Bob Lee, Age 84, of Columbia Cross Roads, PA passed away at home on March 31, 2022. He was born Jan. 3, 1938 in Evergreen, PA to the late Roy and Rosa (Chilson) Lee. In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his brothers Jacob, Cameron, Clayton, Perry and Joseph Lee and sisters Genevieve (Elmer) Clark, Mildred (Warren) Brown, Beatrice (Albert) Simons, and Anna (Aubrey) Cole.
Bob is survived by sisters Ruth (Kenneth) Shipman and Susan (Richard) Comstock, brother-in-law Aubrey Cole, sisters-in-law Grace (Clayton) Lee and Jeannine (Joseph) Fields, and many nieces and nephews.
He lived many of his teen years with his sister Bea and family in East Smithfield, working for farmers and neighbors, learning many life-long lessons of a handyman. His love of the outdoors eventually led to his lifelong occupation as a logger. Eventually, he built his own home in East Smithfield, where he lived until his passing.
Bob loved hunting, fishing and music. He played the harmonica beautifully and wrote many of his own songs. In his younger years, many likened his voice to that of Bing Crosby. Bob was a kind-hearted man who will be missed by many.
