Stanley D. Lee passed away peacefully Saturday, Dec. 29, 2012. He was born Jul. 5, 1922 in Dix, IL, the son of Kenneth and Mae (nee Dykes) Lee. Raised in the Freeport, IL area, Stanley graduated from Freeport High School and went on to attend the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, where he wrestled and pursued a degree in Commerce. In 1942 his education was put on hold when he enlisted in the Army Air Corp. During this time he flew B-29 Bombers in the Pacific. Among his many accomplishments, Stanley earned a Distinguished Flying Cross for heroism and achievement in aerial flight. Stanley later returned to the University of Illinois, where he became a member of the Alpha Delta Phi fraternity and graduated from the School of Commerce. It was during this time that he met his beloved wife, Ann Potter, with whom he shared a loving marriage until she passed away in 1988. Stanley co-owned the St. Charles Lumber and Fuel Co., sold brick and millwork, and ultimately retired as a real estate agent in 2002. He will always be remembered for his service to his country, his gift of storytelling, and most importantly for his faithfulness and dedication to family.

"My heart is heavy with sympathy for your loss. Yet, a smile is generated when I recall the day that Mr. Lee's good friend and military buddy, George, broke Stan out for what proved to be their final mission together. Although the family was extremely concerned, when all was said and done, we had to smile at this gesture of love between two old friends sharing one final ride . . . a multitude of fond memories abound for the family of this gentle and honorable man. With much love and sympathy, Jan Bubb (Friend of Debbie Meagher)"
