Thomas Edwin Lee

 

Mr. Thomas Edwin Lee passed away on November 26th, 2022. He was a faithful and loving son, husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and brother-in-law. He was an avid hunter, gardener, sportsmen, coin collector, and tinker, who would try to fix most anything. He loved to tell jokes and share a cup of coffee and conversation. Most of all he was a Christian man of faith, who loved the Lord and gave of himself to serve others.

Mr. Lee was born on November 25th, 1941 in Shreveport, Louisiana. He was the only son of Robert Lee and Bonnie Blount and the stepson of Ivey Blount. He attended Byrd High School and graduated in 1959.

Following graduation, Mr. Lee joined the United States Navy where he served as an airplane technician aboard the USS Shangri-La aircraft carrier. He often said, “I joined the Navy to see the world, but I did not know it would be through a porthole!” Following his service to his country, Mr. Lee was honorably discharged and returned home.

Upon returning to Shreveport, Louisiana, Mr. Lee took a job with the Bell South telephone company. During his tenure with Bell South, he received numerous awards and became a trusted employee in his role as a Cable Technician. He retired in 1995.

Mr. Lee married the love of his life, Francis Loraine Lee in 1968. They shared 54 years of marriage and had one daughter, Susan. He was a devoted Christian husband and father, who truly put his faith and his family first in his life.

Thomas Lee is preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by his wife, Loraine; daughter, Susan Marie Parker and husband, Jack Parker III; granddaughters, Madison Jewel Parker, Grace Marie Parker, and Laura Lee Parker; his maternal aunt, Mary Neil Sepulvado, and a loving extended family.
