His family relocated from Carlton to Roscoe in 1931 and to the Inadale community in 1932, where he lived the rest of his life. He graduated from Pyron I.S.D. in 1941, and was a Baptist. Arthur Lee married Annie Schulze on Feb. 21, 1947 in Sweetwater. He was a farmer and a steward of the land that he loved. Farming was not only his occupation but also his life. Arthur Lee served on several boards including Hermleigh I.S.D. school board, Inadale Coop Gin, and Scurry County Farm Bureau.
Daddy was a fair and honest man: thinking before he spoke, conservative in beliefs and practiced good work ethics. He was a good husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. Daddy will always be remembered and remain in our hearts.
Survivors include his son, Robert Pieper and wife Jane; daughter, Sharon Jones all of Sweetwater; two grandchildren, Shane Jones and wife, Jenny of Cibolo and Paige Wilks, and husband Jeremy of Sweetwater; six great-grandchildren, Pieper Jones, Kyndall Jones, Gavyn Cobb, Jax Watts, Vonnie Watts and Peyton Wilks. He is also survived by his sister, Jewel Harris, of Borger; two brothers, Carl Pieper of Clyde and Travis Pieper and wife Virginia, of Odessa; and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Arthur Lee was preceded in death by his wife, Annie Pieper; parents, Samuel Monroe Pieper and Myrtle (Barnett) Pieper; siblings, Orene Cummings, R.B. Pieper, Arnold Pieper, D.M. Pieper, Robert Duane Pieper and Velma Nader.
