Lee Andrew Ferrell

April 1, 1941 — March 16, 2023


On March 16, 2023, Lee Andrew Ferrell, 82, made a graceful exit from this earth, surrounded by the love he had abundantly given all his life. Celebration of Life Service will be held Saturday, March 25, 2023, at 11 a.m. at Community Baptist Church. Interment will follow at City of Lubbock Cemetery under the direction of Griffin Mortuary. Viewing will be held Friday, March 24, 2023 from 3 to 7 p.m. at Griffin Mortuary. Lee, also known as Bill, Billy and Lil Britches, was born on April 1, 1941 in Buckholt, TX to Betsy Irene Taylor and James Arthur Ferrell (both deceased) - the 5th of 8 children.  He spent his childhood and school-age years in Lubbock, TX, where he graduated from Dunbar High School.   Lee was drafted in the U.S. Army in 1967, fought in the Vietnam War and recognized honorably with the National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Campaign Medal and Vietnam Service Medal for his service.  Lee met and married his 1st wife, the late Hattie B Stokes. To this union, they were blessed with 3 children: Janet Alexander (McDaniel), Marcie Ferrell (Gray) and Natalie Ferrell (Russell), all of Grapeland, TX. He later met his 2nd wife, Patricia Moore and grew his legacy with the birth of LeAndrea Ferrell of Dallas, TX, Patrick Ferrell of Dallas, TX, Yolanda Ferrell (Armour) of Houston, TX and William Ferrell of Washington, DC.  He also fathered a daughter, Angie Gipson (Johnson) of Lubbock, TX. Well known and respected in the Lubbock community, Lee is best described as an avid golfer, loyal Dallas Cowboys fan and a regular at the Bingo halls and casinos.  His immense passion for golf graced him to be a long-tenured employee of the Lubbock Country Club serving for 35 years.  Even at the age of 81, he never considered it “work”.  The Lubbock Country Club became his 2nd home, creating an “extended family” of peers and club members who loved him dearly and allowed him to impact and play a significant role in many lives. He consistently played the lottery, Bingo and casino and would win almost every time! He would then give his winnings away to anyone who asked, affirming in his words “the reason I win so much, so I can help who need it… to be a blessing to others”. He was a cheerful giver and an all-around great man. He was one of a kind. He is forever remembered for his generous hospitality, quick wit and humor, infectious smile and humble spirit. He loved and was loved by all his siblings. He is predeceased by his sister Betsy and 3 brothers: Thomas, James Richard and Ransom Dan (Pete).  He leaves behind his 2 sisters: Etta Harris of Lubbock, TX, Dorothy Copeland of Dallas, TX and his brother, Leroy Ferrell of Killeen, TX.  He also leaves his legacy of love through 16 grandchildren, 23 great grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and many lifelong friends. Lee will never be forgotten, but forever remembered and missed by all who were fortunate enough to know him.
