Fred Terry Lee, 76, of Cumming, GA, passed away unexpectedly on November 5, 2023.

Terry was born on April 4, 1947 to Lois (Stewart) and William Lee in Atlanta, GA. After graduating from Forest Park High School in 1965, he served in the U.S. Army as a helicopter mechanic both stateside and in Germany. 

After being discharged from the army, Terry and his brother, Ferrell Lee, started F & T Grading Company and ran it successfully for many years. After closing the business Terry worked for Mack Trucks until retirement.  

Terry loved chocolate of all kinds, NASCAR (favorite driver Dale Earnhardt Sr.), the Atlanta Braves, the Atlanta Falcons, and reminiscing about his yellow ’67 Chevrolet Chevelle. But first and foremost, he loved his family, and the ones he loved most called him, “Daddy.”

Terry had a terrific sense of humor and a great smile. He loved the Lord and was a member of Forest Park First Baptist Church in Forest Park, GA.

Terry was predeceased by his wife Dagmar Busse Lee, his daughter Dianna Lee Mumpower, his brother Ferrell Lee, and his sister Linda Bailey. He is survived by his daughter, Dejuan Lee of Cumming, his son Mike (Diana) Lee of Bischofsheim, Germany, and his sister Beverly Dudley of McDonough.

Mr. Lee’s remains will be placed in state at the church Friday from 11:00 AM until 2:00 PM prior to the service. The Family will receive friends Thursday form 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at the funeral home.
