Paul S. Lee, 93, formerly of Bristol, went to be with the Lord Tuesday.
He was born and raised in the Sinking Springs community in Greene County.
He served in World War II with the U.S. Navy in the Philippines.
After returning home, he met and married Elizabeth Hensley, his wife of 49 years. They moved to Bristol, where he owned and operated Lee Farm and Garden Supply, while continuing to farm his family home in Greene County.
He was a member of First United Methodist Church of Bristol, where after retirement he volunteered delivering meals-on-wheels and at the food pantry.
He was preceded in death by his wife and a son: Steve Thomas Lee; his parents: Samuel and Effie Lee; and brothers: James and Maurice Lee.
He is survived by several local nieces and nephews: Vickie Stubblefield, Sharon Dawson, Scarlett Church, Dawn Johnson and Bobby Lee; and a very special friend, Robbie Lanier.
The family will receive friends at Weaver Funeral Homes in Bristol Sunday from 12:30-2 p.m.
Friends and family will meet at Sinking Springs Cemetery in Midway Sunday at 4:30 p.m. for a graveside service. The Greene County Honor Guard will convey military honors.
