Robert Edward Lee passed peacefully in his home in Lexington Park MD on February 12, 2018. Robert was born September 15, 1966 in Havervill, MA to James Emory Lee and Betty Ann Lee. Robert was the son of James, who spent 4 years as a member of the United States Marine Corp and originated in Massachusetts. James settled and started his family in Haverhill, Massachusetts. Following his father's footsteps, Robert also joined the United States Marine Corp right after high school graduation, where he enjoyed his time both overseas and stateside. Robert was a hard worker, supporting military helicopters for much of his life both in the USMC and Contractor Support within Dyncorp, and thereafter with Bell Helicopter. He was known as an expert in his field and the solution provider for any given circumstance, he always had a fix or the right person to contact.
Robert loved many things in his life, and was always curious to discover much more. Music was something he cherished every moment of the day, and he often spent a lot of his hours humming to the tunes of Eddie Vedder and the Beatles. He would tell tales of all of the shows he had adventured to, and remembered every experience down to the minute. He also just enjoyed telling stories, about anything and everything he ever learned or experienced. He was a lover of cinema, Star Wars and The Planet of the Apes were by far his favorites, with the addition of Citizen Kane, and A Christmas Story on repeat every Christmas Day. Not a moment would go by where he wouldn't talk about the philosophy of the Force, and how he really did apply it to his everyday life. He loved to garden, and would always make sure there were at least one hundred tomato plants in the front yard, they were his favorites. He found himself most content and meditative with yard work, and loved to spend time with the cats and other pets he cared for in the garage. If he could find the time to be outside, he most definitely was. He found a joy in cooking and was always whipping up something new, especially on Sundays while he watched his football games. Thanksgiving was his favorite holiday, and every Christmas morning he made his traditional breakfasts for his family, which he loved so very much. Robert also loved to laugh. There was never a dull moment when you were with him, and no matter what he would always find a way to get a chuckle out of everyone he crossed paths with. In 1994, He met the love of his life, Wendy, who introduced to him her daughter Kristen. Robert and Kristen quickly developed a bond that could never be broken as father and daughter. Two years later they had their first born, Shanon, and with a great blessing, they were gifted their youngest daughter a few years following, Robyn. Robert, Wendy and their girls settled in Dameron, MD, where they resided as a family, grew, laughed and cared for each other for 18 years.
He is survived by his former wife of 19 years and greatest friend, Wendy Lee; his three children Kristen Norton, Shanon Lee and Robyn Lee; his 4 sisters Susanne Morse (Chuck), Jennifer Lee, Melissa Noyes (John), and Jessica Hennessey (Matthew); and his beloved mother Betty Ann Lee. He is preceded in death by his father, James Emory Lee.
There is no way to fully express the rich life of Robert, or the ways he has touched so many people. He was truly a man with a generous heart, exceptional intelligence, dedication to his family, and his faith. He will be greatly missed by all of his family and friends.
