It was December 3, 1942, when Robert Lee and Betty (Hahn) Lee welcomed their son, Jerry Bob Lee into the world in Fort Smith, Arkansas. Jerry passed away at home in Waldron AR., surrounded by his children on Friday, October 8, 2021.

Jerry joined the United States Navy as soon as he was legally allowed to and traveled the world. He had an exceptional 22-year career and left his family with many stories and memories which they will treasure and pass on to their children. Considered one of his greatest adventures was meeting and marrying his wife of 56 years, Clara Lee. They were married April 1, 1964, and were blessed with two children, Thomas and Carol. Jerry was unapologetically and authentically himself, he lived life on his terms and left this world having lived a good life loving his family.

Jerry was preceded in death by his wife Clara Lee, parents, and grandson Gregory Godfrey Jr. He is survived by his children, son Thomas Lee and wife Jeanie of Waldron, Arkansas, and daughter Carol (Lee) Johnson and husband Kenneth of Hot Springs Village, Arkansas. Grandsons David Lee, and Danny Lee, both of Waldron, Arkansas, granddaughters Brandy (Lee) Dixon and husband Scott, of Dover, Arkansas, Heather Kelley and husband Zach of Waldron Arkansas, many great-grandchildren, extended family and many other friends in the community.

Cremation arrangements were entrusted to Heritage Memorial Funeral Home in Waldron Arkansas.

Jerry and Clara will soon be reunited as they spend their eternity watching romantic sunsets together.
