He is the son of Jean F. and Isaure Baronet of Rayne, LA survived by loving daughters Daphne Akers (Ron) of Kitty Hawk, NC and Anna Kennon of West Palm Beach, FL, four grandchildren, and six great grandchildren, all who know and will remember his loving care.

A faithful Catholic, he traveled the world known to many as “Lucky Lee”. He was lucky indeed to be from a loving family in a small town in Louisiana that set him on a path to success in all his endeavors.

Lee is grateful to a caring staff at Spring Arbor Senior Living, to dear friends he played pinochle with every week for many years, to a kind Priest and fellow parishioners at Holy Redeemer by The Sea and to his many neighbors and friends.

Interment will begin at 2 p.m. at AG Horton Jr. Memorial Veterans Cemetery in Suffolk.
