Thomas R. Lee Jr. Obituary
Thomas R. Lee, Jr., of Sweetwater, passed away September 7, 2016 in Fort Worth, TX.
Services are pending for a later date. All arrangements are under the direction of McCoy Funeral Home.
Tom was born September 17, 1927 in Houston, TX to T.R. And Alma Lee. He was raised in Sweetwater and graduated from Newman High School. He served in the U.S. Navy from 1948-1952. Shortly after his honorable discharge he met and married Lanell Davis in Sweetwater November 27, 1952. Tom worked many years for the Santa Fe Railroad and moved back to Sweetwater from Albuquerque, NM after retirement in 1990. During retirement he worked for his brother-in-law at Burnett Construction. Papaw (as known by his grandkids) was very skilled with his hands and spent the rest of his retirement years in his workshop crafting "gifts" for all he loved. Each project was perfectly crafted in detail; from rocking horses to bird houses. He took great pride in his work.
Tom is survived by daughter Patricia Williams and husband Ronnie of Albany, TX; son Gary Lee and wife Mary of Fort Worth, TX; eight grandchildren; sixteen great grandchildren and six great great grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his parents T.R. Lee, SR. and Alma Lee; his wife Lanell Lee, a daughter Pamela Porter; a brother Vernon Lee, and a sister Katherine Hanks.
"The goal is not to live forever, the goal is to create something that will." - Unknown.
