Lee Edmison Obituary
Edmison, Lee Loving father, husband, and brother, passed away at home on December 15, 2009, surrounded by family and friends. He was optimistic and strong to the end. Lee was born in Bend, Oregon on September 6, 1939, the youngest of nine children. He graduated from Bend High school in 1957. Within two weeks Lee was off to the United States Navy, where he served proudly on the USS James E Kyes as a Radar Control Technician until 1960. He used the skills and knowledge gained during this time to become a Field Service Engineer for Boeing where he worked for 37 years until his retirement in 2007. He moved to Garland, Texas in 1962, where he was an active community member, including Indian Guides, coaching little league, and was even voted the Kiwanis Club Man of the year in 1971. He was an avid hunter and fisherman, both on land and sea. He looked forward to his yearly deep sea fishing and hunting trips with his son and friends. Very little made Lee happier than being outdoors. After his retirement, Lee spent his time pursuing his own interests including donating his time to Habitat For Humanity, remodeling old homes, and refinishing old furniture. He loved to work with his hands, and took great pleasure in sharing his skill with others. Everyone who knew Lee loved him and he will be dearly missed. His smile was contagious, his jokes endless, and his positive attitude was motivating to anyone who encountered him. He was a noble man who never uttered a critical word about his fellow man. Lee was proceeded in death by his parents, Lester and Elizabeth Edmison, his two sisters, Maude and Daisy, and his brother Dexter. He is survived by his wife of 47 years, Radonna, and their son Russ, sisters Ella Edmison, Pat Gammond, Mary Farley, and Jean Edmison, and his twin brother Bill, and a host of nieces and nephews. Services to be held at 10:00 a.m. Friday December 18, 2009 at the Restland memorial chapel with visitation starting at 9:00a.m. Interment to follow at Restland Memorial park. The service will be conducted by Reverend James Bond, a long time family friend.
