Obituary for Lee Roy Embree

LEE ROY EMBREE, age 73 of Emerson, IA died Sunday, August 4, 2019 at Nebraska Medicine in Omaha, NE following a long battle of heart disease. Lee was born March 7, 1946 in Ottumwa, IA to Lee Roy Embree and Kathleen Mae (Langston) Embree. He was raised in the Thurman/Tabor, IA area and lived most of his life in Southwest Iowa. Lee graduated from Fremont-Mills High School in 1965 and served in the U. S. Army, later in the National Guard. He retired from the Glenwood Resource Center as a mechanic in the Motor Pool.

Whether traveling or just visiting, Lee loved life and being with family and friends. He enjoyed spending time outdoors. Mushroom hunting, fishing and watching college ball games and car races were some of his favorite things to do. He loved Iowa Hawkeyes football and giving his sister a hard time when they played the Nebraska Corn Huskers. He always looked forward to the College World Series. Either watching from home or attending. He never met a stranger and always left your friend.

He is survived by his daughter, Heidi Pullen and husband Anthony of Emerson, IA; son, Travis Embree and wife Nina of Emerson; 6 grandchildren, Michelle Pullen, Trenton Pullen and wife Alexis, Peyton Embree, Jackson Embree, Olivia Embree and Reese Embree; sister, Beulah Heidvogel and Richard McConahay of Oklahoma City, OK; Aunt, Phyllis Kuhl of Pacific Junction, IA; numerous nieces, nephews, many other relatives and friends.
