Roy Lee was the sweetest and kindest man I ever knew. Roy Lee and his late wife Martha Ann were always kind to me. The times I spent with both Roy Lee and his late wife Martha Ann will always be in my heart. I want the family to know how sorry I feel for their loss. Roy Lee was a great role model for all his brothers and sisters and was a great dad to his children and grandchildren. Roy Lee will greatly be missed by all his family and friends. May God open his doors for Roy Lee as he is reunited with his beloved wife Martha Ann.
