Well,he was a great man.
C.W.Lee lived a life of a real man born in 1908 in Oklahoma moved to Texas several years later after 1 son was born and the other died of dipthrea. Worked on cotton farm and raised 3 other sons. Built 9 homes by hand in Texarkana and then moved to Irving Texas where he took a job as an animal control officer 1955 and worked for 26 more years and retired to East Texas were he first lived. I know this man as he was my grandfather, dad and friend. As I grew up and lived with him from the time I was (2) until (17). I was not the easy grandson to raise and had several run in's with local law , but he always managed to get me out. I watched him from age 90 till 96 suffer with pancriac cancer, but he managed to get up go to town and visit with friends at local Grocery store ,checker board hang-out.As this year past he got worse and we had to put him in a 24 hour nursing home. I did not agree with the families choice to do this, but his health was going down hill as was his mind.I spent Thanksgiving with him and asked if I could do anything, he just said, you have and I am very proud of what you have become in the HVAC industry. I was called on December 18th,2004 about 6:30 and he had left us for higher ground. As I look back, I find that I have a great many of the same ideas and beleifs as he did. He left me with alot of himself and I am just now really feeling it.
Just thought I would share this with my fellow friends..
God Bless him. Mr. C.W. Lee
