Mr. Ray Lee, 80, died on Wednesday, March 25, 2020 at his residence.   

He was born on July 12, 1939 to the late Robert E. Lee and Louis Beaube Lee.

Preceding him in death were his parents, a sister Zeda L. Wade (Darrell), a son in law Michael L. Smith, a grandson Nathan Allen Johnson and a niece Terri Wade. 

Mr. Lee’s pride and joy was his family and grandchildren.  Those left to cherish his memory include his wife of 54 years, Helen P. Lee; daughter Shelia Lee-Smith; son Robert E. Lee (Debbie); daughter Stacey L. Hodges (Charlie); daughter Stephanie L. Johnson (Allen); and daughter Sandra L. Keen (Chris).

He is also survived by nine (9) grandchildren; Whitney Smith, Michael R.

Also left to cherish his memory are his beloved cousins Paul and Betty Lee Odom and extended family.

He was a U.S. Navy veteran serving during peacetime between 1958-1964. He loved gardening, construction projects, and most recently truck driving.  He founded SDL Enterprises, Inc., the family trucking business.  He worked in many professions during his lifetime including civil service, landscaping, dairy manager, convenience store owner, construction, and he was truly a jack of all trades. 

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in Mr. Lee’s honor to the American Lung Association.
