Lee was like a 2nd dad to me. He helped mold me into the man I am today. He was tough on us boys but we knew he loved us in the way he and Teena helped raise us and regularly told us how proud he was of us. He also loved on my kids like they were his own grandchildren. I feel that I’m a better man today because I was a part of their family. All those days in the hayfield and weeks spent in ranburne hunting, fishing, swimming,riding 4 wheelers and go-carts were some of the most influential moments of my life. I’m thankful to the lord to have known Lee and I’ll miss him

My heart goes out to this family. Teena May GOD comfort you during these trying times but you have been an amazing caregiver for so many years. Lee was a dear friend during my years as Pastor at Oak Bowery and helped in so many ways but never wanted anyone to know what he had done. He was an encourager to me and was always ready to listen and give a hug. Lee I love ya brother and will see you again.
