Connor Stephen Lee, 28 years old passed away on October 11,2021 at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Tacoma, Washington. His passing was completely unexpected, and his family is shocked and deeply saddened.

Connor was joyously welcomed into this world by his mother Monica Gallentine Druen and his father Don Lee on January 3, 1993. Connor leaves behind a loving family, his beloved 5-year-old son Tyson, his mother Monica Druen, his father Don Lee (Marie), siblings Monica and Josh Druen, Sawyer and Mathilde Lee, grandparents Leta Gallentine, Judy and Don Lee, his partner Jorie Reitenbach, Aunt Nan and Uncle Tim Pashon, Uncle Gregg Gallentine, Uncle Mike and Aunt Lisa Lee, Uncle Greg Lee, cousins Tessa Gallentine, Rachel and Molly Pashon, Samantha, Kevin and Declan O'Keefe, Ryley, Rubey, Garrett and Jackson Gallentine, Ashley, Samantha, Nicholas and Brooklyn Lee and Ashley Woods. We take comfort knowing he was welcomed into heaven by his Father David Druen, Grandpa Sam Gallentine and his Uncle Bryan Gallentine.

Connor made an impression on all who knew him. He will be remembered for his devoted love of family and friends, his sweet smile, adventurous spirit, his wicked gaming skills, his crazy outlook on life and his big heart.

Connor was a 2011 Sterling High School graduate. He was a member of the Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indians. Connor was a Specialist First Class in the United States army and would have been honorably discharged on November 4, 2021. Prior to his time in the service he had been employed as a welder at Micron Industries.
