Ronald “Ronnie” Wayne Lee passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on February 13, 2022. He was born January 28, 1949 in White Plains Kentucky to Shelby and Ella (Dillender) Lee. He is survived by his wife Shirley Sharber Lee, daughter Tracy (Brad) Fletcher of Dallas, TX, daughter Stephanie (Christopher) Creek of Lewisburg, KY, grandchildren Shelby Fletcher, Taylor Herndon, Bailey Herndon and Jack Fletcher, sister Shirley Lee Anglin(Gary), many beloved sister and brother-in laws, nieces, nephews, and great nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents Shelby and Ella Lee, brothers Patrick, Charles, Joseph and John Lee, and sister Eva Nell Sawyer, many aunts, uncles and cousins.

 

Ronnie married Shirley Sharber on January 24, 1969 in Mortons Gap, KY. They met in biology class at South Hopkins High School. On a $5 bet from a friend, Ronnie asked Shirley out on a date and won more than a few bucks! Through life’s ups and downs they made it through side by side, raised a family, loved and spoiled their grandchildren. Ronnie worked at Birmingham Bolt for 24 years. He was a Jack of all Trades, skilled electrician and could fix anything. He was quick to help family, friends and neighbors, before they even knew they needed it. Ronnie proudly served his country in the Vietnam War in the 1st Air Calvary Division. Ronnie loved music all of his life. After retirement, he started Country Time Karaoke company and provided many hours of fun and music at the Prairie Rose Cafe. He was a talented singer himself earning the title of Silver Fox from his fans. He was smart, funny, true to his word, and would give the shirt off his back to anyone in need. Ronnie loved Jesus, his family and friends, the USA, and Concord Missionary Baptist Church.
