Lee Edward Fesko, age 76, passed away June 11, 2021, at his home. Lee was born in Homestead, Pennsylvania, and later made homes for him and his family in San Francisco, Atlanta, and finally Franklin, Tennessee. Lee was a Vietnam veteran, serving in the Navy aboard the USS Ranger and USS Enterprise. He was a man who took every opportunity to laugh and invariably found a way to make those around him join his chorus. Though he spent his entire professional career behind a desk at IBM, he felt most at home operating table saws and hand tools and putting his hands in the dirt to grow his garden. Following the lead of his Savior, Jesus Christ, Lee spent most of his life in service to his brothers and neighbors. There was seldom a weekend when he wasn’t helping a friend with a brake job or helping lay a new tile floor in their kitchen. He was a churchman in every respect. Lee was a loving husband, father, grandfather, uncle, mentor and friend.
Preceded in death by his father and mother, Elmer and Florence Fesko. Survived by his wife of nearly 53 years, Eren Fesko; mother-in-law, Clara Valero; sons, John (Anneke) Fesko and LeeEric (Tracy) Fesko; grandchildren, Jack, John Jr., Logan, Robert and Carmen Penelope; and other sons, daughters, and grandchildren he found along the way, Angie, Jeff and Robin, Daniel, Nathan, and MerryEren; and countless loving friends.
