Obituary

Lurlie Dell Pee (L.D.), Pee was born February 5th, 1937 to Edwin Dalton Pee and Wilmer Buford Walters Pee, near Rayville, Louisiana. He passed away at home on Monday morning January 18th, with his wife Glenda Pee and son Jon Lafonte (Pee) at his side. Lurlie grew up in the farming community of Holly Ridge, Louisiana, on a family farm.
The residents of the community were close, hardworking people with strong values. It was told by a sister that when he was five years old, he was working in the fields with the rest of the family, chopping, hoeing, and picking cotton. Through the picking season, he kept up with the amount he was picking, and did the addition in his head. He was able to provide his statistics to his dad in order to get rewarded. He had picked 1000lbs of cotton.
This event set the tone for his approach to work, duty, and responsibility, for the rest of his life. Lurlie is survived by his wife, Glenda Pee, son Jon Lafonte, daughter Kimberly (Terry) Rea of Ruston, La., sons Raymond Dale Pee of Hot Springs, Ark., Roy Danton Pee and Shirley McDaniel, of Ruston, La., and Timothy Douglas Pee (Tonya) of Shreveport, La., Brother, Bob Pees (Hope)of Seguine, Texas, sisters Edwina Dillard Greer of Rayville, La, Rita Laforge, of Monroe, La, Nancy Zeller of Salida, Co., and a deceased sister, Cherie Woods, of Ruston, La. Many grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews. One grandson, Jonathon Morgan Tatum, (deceased). Lurlie served in the U.S. Army in El Paso. Later he attended Louisiana Tech University, in Ruston, La. He worked the night shift during attending college, at Polaron industries, supervising, and troubleshooting production equipment.

After graduating he went to work for the Foxboro Company, home office in Foxboro, Mass. He was eventually promoted to branch manager in Mobile, Alabama. Foxboro, owned by the Bristol family, after years of business, shut its doors... LD then was hired by Brown and Root engineering. He was moved up to department head. When Dick Cheney became CEO of Halliburton in Houston, Halliburton bought out Brown and Root Engineering, and Lurlie’s direct in command was Dick Cheney. He sat in on many board meetings with Mr. Cheney and Lurlie remarked one time when I asked him, what he talked about with him, he said, “I just listened”. Lurlie’s job required him to hold PE licenses in several states.
He had to take the PE exam for all those states in order to be licensed... Over the years, LD was recognized for his participation in his work environment as well as civic activities. Cub scouts, city league little league baseball, PTA, Boys and Girls Clubs of America’s Program of Academic Excellence, Lecturer for University of South Alabama college of Engineering, supporter for the Southeast Consortium of Minorities in Engineering, Engineer of the Year for Brown and Root Engineering as well as Engineer of the Year for the Instrument Society of America. LD served on the Comstock HOA board in Fruita Co, as well as the Elmwood Latteral board in Fruita, Co. More than anything, Lurlie loved his family. He wanted to see his Babies (grandchildren) around as often as possible. He loved to come home from work and see them splashing in the pool, or excited to tell him what activities we did during the day. Most recently, pictures of the greats came to us by posts on FB. I would show him and he would chuckle or smile. He was kept informed of all the details.
Alzheimer's is a family, even community, disease.
Those closest to the victim see the gradual loss of the person they knew and loved. In Lurlie’s case, he wanted to be included in all activities, visit with neighbors, help work outside in the yard. These relationships were so important to him. He deserved respect, to laugh, feel joy, and he understood much more than he could communicate back to us. Special thanks to Jaylee Williams, Bobbi Willy, Kaitlyn, and Abbi for being there, and to treat him like you were a part of his family. And all the Comstock neighbors who cared, without them it would have been much more difficult.
