Lee’s life was marked by remarkable achievements in various career fields, spanning from his early days on a Tennessee dairy farm to becoming an electrical engineer after graduating from the University of Tennessee and then venturing into other careers.

A devout Christian, Lee’s faith was a cornerstone of his life. He dedicated his life to building relationships, helping others, and keeping God at the center of everything.

Lee’s legacy lives on through his family, friends, associates and the lives he touched. He will be profoundly missed by his wife, Billie, their children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, brothers, friends and all who had the privilege
