John T. Fee, 101, passed peacefully to his heavenly home on January 1, 2021, in the presence of his family, one day after celebrating his 74th wedding anniversary. John was born on September 17, 1919, in Texarkana, Texas, to John T. Fee Sr. and Ophelia Fee. John served in Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal Program CCC camp, followed by service in the Arkansas National Guard, which then became a part of the Army. John served in the 142nd Field Artillery during World War II, taking part in D-Day operations and the Battle of the Bulge. When WWII ended, he was honorably discharged.

On December 31, 1946, he and Lois Skinner were married. In 1949, they moved to Grand Prairie, Texas, to work for Chance Vought Aircraft (later LTV). He worked 32 ½ years in Protective Services. He retired in 1981, where he spent many happy years doing things he loved such as fishing, hunting, camping, traveling, volunteering for the Red Cross, Masonic Scottish Rite Drives, Square Dancing, and much more. He was a Deacon in Fairview Baptist Church in Grand Prairie, serving in many capacities as long as he was able.

He is predeceased by his parents John Fee Sr. and Ophelia Fee; brothers William Fee and Chester Fee; sisters Cordie Ellinburg, Berdie DeLay, Nettie Lee Rilling, and LaTrella Elliott.

He is survived by his wife Lois Fee; son John H. Fee (Pam); daughters, Marla Bull (David), and Rosie Newell (John); grandchildren Rachel Gralapp (Daniel), Isaac Fee (Rachel), Matthew Newell, and Brandon Newell; great grandchildren Hannah Gralapp, Zachary Gralapp, Wesley Fee, and Will Fee, and many nieces, and nephews.

We will all miss him so much, but will rejoice in knowing he is with his Savior. We are all very thankful to have had him in our lives, and will never forget him.

Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at for the Fee family.

Lois, Marla, Rosie, John and extended family - I am so sorry to hear of the loss of sweet JT. I was honored to know him and to share a special friendship with Lois for over 35 years. I always love hearing Lois speak of JT and think how wonderful it would be if more people in the world could find a lifelong love that is strong enough to endure all of life's trials. I can't think of two more wonderful people and grieve for your loss as I know how much you all loved him, and how special you all were to him. Take solace in knowing he rests in peace now, and that one day we'll all be reunited. It has been my privilege to witness the love your family is special indeed.

John will be so missed I am sure as I only knew of a few of his talents when I first met him when I worked with Lois at LTV and she told me about him. At that time I believe it was something about raising minks (I think). An unbelievable man that God will bless when they meet..

It was a tremendous honor to know and get to know Mr. Fee over the past 13 years. To this day I still remember the first time that I meet him, in Sept of 2007. He looked me right in the eyes and said, "I am glad you are here and know you will do a great job young man." Every day following that John was a great source of encouragement to me as the pastor of Fairview Baptist Church. He was like a grandfather to my two boys. Heaven received a wonderful man.
