He went to SAC now known as Angelo State University and Sul Ross State University. He moved to Dallas and Austin for a short time before starting his ranching career. Arnie Lee was very successful with his horses and they were his one of his life’s passions. Arnie Lee was a very caring and compassionate person and would give the shirt off his back to help someone. Arnie Lee loved going to new places and meeting new people. He had the amazing ability to walk into a room and make friends with everyone. He was a favorite Uncle, brother, nephew, and cousin to many, all whom loved him dearly for his warm smile and fun nature. Arnie Lee continued to be a warm and loving person who maintained his friendships with many wonderful friends and family members throughout his life. We will miss his unique way that made you feel special and loved. He was preceded in death by his parents, Arnie and Bessie Westbrook.

We were sad to hear of Arnie Lee's passing. He was a thoughtful, caring person and a good cook. At one of his cookouts, we had a brocolli and cauliflower salad that is one of our favorite dishes. His loved ones are in our thoughts and prayers.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time. I did not have the privilege of knowing Arne for many years, but his attendance at our Westbrook (CS) family reunions was a blessing. He was a joy to know and will certainly be missed. Grace and Peace to Arne and his family.
