Mr. Ronnie A. Lee, 69, of Corsicana passed away on Sunday, January 21, 2018 at Heritage Oaks Retirement Village in Corsicana. He was born on October 3, 1948 in Phoenix, Arizona to Robert Arnold and Ethel Elizabeth (Riley) Lee.
He owned and operated Lee’s Roofing Company for 37 years, retiring in 2014. He served the Lord faithfully for many years, and attended Community Chapel Church in Corsicana. His last week of life on this earth was spent in the wonderful care of Heritage Oaks Retirement Village for rehab. He has now gone to glory waiting for the rest of us. This wonderful man of God, the best of the best, is worshipping and doing his “little jig” before the Lord as we speak as he receives his crown of righteousness. How his testimony and words of wisdom will live in my heart and continue to inspire me to do God’s will. Love you so much paw-paw.
