Richard Harold "Buddy" Lee made a peaceful journey from this life Friday, May 10, 2013.
He was born April 12, 1959 in Panama City, FL.
Buddy was preceded in death by his parents, Capt. Harold and Mrs. Evelyn Lee.
He is survived by one son, Bubba Lee of Panama City; one daughter, Ryane Lee of Panama City and the love of his life and mother of his children, Denise Lee of Panama City, FL. Buddy also leaves behind two sisters, Pastor Dottie Williams of Canton, Ga and Sherry Salter (Bill) of Odessa, TX; Two brothers, Bobby Jackson (Mary) of Grand Isle, LA and Mitchell Jackson (Suzie) of Bonifay, FL along with several nieces and nephews.
Buddy was a fisherman by trade having been raised on the water and learning everything there was to know about fishing from his dad. During his years of fishing for business and for pleasure, he passed this love of fishing and life on the water down to his own son, Bubba, who now operates the beloved "Capt. Lee" charter fishing boat belonging to the late Capt. Lee. It has been a part of the Lee Family heritage for three generations. Buddy's tender heart and caring nature will be greatly missed.
The family will receive friends and family at Southerland Funeral Home located at 100 E. 19th St. Panama City, FL at 1pm on Friday, May 17, 2013. A memorial service will follow at 2pm. Officiating will be Pastor Dottie Williams.
