Thomas S. Lee, 71 of Avon Lake peacefully passed away at his home on Sunday, December 27, 2020. He was born September 2, 1949 to parents Frank and Ruth (nee Bohland) in Lakewood, OH.

Thomas was a graduate of Bay Village high school, he attended Ohio State University and was a U.S. Army veteran. He was a skilled plumber and third generation owner of Lee's Plumbing. Thomas was a very selfless and dedicated family man. He made everyone around him feel as if they were family. He never judged and always loved hard. Thomas was compassionate and always giving to all. He was rare, a genuine kind-hearted man that would take his coat off his back for anyone. His laugh was absolutely intoxicating and he could light up any room. He enjoyed nature and feeding the squirrels, bird watching, and relaxing in the sun. Thomas was a creative man which enjoyed creating jewelry from raw opal. He was a funny guy with a dry sense of humor; always helping any and everyone, the most selfless person. He will be missed by all that loved him.

He is survived by his beloved wife Kimberlee (nee Sealander); loving daughter Jessica Lee (Gemale Couch) and his grandson Andre Lee; step-daughter Elizabeth Binzel and step-granddaughter Stormy Speath; siblings Debra Lockwood (Dave), Nancy Buck (Mike) and Terry Wilson (Scott); and his nieces and nephews Jackie, Chris, Scott, Matt and Leigh.

He was my light in my world of darkness. He made me laugh when I wanted to cry. He made me think when I wanted to act. He was my everything.
