James Gary Lee Jr., an account executive at Advance Mortgage and Investment Co., passed away Thursday after collapsing on his way to work. He was 35 years old. Gary was the first child born into our family, the first to gift us with a grandchild and the first to leave us. He is survived by his 13-year-old son, Seth Lee; his parents, James Gary Lee and Sherry Lee; a brother, Kevin Lee; grandparents Charles and Betty Phillips of Orange Beach; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and a niece whom he loved dearly. “Family first” was Gary’s motto. A 1995 graduate of Murphy High School, Gary enjoyed fishing, hunting and the Alabama Crimson Tide. He also enjoyed spending time with his many co-workers, who may not realize they had become his extended family. Above all, he loved spending time with his best friend, his son Seth. Visitation will be held starting at 9 a.m. Tuesday with a funeral service to follow at 11 a.m., at Radney Funeral Home on Dauphin Street.
