"Sweethearts Forever"
Our devoted Dad and Grandpa reunited with his sweetheart on February 11, 2013. Lee was born on October 11, 1920 in Price, Utah to David and Eliza. He married Donna Jean Carroll (deceased) in Granger, Utah on August 8, 1947. Later he married Thelma Arthur, May 7, 1994. He was a WWII Navy Veteran, Kennecott Copper retiree, American Red Cross swimming instructor, Boy Scout and 4-H Leader. He enjoyed traveling the world with family and friends. He was a member of the LDS Church. Dad taught our family the value of hard work and self-reliance. He was a master gardener who raised apples, vegetables, farm animals, and five children who were his "pride and joy." His children are Sharon Mackay (deceased), Carolyn (Michael) McPharlin, Denton (Sydney), Roger, Gerald, two full-term stillborn baby girls; 15 grandchildren; and 12 great-grandchildren.
