Clarence Raymond Lee was born in 1919 in Detroit to Clarence Edward Lee and Marceline (Soulliere) Lee. He was always known as "Junie" to his family.
Junie married Ruby, the love of his life, when he was 17, and Ruby was 15. They made their home in Detroit, and raised their family there.
He served his country in the US Army during World War II and saw action in France. He was awarded the Bronze Star Medal and the Purple Heart, and was sent home after being seriously wounded. He recovered from his war injuries, and then sometime in the 70's, he cut his hand while soaping his leg in the shower. Baffled, he inspected his leg more closely and discovered a piece of shrapnel that had made it's way to the surface of the skin, nearly three decades after the war.
Junie was employed for many years by the Ford Motor Company. After retirement, he and Ruby moved to Plymouth Michigan, where they enjoyed many hobbies together, including traveling several times to England.
He was always very talented at repairing many types of antiquities, and often rebuilt old clocks and refinished antique furniture in his basement workshop. He also developed a unique technique of removing small chips from antique glassware.
Junie is buried in the Garden Of The Hours, near his parents and his granddaughter Kimberly Jane Lee. Several of his siblings are also buried at Parkview Memorial Cemetery. His resting place has two markers, a large double headstone with wife Ruby, and an additional single military marker.
