Lee emerged from the Cajun swamps around Lafayette, Louisiana with early schooling at a Catholic convent. He spent a little time around Beaumont, Texas before enrolling at Texas A&M to study for a degree in mathematics and receive an Air Force commission. He also met his beautiful future wife while at A&M.
During his over 20-year Air Force pilot career, he amassed over 8,000 flying hours including Vietnam combat duty. He also held several leadership and management positons, earned an MBA and retired as Lt. Colonel. Also during this time of frequent travel, his amazing wife raised four great kids nearly all on her own.
Following retirement, Lee became an airline pilot, taught high school math and worked with a kid’s special-needs class, taught technology at a junior college, worked in personnel for a major defense contractor, worked for the grand State of Texas as Actions Officer in Emergency Management, was trained in veteran's counseling, and played golf and tennis and ran track. Especially significant during this time, the family lost its precious daughter to leukemia.
Lee’s early interest in helping others was ignited on a military mission to India where he witnessed out-of-control poverty on a huge, very huge, scale. Since then, he has been actively involved in many charitable organizations and church help ministries. Influenced by the suicide of his brother, he recently started a Mental Health Ministry in his home church of Round Rock Presbyterian.
Lee looks forward with great hope to the success of the Pavilion Clubhouse of Round Rock in its work with those with mental health issues.
