Lee Arthur Lee

Lee Arthur Lee was born on July 8, 1945, the second of nine children to the late Sara and  Willie Lee, Sr. of Flora, Mississippi. He attended school in Flora before moving to Chicago  for a few years. In 1965, Lee decided to make Atlanta, Georgia, his permanent home until  his departure from this life.  

Lee worked for several decades in the Atlanta School System at Blalock Elementary,  earning the affectionate title of “Mayor Lee A. Lee” from the late Mayor Maynard Jackson  in the Bankhead Court area. He played a significant role in the Police Athletic League  (PAL), ensuring that elementary school children were punctual and actively involved in the  program. His dedication helped foster a sense of community and discipline among the  youth.  

In 1979, Lee pursued his dream of becoming a truck driver, a career that brought him  great joy and fulfillment. He also had a remarkable “green thumb,” cultivating a variety of  vegetables and fruits.  

Lee joined First Rephidim Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Gus  M. Harris in 2010, where he also became a deacon. Deacon Lee was known for his warm,  welcoming demeanor and infectious sense of humor, making everyone feel at home. His  sincere, joyful spirit resonated throughout the church, endearing him to all who knew him.  His two favorite hymns: “Guide me O though Great Jehovah” & “There’s a Lilly in the  valley”.  

Lee transitioned from this life on June 27, 2024, after a courageous battle with cancer. He  has now gained his wings and found Victory in Jesus.  

He was preceded in death by his daughter, Porcha Laton Lee. Lee leaves to cherish his  memory his loving wife, Yvette Lee; four sisters: Mary Henry (Lee), Grace Hatfield,  Katherine Walker, and Carmetra Fears (Dan); two brothers: Phillip Lee (Linda) and  Thomas Earl Lee; daughter: Zandrell Moore; four grandchildren: Tobias (Zella) Moore,  Xavier (Jasmine) Moore, Delorse Moore, and Serenatie Moore; five great-grandchildren:  Gia, Zarah, Sage, Malachi, and Yohan; along with a host of nieces and nephews, family and  his beloved First Rephidim church family.  

A family patriarch who welcomed everyone into his life, Lee will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
