by the world’s standard but was rich a million times in blessings. He loved to fish and hunt and loved the outdoors, where he could view God’s creation in nature and spend time in solitude with his creator. He will be missed but has gone to a far greater place.
He is preceded in death by his wife Ethel Richardson Lee; daughter Edna; parents James (Bud) Lee and Ruth Lee Upchurch.
Pallbearers were Harvey Terry, Paul Moore, Rick Rasbeary, Craig Parten, Johnathan Horan, and Jordon JaMail. Honorary pallbearers were Wyatt Moore, Ryan Rasbeary, Colton Parten, and Andy Horan.
