He was born in Highlandville, Missouri and raised by his father Eldon Emmitt Blevins, a well-known furniture craftsman. Lee was employed for over 30 years by P.G.

Lee called on me at both Texas County Memorial Hospital in Houston, MO, and later at CMH in Bolivar. He always had a joke, and was always pleasant. He took care of his accounts, and always made his visits pleasurable. I am sorry to learn of his death, and my prayers are with his loved ones. Eldon Tate, Springfield, MO.
