Marty Leroy Lee went home to his Heavenly Father on June 17 after a brief illness. Marty was born and raised in St. George, Utah, to the late S. Wayne Lee and Eleanor (Beacham) Lee on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 27, 1966.
He leaves behind many people who loved and cared for him: his beloved daughter Cheyenne Lee and son Austin Lee both of Sandy, Utah; his life partner and sweetheart, Alicia Egan of St. George; his adored sisters and brothers-in-law Deelynn (Alan) Allred of St. George and Kaylynn (Matt) Petersen of Fielding, Utah; and a brother Eddie Cude.
He is also survived by his cherished nieces and nephew: Tawsha Nicole Chadburn, JeriAnn Davis, Trudy Michelle Stanton and Braydon Peterson, as well as many other great nieces and great nephews and many special aunts, uncles and cousins that meant so much to him.
Marty loved spending time with his family and tried to make it to all the special events that went on besides just chatting at any time of the day with them. Marty was a special spirit full of love, mischief, loyalty and life. He had an annoying charming personality that once you met him, you would never forget him.
He loved to make people laugh and happy and chat with you about your life. Once you became a friend, you were a friend for life whether you saw him every day or once every 20 years.
Marty had a passion for everything he did and went full throttle into anything he did. He loved music. From classical to the newest popular music, you could often find him randomly singing anywhere he was. He loved helping people in any way he could, from lending them a hand to finding them something on Craigslist that they might have been looking for. He was never a shy person and had a bigger than life personality that made him endearing to many that met him.
He loved his Cowboys and could be heard around town at any given moment saying in that big loud voice of his, “How ’bout them Cowboys?”
Marty was the life of his own party, and we were just lucky enough to be invited to it and celebrate with him.
He has left a big hole in all our hearts and lives. As much as we want to mourn and cry for him, he would want us to celebrate his life and accomplishments. He never let anything get him down even with the all the physical issues he has had in the past few years. He would just tend to the pain and keep going, never slowing his roll.
The family wishes to thank everyone who has held them in in their prayers and thoughts during this time as well as the ICU nursing staff at Dixie Memorial Hospital, including Brittany, Rusty, Hunter and Chris, as well as so many more.
