He was a member of several organizations including Morocco Shriners, The Scottish Rite, and Hyde Park Lodge #370. He was also a former member of the Orange Park Rotary Club. He loved golfing and boating, but his true passion was for motorcycles, which he enjoyed with his friends well into his seventies. He married Gloria Stubbs, his high school sweetheart and the love of his life, on December 26, 1964; they celebrated fifty-five years together. They have two daughters, Debra Lanier and Sandy Knafelc (Jeff). Lee, known as Papa, loved hanging out with his three grandsons Cody, Jacob, and O.Q.

The family would like to thank the staff of MD Anderson, especially Dr. John Vu, and Community Hospice for their excellent care, love, and support. Should friends desire, please make a donation to Baptist MD Anderson in lieu of flowers.
