He was born June 4, 1933 in Buckskin, and served his country in the United States Air Force.

Edgar Lee was a member of the St. John's Church in Buckskin and was a longtime sexton for the St. John's Cemetery. He was also a life member of the American Legion. Edgar Lee was kind and knowledgeable. For Corn-Colvin Funeral Home he was the “go to guy” because he knew everyone and how to get everywhere. He was a hard worker with an amazing work ethic and they just don't make men like Ed anymore. He touched lives all around the community with his heart to serve. Edgar Lee was honest, reliable, and a brother to many. He enjoyed being with people and had a contagious laugh.
