Mr. Charles Thurlow Lee, 68, of Atlanta, Mich., died suddenly on the afternoon of April 14, 2016, at his home. He was born in Adrian, Mich., on Jan. 22, 1948, the son of the late Charles and Twila Jeannette (Pentecost) Lee. He was a proud veteran and served his country proudly in the United States Army during Vietnam. He married his wife, Sharon Rickard on July 13, 1968, in Manitou Beach and together the couple celebrated 47 years of marriage before his passing.

He was the owner and operator of Lee Brother’s Construction for many years and ran Rush Lake Resort and Elk Capital Real Estate in Atlanta.
