Carol: We are so sorry to hear about Lee's passing, but know that he had been unwell for quite awhile now. You have been, and will remain, in our prayers. He was a good friend. We had some good times together in the old days.

Lee White Lance, Jr., 85, died on November 5, 2015. Lee was born on October 8, 1930 in Chattanooga, TN to Lee White Lance and Sophia Sims Lance.
He is preceded in death by his siblings Jean Crawford, Robert (Bobby) Lance, and Ann Ritter. Lee is survived by his wife of 33 years, Carol, his brother Davis Sims Lance (Gail) of Nashville and his daughters Emmy Ragen (Tim) of Savannah and Melissa Earthman (William III) of Nashville and sons Scott Lance (Lisa) of Savannah and Lee W. Lance III of Houston. His wonderful life was further enriched by his nine grandchildren, seven great grandchildren, and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
After graduation from Montgomery Bell Academy in Nashville, Lee attended Georgia Tech on a football scholarship. He subsequently attended and graduated from his beloved Sewanee “The University of the South” where he was president of the SAE Fraternity, a Gownsman and played and coached football as well as serving in the Tennessee Air National Guard.
After college, Lee began a lifelong career in the insurance industry starting as a Managing General Agent in Nashville and later in Memphis before opening his own firm of Lee Lance & Company in Houston.
Lee was passionate about his precious family and friends. He was a lifetime member of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. It was a perfect fit. He could always be found sporting his signature cowboy hat, boots and wonderful smile as he walked his beloved Labrador Retrievers: Dixie, Scarlett and Mandy.
Lee was a devout Christian and the perfect Southern Gentleman. His wit, terrific sense of humor and charm will be sorely missed by all he knew. “Fly high, Granddaddy.”
The family would like to thank Amazing Place, Autumn Leaves, Dr. Jeffrey Lee and all of the special people who cared for and loved Lee.
A memorial service will be held in the Chapel of St. Luke’s United Methodist Church,3471 Westheimer Rd, Houston, TX 77027, at 11 o’clock in the morning on November 19, 2015 with a reception to follow.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Amazing Place, 3726 Drexel, Houston, Texas 77027, The University of the South, 735 University Avenue, Sewanee, TN 37383, or the charity of your choice.
