Otis Lee Obituary

“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven;

A time to be born and a time to die; a time to plant and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

a time to kill and a time to heal; a time to break down and a time to build up”

~ Ecclesiastes 3 :1-3

 

     Otis Nathaniel Lee, son of the late George and Anna Lee, was born on Wednesday, May 26, 1948 in Greensville County, Virginia.

     Otis was educated in the Greensville County Public School System. At an early age, he accepted Christ and united in Christian Fellowship with Rocky Mount Baptist Church, Emporia, Virginia.

     Otis met and was united in Holy Matrimony to the late Bonnie Lou Scott Lee. They shared 51 years of marriage before her passing in 2022. During his working years, Otis was employed with the county of Greensville, from which he retired after 30 years of service. In his spare time, he found great joy in tinkering - especially with lawn mowers.

     On Wednesday, August 23, 2023, while in the care of Greensville Health & Rehabilitation Center, Emporia, Virginia, Otis peacefully transitioned from this earthly life. In addition to his parents and beloved wife, Otis was preceded in death by a granddaughter, Zykyria.

     Cherished memories will forever remain in the hearts of: his son, Edward Powell (Senora); nine grandchildren, Monica, Detron (Kadesya), Briehna, Edward Jr., Samarje, Jawon, Jamera, Kylee and Zykei; four great-grandchildren, James, Jakari, Keimora and Addison; on sister, Willie Bea Rawlings (Calvin); one brother, William Lee; two sisters-in-law, Beulah Lassiter and Pernice McLean; one brother-in-law, Eugene Bennett Scott, Jr.; a host of nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
