Lester, Lee Allan
Jul. 14, 1948 - Mar. 19, 2013
Our loving dad, Lee Allan Lester, passed away peacefully in his sleep on March 19, 2013, after a long and heroic fight with cancer. He was born in Oskaloosa, Iowa on July 14, 1948. He was a graduate of William Penn University. He and our mother moved to Florida in 1971 and shortly after, he began his career as an engineer for General Telephone where he worked for 35 years. He was very proud of his years with GTE, especially to have been on the team that first brought fiber optics technologies to the Venice & Englewood areas. Dad was a Christian and devoted reader of the Urantia Book.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Herschel and Virginia (Hatfield) Lester.
He leaves behind his wife, Connie; his children, Chad Lester, Julee (Perry) Lawrence, Thomas Lester and Janice Lester; his brothers, Glen, Brian and Bradley and his sister, Rebecca, and his greatest joy and the love of his life, his granddaughter, Shelby Lawrence.
A celebration of life service will be held by our family on Saturday, April 20th at 3:00 PM at our residence in Cape Haze. Everyone that knew him is welcome to attend. To send condolences visit www.lemonbayfh.com
