Jackie Dwayne Lee, beloved husband, father, grandfather, friend and mentor, entered into God’s kingdom on February 28, 2023 surrounded by his wife and son after a year long battle with cancer.  Jack was born in Olustee, OK to W.E. and Nancy Lee, deceased.  Jack leaves behind his loving wife Norma, beloved son Steven, his wife Kathleen and cherished granddaughter, Lindsay.  Jack grew up in the windswept plains of Oklahoma and west Texas.  He graduated from Olton High (TX) in 1951.  He served in the US Army where he rose to the rank of Staff Sergeant of the motor pool at Fort Bragg, NC. Upon his honorable discharge he went to work as an auto mechanic working for his uncle at Leo Meek Automobile in Bakersfield.  He rose through the ranks to salesman and later management, working for a time with the Ford dealership in Bakersfield, then settling in for the remainder and majority of his career at Three-Way Chevrolet in Bakersfield.  He met his wife of 66 years, Norma, in 1956.  She was drawn to his dapper clothing ensembles.  The family remained in Bakersfield until Jack’s retirement in 2007, relocating to Elk Grove to be closer to their son, his wife and granddaughter.  He loved watching his granddaughter excel in soccer and softball.  He was so proud of her and the woman she’s become.  Jack’s favorite hobbies were watching the PBR, the OU Sooners and Dallas Cowboys.  He loved his old westerns, especially Gunsmoke.  His favorite movie was Lonesome Dove.  He was a valued member and Captain of the competition Notorious P.I.G. BBQ and Chili teams with his son.  He loved working in the yard and sitting in the sun.  He cherished bourbon, cigar and story nights with his son and his two “adopted” sons, Joe Welch and Tom Sakowski.  Jack was predeceased by his brothers Jim, Dickie and Dan.  He is survived by brother Gary (Houston).
