William Ennis Lee Jr.
Bill was born on June 2, 1954, to Dick and Leona Lee. He graduated from Andrews High School, Andrews, TX in 1972. After serving four years in the Air Force, Bill relocated to Washington State where he met his wife, Lauri, who he married on July 21, 1979.
Bill and Lauri have lived on Camano Island for 27 years where they raised their three sons and started his business, Lee Enterprises. Prior to starting his business, he worked at Camano Mold and in several fabrication and machine shops in the Puget Sound area.
Bill had many passions and dreams, from playing "Santa" for family and friends to his dream of sailing around the world on a boat that he built, but where he found real Joy was in serving the Lord. He will be remembered for his many years of working with the youth at Camano Chapel, driving boat at "Summer Breeze", and participating in many mission projects as the "Fix-It Guy". Many of his fabrication skills have been used to help his community. He loved his family and was a devoted husband, dad, and very proud papa.
