Bobby Lee Doree (Bob), 79, of Montgomery (formerly of Conroe and Houston), peacefully entered God's kingdom on Sunday, April 7, 2013, after a brief battle with bile duct cancer. He was born December 17, 1933 to W.J. and Effie Mae Stutts Doree in El Campo, TX. After the death of his father at a young age, the family moved to the Heights in Houston where his mother met and married Wallace Frank, the wonderful man who raised him. Bob graduated from Reagan High School in 1952. After proudly serving our country in the Air Force for four years, he went to work for Braniff Airlines as a customer service agent for 25 years. In 1960 he married his beautiful wife Lee. After the airline went bankrupt, Bob eventually went to work for Aldine ISD transportation as the parts manager for 15 years before retiring. He is preceded in death by his parents and the love of his life for 48 years, Lee. He is survived by his two daughters and their children, Deon Doree of Magnolia and Jeremy, Kayley and Brianna Freed, and Dawn and Scott Hill of Montgomery and Rebecca Batterson. He also had the joy of meeting his new great-grandson, Bryson Lee Twitty. In addition, he is survived by a brother and two nephews, and his close companion Maria Lara, as well as other relatives and many dear friends. Bob never met a stranger, and lived to make people laugh. As a strong Christian, he taught Sunday school for many years, and was very involved in the men's ministry at Airline UMC where he organized events such as 42 tournaments and the annual Roast N Toast. He loved to travel, often taking back roads in different routes to his destination, was an avid golfer, and enjoyed playing dominos, having a 31 year running game with his close friend Charles Faigle.

A Celebration of Bob's Life will be held at Christ Church United Methodist, 6363 Research Forest, The Woodlands, on Sunday, April 28, at 2:00pm. The family would like to thank all their friends and family for the many prayers, care and concern shown through Dad's journey, and especially the wonderful people at Odyssey Hospice in Conroe for their encouraging support. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the or Odyssey Hospice in his name.
