was born April 27, 1936 in Bakersfield, Texas and grew up in Iraan,
Texas. He was a lover of football and played for the Braves team.
After graduation he joined the Air Force where he served in
Ammunition supply for 8 years. During that time he met the love of
his life, Mary Ruth Gibson and they married on January 10, 1960 and
recently celebrated their 61st
anniversary. Lee and Mary, with their 3 girls, Janet, Robin and Traci
moved to Waco in 1968, where he made a lifetime home. One of Lee’s
biggest loves was his Iraan Braves football team. He was known as the
“Superfan”. He attended as many Homecoming games as possible and
would mentor players, bang the big drum during the game and even keep
the cheerleaders spirit in check. Lee also liked being involved in
his community, serving on boards, volunteering and recently even gave
donuts to the police and fire departments. The one thing everyone
knew and admired about Lee was his tenacity and a way of telling it
to you straight. He held strong to the belief in being honest and
treating people fairly, especially in business.

Kerby; his grandchildren, Rick Carmody, Marla Bailey, Zachary Krizan,
Cooper Krizan and Kevin Kerby; his great-grandchildren, Teagan Krizan
