Army. He, a mechanic and sharpshooter in the U.S Army from 1962-1965 and a mechanic at Crane Carrier for 31 years.
Lee lived in Jenks and Glenpool Oklahoma while married to Willie Margaret. His
hobbies, sports, interests, activities, and other affiliations included dominoes, scrabble, he loved watching Magnum P.I., Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune, Who Wants to be a Millionaire, any old western he could watch, feeding squirrels in his backyard, and watching OU football. He served as an usher at his church for some time, they attended Regular Baptist in Jenks, Oklahoma for 50 years. He was a sweet man of God; who loved his family, and helping everyone. Also enjoyed cupcakes and Reese’s. He was happy, content, and a strong believer in Jesus Christ! He honored his years served in the military, was very loving to his children and Margaret’s daughters, accepting them his own. His love also encompassed his grandchildren and great grandchildren as well as his nieces and nephews. Lee always loved doing things himself, he was stubborn, and did not like much help because he “needed the exercise” or enjoyed mowing the lawn. Just last year he bought a new lawnmower and man was he sure excited to take us out to the shed and show us right away. Anytime he planted stuff in the garden, he always loved planting plenty to share.
He had a sense of humor like no other, even though things might be tough he was always “doing alright.” One of his favorite things was to get his haircut, always made sure it was combed over the right way and made sure to specify that we get all the hair off his neck and out of his ears. Stubbornness would kick in and although great grandma Margaret might have always had something cooked, he would not let a thing go to waste or someone to go unpaid for the things we might have helped with. He loved his root beer, nutty bars, a cup of coffee and pancakes at 4am, long naps around noon, a robe to wear around all day long with his old t-shirts, blue jeans, and socks or house shoes. Great memories are when he play dominoes and tried giving himself points, or the times scrabble got brought out and he would try and make up words then grandma Margaret says “Lee, go get the dictionary that ain’t a word,” as he would sit there chuckling as she tried to find it in the dictionary. He always had a sarcastic dark sense of humor, that sometimes did not make sense, until he would start laughing at his own jokes. He left this Earth to go home knowing he was okay, and knowing he would be alright. Unfortunately, he was preceded in death by his father, Frank, his mother, Rhoda, 2 brothers and 1 sister, a grandson Christopher, and a great grandson Kolton.
He was a happy, simple man and had no disappointments or regrets, a true man of God. Kevin Steven’s shared, “As a teen in high school, my friends that would come over to grandma and grandpa‘s with me, usually felt nervous, and some even afraid of the silence of grandpa. But those of us who knew his love knew that he was simply as the Bible says “quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to wrath”.
He was every example of what I knew a man should be when I left home and started my own family. He was a protector and provider. And he was caring and strong. A prime example of how a child of God should be.” Grandpa always loved everyone, always forgave, and had the biggest heart, although his silence was sometimes misleading, but the chuckling laugh was beyond contagious!To send flowers to the family or plant a tree in memory of Lee Guy, please visit Tribute Store
