Lee married Tresia Mae Steiner on June 15, 1960 in Big Spring. They had three girls Tammie, Cindy Lee, and Kelley Rhea. They were married for 49 years until her passing in February of 2009.

Lee and Tresia enjoyed traveling and vacationing with the family. They were always evolved in some sort of project from picking cans up on the side of the road to traveling to estate sales.

Animals had a special place in Lee’s heart. He would never pass up an opportunity to help any type of animal. Lee’s way with animals allowed him to gain the trust of wild animals allowing him to pet deer and geese.
