Our loving husband, father, papa, brother & friend, Clayton Don (Hoss) Lee left this earth and a huge hole in our hearts, January 1, 2022, in St. George, Utah at the age of 58.
He was born on February 19, 1963, to Budd Donald and Jessie Ellen Ruesch Lee in Cedar City, Utah. He lived his entire life in Virgin, Utah.
He met the love of his life, Laurie the summer of 1992, and were married September 5, 1992, after a whirlwind courtship, when he not only gained his loving wife, but his three oldest children. He was blessed with another son, four years later.
They were sealed together for time and all eternity on January 21, 2006, in the St. George Temple. His family was his pride and joy. He lived a life full of love for his family and his Savior.
Clayton started working at a young age running the crusher for his dad’s construction company. He and his brother continued the Budd Lee Construction Legacy, where he made a lot of lifelong friends along the way.
Clayton also loved to farm and ranch growing some of the best alfalfa hay and cow herd in the Virgin area.
When he wasn’t working, he loved to go up to their property on Kolob and enjoy camping, hunting, and fishing with family and friends.
He is survived by his loving wife, Laurie, his children, Layne (Rachelle) Reed, Brant Reed, Marissa (Josey) Spencer, Wyatt Hoss (McKenzie) Lee.
