Obituary for I. J. Lee
I.J. Lee, loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather’s greatest joy was spending time with his family and friends. He was born March 9, 1935 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, but spent most of his life in the Humble area where he has many life-long friends. He was proud of his heritage as the Lee Family was among the founding fathers of the area. He enjoyed many activities- playing football and baseball in Humble schools and at Blinn College. His love of music and sports was shared by his entire family and many of our greatest times were attending these events together.
His favorite activity was electronics- maybe his obsession was electronics. He had almost every electronic gadget available. He spent many long hours researching and learning everything he could about his electronic gadgets.
He retired from Shell Oil Company, after 31 successful years. He was very proud of the fact that he spent the next 31 years enjoying retirement. After enjoying many years in the Humble area, he moved to the Huntsville area where he enjoyed country living and forming many great friendships.
He is survived by Billie, his wife of 61 years, their three children, Jim Lee and wife Teresa and their family; Jan Wild and husband Bill and their family; Jerry Lee and daughter Kamryn; Sister Mary Lois Collins and her family; Brother-in-law Charles Hamel and wife Joan.
