Our dad passed away peacefully on December 11th, 2014 in Visalia California at the age of 81 with both his daughters by his side. He was born to Hershell and Thelma Williams in Wynona Oklahoma on August 19th, 1933. The family set out to California when he was just 3 months old and finally settling in Visalia at the age of 6 . Dad graduated from Visalia Union High School in 1951. He was drafted into the service in 1952 and was stationed in Germany for two years. In 1957 he married our mother, Judith Futrell. They were married for 15 years. Even though divorced they always remained good friends. Dad worked for the Visalia Unified School District for over 32 years retiring in 1994 as Operation Manager at Redwood High School. Dad is proceeded in death by both his parents, brother Jerry, sister Norma and half-sister Clara May. He is survived by his sister Shirley Maloney of Visalia, two daughters Terri Holaday ( Richard) of Exeter and Kim Estes of Tulare. He found great pride in, and loved to talk about his two grandchildren, Meghan Holaday McComb, (John) of Merced and Mitchell Estes of Tulare. He also is survived by two great granddaughters Gracelynn and Brookelynn McComb of Merced; Nephews Randy Shewey and Damon Breeden both of Visalia and Martin Breeden of Tennessee. Dads greatest joy was found at the end of a fishing pole, or hiking through the mountains. The last 3 years of dads life was spent in a hospital bed unable to walk. Our greatest joy is knowing dad is in his new body, pain free walking with Jesus, and that someday we will see him again. We would like to say Thank You Vicky and Nicole Serrato for the loving kindness and care you gave our father this past year.

Lee always had a sense of humor and liked to laugh and say witty things. I really enjoyed getting to know Leroy and visiting with him. Even though Lee had his own problems being confined to his bed, he still was concerned about others. He always let me know he was thinking about me. Lee, I came to love you from taking care of you. I know you are in a better place. I will miss you, but I will see you later in heaven. Love, Vicki
