LEE, D.A. "Bud" Lee, beloved husband of Anne Lee, passed away Friday, November 26, 2021 after a brief and courageous battle with Covid. Bud was born in Marchwell, SK on May 4, 1936 to Eileen and Ernest Lee. They farmed just west of Russell then moved to Makeroff where they ran a general store then later a farm machinery and gas business in Basswood, MB. The final move was to Neepawa in 1956 where they owned Plains Farm Equipment. Bud and his brother Dudley continued the operation until 1976 when they sold to AgriEaze Equipment. Bud was employed with this firm for another 10 years. Bud and Anne were married May 24, 1958 and enjoyed many happy times raising their family in Neepawa. They loved to camp, travel, and had a close-knit group of lifelong friends. Bud was a member of the Neepawa Curling Club, Neepawa Golf and Country Club and Neepawa Lions Club. He also drove patients to treatment on behalf of CancerCare and was a quiet helper to many.
Bud and Anne were proud to be married 63 years and were blessed with four children and six grandchildren. Left to mourn his passing are his wife Anne, son David (Jo), daughter Barbara (Lindsay) and grandchildren Daniel, Victoria, Jordan, Tanner and Mason. Waiting for him on the other side are his daughter Elizabeth, son Bryan, and granddaughter Bryn.
Bud was a good man who was loved and respected for his quick wit, integrity, and gentle strength. He left behind a large bank of wonderful memories for family and friends to draw from. As per his wishes, a party to honour Bud will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy may be left at www.whitesfh.ca and memorial donations may be made to a charity of choice or to Neepawa Breakfast Club c/o Landon Cameron Box 3069, Neepawa, MB R0J 1H0 (eTransfer 204-841-3570)
And just at the moment, when someone says, "He is gone," There are other eyes watching him and other
voices ready to gladly shout, "Here he comes!"
FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS
