On October 19, 2019, God reached out his hand, opened His arms, and welcomed Donny Lee to His eternal place of rest. Donny Lee was born on September 21st, 1955, in Tacoma Washington to parents, Ellen and William Lee. Donny accepted Christ at the age of 12, when he was baptized and joined East First Baptist Church in Seattle, Washington. Donny is the brother to five sisters, Tressia, Sheila, Joyce, Breneta, and Valerie. Donny moved to San Diego, California in 1971, where he attended and graduated from Helix High School. He worked as a welder and an electronics assembly technician.
Donny had a deep love for auctioning and raising farm animals. Donny loved his family more than life itself, and had a very giving nature about him, giving you the shirt off his back if you asked. Some of his hobbies included going to Chollas Lake for bird feeding, bingo, dining out, arts and crafts, and watching his favorite western movies.
To cherish his loving memory he leaves behind daughter, Sharisa Lee; son, William Lee of San Diego; grandchildren: Cierra Jones, Nevaeh Ordonez, Devonte, Demari, and Zaraya Lee of San Diego; sisters: Tressia Hampton (Ronnie Hampton brother-in- law) of Seattle WA, Joyce Brooks of Pensacola FL and Valerie Lee of San Diego CA; and a host of nieces and nephews; great nieces and nephews and lifelong friends.
Donny was preceded in death by his father, William Lee; mother, Ellen Lee; sisters, Sheila Buckner and Breneta Fairley; grandmother, Ethel Hawking, and great aunt. I.B. Nunnary.
