Memorial services for Lee R. Slaughter Sr., founder and former chairman of Slaughter Industries Inc., will be at 4 p.m. Thursday at Sparkman / Hillcrest Chapel, 7405 W. Northwest Highway.

Slaughter, 82, started one of the Southwest's largest lumber companies in 1946. The company had two facilities in Dallas and served general contractors, home and apartment builders and industrial accounts in 40 states.

In 1979, Slaughter sold the company to International Paper Co. for an undisclosed price. Before the merger, Slaughter Industries reported annual sales exceeding $55 million.

One of seven sons of former Dallas County Commissioner J.W. Slaughter, Lee Slaughter Sr. grew up in the Bachman Lake area and was educated at the Terrill private school.

He was considered a great outdoorsman and had many fishing and hunting accomplishments.

Surviving are his wife, Emily; sons, Lee Slaughter Jr. and Howard Slaughter; and four grandchildren, all of Dallas.
