Later in life Lee went back to his true passion of cowboying, raising cattle and training wild horses. He and Iris bought a small piece of land in Point, Texas where he raised chickens, horses, and the odd cow or burrow. Lee and Iris loved living in Rains County. He loved driving the back country roads of Rains County so much he served as the road and bridge administrator for Rains. He lived close to his sister Linda and kept close tabs on her family there. They were active members of Bull Creek Cowboy Church in Lone Oak. Lee became a Mason while living in Point. He always wanted to give back and the Masons commitment to service meshed well with his ideals. Lee loved being a part of a large extended family. If you are reading this and part of the family, know that he loved you. He probably knew and cared more about your children, cousins, aunts and uncles than you will ever know. Lee never missed an opportunity to get together with his brothers and sister. He cherished the time he, Bill, Ron, Linda and Johnny got together with all their children, especially all those wonderful Roland/Wallace Christmas's. He kept a special place in his heart for all his grandchildren, know that he loved each and every one of you.
