Lee was a member of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church a branch of St. Isidore Parish, where he enjoyed being actively involved. Lee has always been a huge animal lover. He loved his german shepherds, two Pekingese dogs, JJ and Biscuit, and his beloved African Grey parrot, Foggy who he enjoyed for 28 years before giving him to another loving home when he felt it was too much for him to take care of. Just before his passing, a new little female Pekingese named Salina joined the family, in which he quickly grew very fond of. Salina helped lift his spirits and worries with her rambunctious puppy ways.
