Obituary for Jonathan Bedford Lee

HILLSBROROUGH: It is with great sadness that the family of Jonathan Bedford Lee announce his sudden passing on Sunday, March 31, 2019, at the age of 47 years old. Jonathan was born June 17, 1971 in Durham, North Carolina and was a lifelong resident of Orange County.

He worked as an elevator mechanic for Thyssenkrupp Elevators for more than 20 years. Jonathan was a dedicated father, first and foremost; he treasured his children and embraced every moment with them. As a loving son, he cherished the time he was able to take care of his mother as she aged. In his spare time he enjoyed tinkering in his shop, fishing, camping, and spending time with friends, family and most of all his children. While often times a man of few words, his infectious smile and very kind heart will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.

Jonathan will be lovingly remembered by his mother, Joyce Atkins, his children Victoria Lee, 20, Nicholas Lee, 19, and Elizabeth Lee, 16, girlfriend, Jennifer Morris Freeland, and former wife, Renee Lee. He is preceded in death by his son Travis Lee and father Bedford Lee.

The Lee family will receive friends from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, April 4th at Clements Funeral Home in Hillsborough. A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, April 5th at Crosslink Community Church with Pastor Ken Tilley officiating. Burial will follow the service at Wayside Baptist Church Cemetery in Hillsborough.

Memorial gifts can be made in his memory to Crosslink Community Church, 3445 Old Hillsborough Rd, Mebane, NC 27302. Family and friends are gathering at the home of Jonathan Lee.

The family is being assisted by Clements Funeral and Cremation Services, Inc. in Hillsborough. Online condolences may be sent to
