Kevin Lee, 41 year old, Woodward resident, died December 20, 2019 in Oklahoma City. Funeral services will be held at 2:00 pm Saturday, December 28, 2019 in the Living Word Fellowship Church. Interment will be Monday, December 30, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. in Elmwood Cemetery with the Billings Funeral Home in charge of arrangements.

Kevin Edward Lee was born on January 8, 1978, the first of two children to Edward and Brenda Lee in Huntsville, Alabama, where Kevin's father was stationed in the Army. In his early years Kevin moved from Huntsville to Germany, back to Arlington, Virginia, and finally, to Louisville, Colorado in 1991. He developed a love of the outdoors, hiking, camping, and skiing, a love of reading, and an enthusiasm for animated and deep discussions--especially on theology. Graduating from the University of Oklahoma in 2001 with a zoology degree, Kevin soon realized that his skills and passions were best suited to interacting with, influencing, and serving people.

After living in Colorado for several years, Kevin moved to Woodward, Oklahoma, where he met and married his wife Emily on October 21, 2012. They lovingly blended their family as they each had a daughter, Marissa Lee and Madelynn Smith. Kevin and Emily grew the family with the birth of their daughter Mariah, who preceded him in death. Their daughter Marleigh Jo joined the family in 2014.

During his working career, Kevin excelled as a car salesman, an AFLAC insurance agent, an assistant manager of a grocery store and a restaurant, an owner of a small lawn care business, and an Associate Pastor at the New Covenant Church in Woodward. Most recently Kevin was an insurance agent for Health Markets, and was known for his knowledge of the industry and his ability to find clients better insurance at a lower cost. His successes were sometimes challenged by inner struggles; but he persevered with enthusiasm, focus, and determination.

Kevin's greatest joy came from his genuine and sincere love and passion for God, for his family, and for other people. He loved going on mission trips to share God's word, traveling numerous times to Mexico, Wyoming's Wind River Indian Reservation, and to Guatemala. He maintained contact with a large number of friends, exchanging ideas, encouraging them, posting scripture, and he was never too busy to help someone in need. He was a devoted husband and father. Despite working hard, he always tried to make time for his wife and daughters.

On the night of December 20th, Kevin's heart apparently gave out, and the world’s loss became Heaven's gain. His passion for life, his voice, his laugh, his intelligence, his outgoing personality, and his sincere desire to help people, encourage them, and tell them about God will never be forgotten by all who knew him.

He is survived by his wife, Emily Kay (Smith) Lee; daughters, Marissa Jean Lee; Madelynn Jae Smith; and Marleigh Jo Lee; sister, Laura Jean (Lee) Anderson and husband Dylan; and their family; parents, Edward M. Lee, Jr. and Brenda Quick Lee.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Kevin Lee College Fund for his children with the Billings Funeral Home accepting contributions.
