After graduation from Central High School, he enlisted in the Army. Lee married Rosalie J. Fisher on June 22nd, 1956. They purchased a farm outside of Independence where they raised three girls. Lee worked in the logging industry. Then he owned and operated a bull rental business. Lee loved hunting and the outdoors. He and the guys took several trips to the Steens mountains for some awesome hunting and memories. In his later years, he started hunting in Airlie, pointing out sights and telling stories of growing up. He went weekly to livestock sales, always had candy for the kids, and loved to tease everyone. After Rosalie’s passing in 2005, Lee married Gerie Timmons on March 10th, 2007. They continued to live at the farm, where Gerie learned all about farm life.

Lee was preceded in death by his wife Rosalie, his parents, 5 siblings, his son-in-law Lee Ingram, and his beloved dog Gizmo.
