Robert (Bobby) Lee "The King" went to heaven on February 3, 2013 at the age of 62. He was born on September 4, 1950 in Marysville, CA to Robert and Beverly Lee.
He attended Marysville High School and then he served in the U.S. Air Force and was stationed in London, England for 4 years. Bobby returned home to attend Yuba College where he played baseball and earned an AA degree. He was currently employed by PG&E.
Bobby loved people. When he entered a room, it lit up and his laughter was contagious. His hugs and huge heart will be greatly missed.
Bobby touched so many lives and he loved the town of Marysville. He coached every level of Little League and he also coached baseball at Yuba College. He loved the game of baseball. The life lessons he taught through coaching will live on through all the players he touched. Bobby also enjoyed riding his horses and he loved his cowboy friends.
Bobby was a proud and honorable man and his greatest accomplishment in life was his family. He loved deep and created family ties that can never be broken.
Bobby is survived by his wife of 43 years, Kathy. She was the love of his life. He is also survived by two sons, Ra Lee (Alicia), Tony Lee and his daughter, Michelle Lee Clavelle (Maurice), but most of all, he is survived by his pride and joy; his six grandchildren, Marissa, Cassidy, Hannah, and Kallie Clavelle, and Robbie and Jaycee Lee. He is also survived by his mother, Beverly Terrell and a brother, Mike Lee (Denise) and nephews Ryan and Michael Lee.
In lieu of flowers, a MHS Softball/Baseball Scholarship fund is set up at Rabobank in Marysville. A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 9, at the Marysville Elks Lodge.
