Allen Scotty Lee, Sr., went to be with the Lord on February 23, 2017, at the age of 57, but his larger-than-life persona and trademark ambition will never be forgotten. Allen was born on January 16, 1960 to James and Frances Lee. Affectionately known as Scotty by his family and many friends, he attended Sam Houston High School. On November 13, 1979 Scotty married Brenda Dears and to this union three sons were born, Allen Lee, Jr., Brandon Lee, Naquawn Lee and two other siblings Courtney Jackson (Andrea) and Nacole Lee (Lorna Gail). In their younger years, Scotty and younger brother Carl started a band where Scotty played the drums. In July of 1987 he began truck driving school in Little Rock, Arkansas where he received his commercial driver's license and went straight into the workforce shortly after. In 1995 Scotty started at United Site Services (Southwest Co.) where he proudly devoted almost twenty three years of service. He was also affiliated with Boyd Chapel AME and loved reading the Word of the Lord. Scotty loved being around his family and helped anyone in need. He fondly reminisced about the old days and growing up with his father, mother, sisters and brothers. Quite a teller of tales, Scotty's elaborate stories were often punctuated with the phrase "It's hard out here" and "Cleaner than a health clinic". He enjoyed all types of music from old school and gospel to R&B, even a little new school. He loved listening to Never Could Have Made It by Marvin Sapp, I Remember Mama by Shirley Caeser, Just Ain't Good Enough by Johnny Taylor and Another Again by John Legend. Scotty was known for his timeless words of wisdom including: "Your determination is your destination" and "Watch where I'm going with this". He had a great fondness for his mother's Sunday cooking, home improvement and landscaping, driving nice cars and dreaming big. Scotty took fashion advise from no one. With his trademark button up with slacks and boots or casual cap, t-shirt or polo, light colored jeans and Nike tennis shoes, his comfort far outweighed any interest in the latest fashion trends. His devout ambition and determination has served him well throughout his life. He was an outstanding model of strong sheer determination right up until the end of his journey here on earth. He will be greatly missed and fondly remembered by many family members, friends, nieces and nephews. Scotty had many loved ones. He was preceded in death by his father James W. Lee; brothers, James W. Lee, Jr. (Baby) and James E. Lee. He leaves many precious memories to his mother Frances Lee; his children Allen Lee, Jr., Brandon Lee, Courtney Jackson, Naquawn Lee (Sheryna) and Nacole Jackson (Ervin). Seven grandchildren, Allen Lee, III (Tre), Seven, Laniya, Kennedy, Delilah, jace and Aliaiah; three brothers, Anthony (Dorothy), of Austin, Texas, Carl Lee (Edith Mae), Curlee Ray Lee of San Antonio, Texas; five sisters, Evelyn Williams, Patricia Lee, mary Williams, Delores Lewis (Richard) and Katherine Perry of San Antonio, Texas. His ex-wives, Brenda Lee and Barbara Lee. Worthy of acknowledgement Gertie Rankin and a host of nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, uncles, aunts, cousins and many great friends.

  1. He was such a great guy. Lived down the street, he had been a brother in law to my brother, we share a niece and nephew, his daughter is kin! It was like we were kin but not kin. We had some great laughs together. I will miss seeing him when I go home. My deepest condolences to the Lee’s.
