Lee was born January 7, 1943 in Shreveport, LA to Royce and Tessie Stanley. He graduated from Woodlawn High School. He then served in the United States Army for 2 years during the Vietnam War. He was a military policeman and was stationed in France. Lee started his career with the Shreveport Fire Department in 1967. He was proud to serve as a firefighter. He loved the job and enjoyed the camaraderie with his fellow firefighters. He retired after 28 years having attained the rank of District Chief. He was also a skilled carpenter, and he felt a sense of pride in the work he did constructing houses. He loved hot rods and the great outdoors and was happiest when sitting in a deer stand or fishing on Toledo Bend. He was a devoted husband, father and grandfather.

Lee was preceded in death by his parents and sisters Jaynell Lazarus, Wanda Giddens and her husband Tommy Giddens. He is survived by his wife of 23 years, Nena Diane Stanley; son Stephen Stanley and wife Jodie; daughters Sheryl Foster and husband John, and Shannon Shoalmire and husband Brent; brothers Reggie Stanley and wife Rachel, Arthur Stanley and wife Belinda; sisters Martha Flanagan and husband Harold, Fannie Morris and husband Chuck, Peggy King and Ashley Stanley. He is also survived by 9 grandchildren: Caroline Stanley, Elisabeth Stanley and John Stanley; Joshua Foster, and Caleb Foster; and Lauren Shoalmire, Lydia Shoalmire, Luke Shoalmire, and Lacey Shoalmire; numerous nieces and nephews and other beloved family members and friends.

Honoring Lee as pallbearers will be Shreveport Firefighters past and present. Honorary pallbearers will be James Pope, Steven Thomas, Bobby Cannon, Jerrel Neel and Tony Farley.

The family wishes to thank Amedisys Hospice for the care they gave Lee, especially Allison who went above and beyond for Lee and his family.

A Letter from Heaven- When tomorrow starts with me, and I’m not here to see. If the sun should rise and find your eyes, filled with tears for me, I wish so much you wouldn’t cry, the way you did today, while thinking of the many things we didn’t get to say. I know how much you love me, as much as I love you, and each time you think of me, I know you’ll miss me too. When tomorrow starts without me, don’t think we’re far apart, for every time you think of me, I’m right there in your heart.
