Lee Jasper Brookshire, Jr. passed away peacefully at home in his sleep of natural causes early Sunday morning, July 19, 2020.

Graveside Service: 10 a.m. Saturday, July 25, at Restland Funeral Home and Cemetery, 13005 Greenville Ave., Dallas, with Reverend Dr. Russ Peterman officiating. Visitation: 5-7 p.m. Friday, July 24, at Wade Family Funeral Home, 4140 W. Pioneer Parkway, Arlington. All are welcome.
Memorials: In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to University Christian Church, 2720 S. University Drive, Fort Worth, Texas 76109.

Other than managing heart disease, Lee was healthy and happy. Lee was born May 4, 1936 and grew up in Lufkin, Texas. His father, Lee Brookshire, co-founded Brookshire Brothers Company. At the age of 11 years, Lee Jr.could be found spending his Saturdays sacking groceries. After attending Tulane University for 2 years, he transferred to Baylor University to earn a B.A. degree. Deciding not to pursue a career in the grocery business, Lee went on to get his J.D. degree from Baylor Law School.

Lee served in the National Guard and was called up in 1960 with the 49th Armored Division. After spending a year at Fort Polk, Louisiana, he was released from active duty following the Berlin crisis. Lee worked in the banking business through law school. After managing Navarro Savings and Loan Association in Corsicana, Texas he practiced law in Fort Worth as the general counsel for Colonial Savings Association until he retired in 2004.

On January 14, 1995, Lee married Linda Haggard Lamun at University Christian Church on the TCU campus. They have continued to serve UCC as faithful members. Lee served on the Board of Stewards and has been a member of People’s Bible Class for many years.

Lee spent his happy retired years reading, traveling, attending Cowboys and TCU football games with Linda and family. He also enjoyed playing the piano at home. Lee and Linda loved to attend the Fort Worth Symphony and Dallas Symphony Orchestra concerts and events. He was also an avid snow skier and SCUBA diver most of his life. Lee is remembered for his kind heart, gentle spirit and as Linda’s hospitality partner as they so loved to host and entertain at their home in east Fort Worth.

Survivors: Lee is survived by his beloved wife, Linda; daughters, Britt (husband, Bob) and Carlye (husband, Ralph); granddaughter, Clare; sister, Jan Osgood (husband, Bill); Linda’s children, Tim (wife, Jett), Steve, Jeff; and four grandchildren. He will be deeply missed.
