Kevin Daniel Lee, 35, of rural Elsie, NE, died May 10, 2023.
Kevin was a graduate of the Perkins County Class of 2006. He attended Southeast Community College in Beatrice, where he graduated with an Associates Degree in Livestock Management in 2009. While at Southeast in Beatrice, Kevin met many lifelong friends with whom he stayed in contact over the years.
Kevin quickly put his degree to work by returning back to the family farm South of Elsie. Kevin loved farming and livestock. He had an incredible passion for the land and loved working beside his Dad, grandfather, and great-uncles.
Kevin was a member of the Resurrection of Our Lord Catholic Church in Elsie and the Perkins County Fairboard. He worked many dances and events, as well as helping wherever he could during the Fair.
Kevin loved horses, his herd of cattle, his purple semi, welding projects, sour patch kids, shorts, hunting, golfing, tinkering with things, and his friends.
He was an incredibly responsible and hardworking individual. He was always willing to help anyone with any need. He took great pride in helping and working hard.
Kevin was greeted in Heaven by his brother, Jared; grandma, Patsy Lee; and grandparents, Raymond and Carolyn Hazzard.
Kevin will be forever missed by his parents, Daniel and Patti Lee of Elsie; sister, Courtney and brother-in-law Stetson of Gordon; Brothers, Tyler of Omaha and Adam of Casper, WY; Grandpa, Vince Lee of Elsie; Niece and Nephew, Tenley and Jensen of Gordon, as well as numerous Aunts, Uncles, cousins, friends, and neighbors.
Kevin never knew a stranger or an enemy. He loved what he did every day. He was an incredible Uncle to Tenley and Jensen. He always enjoyed spoiling them and taking them for rides in his semi.
He will be so greatly missed and has left an incredible void to be filled.
