Lee Raymond Fresques
July 23, 1953 – October 25, 2020
Lee Raymond Fresques was surrounded by his loving family, as they blessed him on his way to rest in eternal peace with God, on October 25, 2020. He was born on July 23rd, 1953 in Rock Springs, WY. He later ventured to Utah, New Mexico, California, Washington, Oregon, and Las Vegas, Nevada being his final resting place.
He was preceded in death by his Father Emilio Fresques, Step-Father Pablo Vigil, Brother Jerry Fresques, and Sister Emily Sanchez. He is survived by his Mom Lucinda Vigil, Siblings Emilio (Ruth) Fresques, Beverly (Jim) Farmer, Ruby Cordova, Natalie (Dennis) Montoya, Keith (Maryann) Maestas, and Paul Kelly Vigil.
He is remembered and loved by Rosemary Murillo, Joann Vigil, and Tiffany Florence from his previous marriages, his Children Marlo (Romeo) Corona, Leighann (Ivan) Fresques, Jerad (Brionne) Fresques, Cheyenne Fresques, Addison Fresques, his Grandchildren MoniqueA (Jarom) Ryan, Victoria (Alan) Franco, Armani Corona, Alissa Fresques, Eligh Fresques, his Great Grandchildren, Autumn Ryan, Bradley Franco, and many Uncles, Aunts, Cousins, Nephews and Nieces.
Lee can best be described as “The Man all the women wanted” and “The Man all the men wanted to be”. He had such a presence about him, that everyone would know when he had entered the room. He would talk to any and all, regardless of social status. He couldn’t go anywhere without being recognized or mistaken for Barry Gibb. Even those first meeting him would assume he was a celebrity himself, and in some sense he was, to us all. He sang lead vocals and played lead guitar in a band during his youth. He never shied away from an opportunity to perform and he showed us all that with his love for karaoke; Just give him a microphone, and a delighted audience would surround him. When listening to music, “loud” was the only volume level he knew; He needed to hear and feel it. Lee was the John Travolta of his time. He could strut his stuff, taught dance lessons and won a competition. You haven’t truly danced, unless you’ve been grabbed by the hand, twirled and dipped by him.
Even at 67 years old, Lee was still very athletic. He enjoyed playing basketball with his kids and grandkids, teaching them the art of Kung Fu, jogging, and instead of taking any escalators, he would charge up the stairs like Rocky Balboa. He still lifted weights and was happy to let anyone feel his arms and chest. There wasn’t a mirror he could pass without checking himself out and making sure he’s still “cool as a cucumber.” He enjoyed movies, new technology and battling on the Playstation for fun. Lee was extremely hospitable. He would never miss an opportunity to invite guests inside. He would greet them with a smile and an Oreo, then allowed them to marvel at his eye for creativity and personal touches displayed within the interior design of his home. He was meticulous when it came to cleanliness and his furniture placements were ever-changing, just to enhance the ambiance in each room.
One of Lee’s most valuable accomplishments is that he proudly lived an alcohol free life for the last 5 years. He dedicated time to becoming even closer to God, in many ways. He was very health-conscious, making fruit & veggie smoothies daily and spending much of his leisure doing outdoor activities, while soaking up the sun, or sitting around the firepit with his family.
Lee was such an inspiration to all. There wasn’t anything that he couldn’t do. He always had wise advice and encouraged others to try something new. He showed everyone the true importance of time and togetherness, and for that we are thankful. Lee always had an entertaining story to tell and he leaves a remarkable legacy to live on in the hearts of those that have had the wonderful pleasure of knowing him.
To know you is to love you, Dad. You will always be our hero.
