Heroic, loving father and everyone’s best bud, Tom passed away surrounded by those who loved and respected him. Preceded in death by father, Julius M. Lee; mother, Doreen M. Lee; son, John Thomas Lee; second wife, Rachel Lee; and brother, Julius S. Lee. Survived by first wife, Tina; daughters, JoAnn and Thersia (Danny); sons, David and Matthew; grandsons, Jonah, Julian and John; brothers, John (Mary) and Tim (Yong); sisters, Patty (Stan), Sharon and Sandy; and several cousins, nieces and nephews. Larger than life and all heart and soul, he was a phenomenally fierce, fearless and fervent fighter to the end. The Earth will be empty without the echo of his thunderous laugh and words of wisdom, but it was time for the prodigal son to return to the loving embrace of the Father. Yes, Bud! Visitation Tuesday, 3/23/21, 12-3 (service at 3) at Kessler & Maguire Funeral Home, 640 W 7th St.
