David, carrying the noticeable handicap of Polio did not allow his condition to stop him. He went on to win awards to include those in mathematics, became a fluent sign language interpreter, educator, preacher, writer of music and dabbled in art in his spare time. He was also a noted upholsterer and did wood repair and restoration. Mr. Lee’s favorite hobby as a young man was shooting pool. He was known to many as a master pool player.

David Lee joined in marriage at an early age and to that union he had one son Eric LaDon Lee whom he loved dearly. He often bragged about his son and his beautiful wife and his lovely grandchildren.

After his long fight with cancer, David Lee joined his mother Johnnie Mae Lee and his father John Lee who preceded him in death. David Lee is the first of seven children to transition.
