During his youth, Lee enjoyed sports and as an adult he enjoyed playing recreational hockey, curling and golf until his health conditions prevented him from doing so. As his health declined, he enjoyed watching golf, hockey, and football on television.
Lee was a devoted Saskatchewan Roughriders fan and never missed watching a game on television or in-person when his health permitted.
Lee spent over 35 years working, and many years as a business partner, in the sheet metal and plumbing trades primarily in the Yorkton and Kamsack areas. Lee was forced to end his career early and fought a courageous battle with multiple sclerosis for over 20 years.
