Johnny +2 Lee

Class of 1945. John Lee. "Johnny" He married Patricia Ann Mason Lee. ~ ~ ~ ~ WIFE'S OBITUARY: Patricia Ann Mason Lee died in Draper on December 14, 2004 of lung cancer. She was born in Preston, Idaho on May 25, 1930 to Herbert and Florence Mason, and married John F. Lee on Sept. 15, 1950 in Arlington, Virginia, which marriage was solemnized the next year in the Salt Lake LDS temple. Her husband survives her as do their children, Randall (Corey) of Hyrum, Laurelei Lindsay (Sean) of Denver and Franklin (Jennifer) of Lindon; five grandchildren, two brothers (Keith and Jay Mason) and a sister (Yerda Payne) also survive. Pat graduated Idaho Falls High School in 1947 and attended Brigham Young University where she was a class officer, a Cesta Tie, the Cougarette leader, and later a member of the Alumni Board. She also attended San Francisco State University and Rutgers University, where she graduated in 1984 with high honors. While her husband attended school in Washington, D.C., she served as an aide to Sen. Henry Dworshak (R-ID). The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was her spiritual guide through life. She fulfilled many responsible callings in the Church, loved the Lord and followed His precepts. Her best friends were always her Relief Society sisters. She traveled the world extensively, both for pleasure and with her husband on business. For 12 years, during their retirement, they lived at Whalers Cove on the south coast of Kauai where Pat greatly enjoyed winter visits from family and friends. She was an avid art collector, and her own artistic ability was much admired. She excelled at handiwork, particularly needlepoint and quilting. Friends and acquaintances sought her out for unique designs and patterns. She read prodigiously, skied, played tennis and platform tennis, liked acrostics, chess and bridge. Her husband and family loved her tenderly and deeply, and she is mourned by a wide circle of friends, one of whom with a casual remark once unintentionally pronounced her epitaph. He said, "When Pat enters a room, she's the prettiest girl there." Indeed, she walked with grace and beauty throughout her life. Complying with her instructions, her body was cremated, and her ashes strewn across the sagebrush-covered prairie of southern Idaho. [Deseret News, Sunday, December 19, 2004.] ~ ~ ~ ~ HIS OBITUARY: John Franklin "Johnny" Lee passed away in Salt Lake City, Utah on February 11, 2013 of natural causes. He was born in Idaho Falls, Idaho on December 7, 1927 to Wilford D. and Lorine Hutchinson Lee, and married Patricia Ann Mason on September 15, 1950 in Arlington, Virginia, which marriage was solemnized the next year in the Salt Lake LDS temple. Patricia died in 2004. He married Jean Romney in 2005. She survives him, as do his children: Randall (Corey) of Hyrum, Utah; Laurelei Lindsay (Sean) of Denver, Colorado; and Franklin (Jennifer) of Lindon, Utah. Jean's children: David (Cynthia) Parkinson of Salt Lake City, Utah, Alan (Christina) Parkinson of Provo, Utah, Susan (Bob) Jackson of Provo, Utah, Karen (David) Blake and Mari Anne (David) Lambert of Sammamish, Washington. Five grandchildren, and a brother, Thomas W. Lee, also survive. John's formative years were spent in Provo where he attended the laboratory schools of the Brigham Young University from kindergarten up through a B.A degree, interrupted only by service in the U.S. Navy during the latter part of World War II. He graduated from Brigham Young High School in the Class of 1945. He enrolled in The George Washington University Law School in 1950, before being recalled into the Navy for service during the Korean War, in which he served to the rank of Lieutenant Commander as an intelligence officer. He reentered law school and was awarded the Juris Doctor degree, with honors, in 1956 (Order of the Coif). In 1957, he was appointed Attorney-in-Charge of the Salt Lake City branch office of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, and in 1961 entered the private practice of law in Salt Lake City as a partner in the firm Fabian & Clendenin, practicing primarily in the Federal courts, until 1964. At that time he was appointed General Counsel of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation in Washington, D.C. In 1966, he received a Diploma of Graduation from the Stonier Graduate School of Banking, Rutgers University, and in 1967 he was elected President and CEO of The Clearing House, an internationally owned electronic banking institution headquartered in New York City with offices in New Jersey, Chicago, North Carolina and San Francisco. He occupied that position until his retirement in 1993. John pioneered the science of electronic funds transfers. He organized the original automated clearinghouse in the nation to accommodate retail debits and credits, thus eliminating checks, and he built CHIPS, the world's largest electronic system for inter-bank dollar payments. In addition, he was influential in organizing the Depository Trust Company, which eliminated paper certificates as evidence of ownership of corporate equity and debt, substituting computerized book entry ownership. This innovation was adopted throughout the securities industry worldwide. He was a director of DTC until he retired. He was also a director of the New York Chamber of Commerce, the New York State Bankers Association, and the New York City Community Preservation Corporation, a company that renovated and restored housing stock throughout the five boroughs. He received many honors and awards while engaged in these activities. He served for 17 years on the National Advisory Council, Marriott School of Management, Brigham Young University. He was a member of the Navy League, the Country Club, the Utah Bar, the D.C. Bar, and the Bar of the Supreme Court of the United States. He was listed in Who's Who in America for over 30 years. His novel, Stigma, was published at age 80. After his retirement, and until her death, he lived with Patricia at Whalers Cove, Kauai, Hawaii. His time on the island was partially devoted to volunteer work at the Koloa Elementary School where he regularly read stories to classes of small children, and tutored fifth grade boys in reading. He loved young people, coached little league baseball, and offered career guidance to college bound students. He continued similar volunteer activity, with Jean, at the Franklin Elementary School during the time he lived in Salt Lake City. As celebratory life-end experiences, he and Jean traveled extensively, circling the globe twice on Cunard ocean liners. Our Family wishes to express great thanks to Jorge Zapata for his devoted service and to all the other caregivers who lovingly assisted Dad in his last days. In accordance with his explicit instructions, his body was cremated, and his ashes scattered on Mt. Timpanogos. A memorial service will be held at the Arlington Hills LDS ward, 1300 Fairfax Road, Salt Lake City, Utah on Saturday, February 16, 2013 at 12 noon. Friends and family will gather at the same location from 10:30 am to 11:30 am. Please consider a contribution to the Perpetual Education Fund or another charity close to your heart in lieu of flowers. [Deseret News, Tuesday, February 12, 2013]
