I worked with Grover and his son, Brian, for almost sixteen years at TXT. I will always remember Grover's humor and pearls of wisdom. Grover was always a great person to add "flavor" to a conversation. He will be missed but not forgotten. To Grover's family I offer my condolences and prayers.

I will always remember Grover Lee, many years I have known him. Lived across the street from him when we were young and then he married Mary and still lived across the street from us. I remember all 3 children being born and what good children they have grown up to be. My father, J. W. Atkinson worked at TXT with him. Grover was wild in his younger days but seem to settle down as the years went bye. Last time I saw him was at the 50th Anniversary Party. I am sad at his passing and wish Mary and the children peace in their hearts!
