Jack Dana Lee, Sr., 101, died peacefully on Tuesday, March 12, 2024.

The Brooklet, GA native was born on July 26, 1922 to the late Daniel Carr Lee and Ida Mae Lee. Jack grew up in Savannah and was a proud 1941 graduate of Savannah High School; as Jack said “the Golden Age for high schools in Savannah”.  He was a member of the Savannah Golf Club since 1957.

During World War II, Jack served as a U.S. Navy Line Officer aboard the Destroyer Harlan R. Dickson – DD 708. During the Korean Conflict, he served on the Destroyer Ross DD563. After his service in the U.S. Navy, Jack attended the University of Georgia where he was a member of the SAE Fraternity. Upon graduation, he joined Southern States Phosphate and Fertilizer Co., now known as Dulaney Industries where he was employed for fifty years.

Jack was preceded in death by two sons, Christopher C. Lee and Jack Dana Lee, Jr.; two sisters, Mary Beth Gaudry and Virginia Leaf; and two brothers; Fredrick S. Lee and Richard E. Lee.

Surviving are a daughter and son-in-law, Mary Joy Lee Wood and Grey Wood; two grandchildren, Mary Lauren Wood and Kevin C. Wood; and several nieces and nephews.

Graveside service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 17, 2024 in Greenwich Cemetery with Rev. Patty Davis officiating.   All are welcome.

Jack, or Mr. Lee as I knew him while growing up was one of my father Ben Jones' long time golf partners at the Savannah Golf Club. Daddy always looked forward to their weekend rounds and thought a lot of him, on the course and off. They had some good times. Condolences to the Lees.

Mary Joy, I am thinking of you as you mourn the loss of your precious daddy! I am so so proud of his service in our US military. He lived a joyful life and you were the greatest daughter, taking care of him until the very end. Sending prayers and love.

My deepest condolences to the Lee Family. Jack was truly a remarkable man and his presence will surely be missed. Always would catch up with him on the Bluff in the mornings! Peace.

Jack will be greatly missed. His charm and sense of humor were stellar and so fun, and his memory was incredible. I’m thankful I was a third generation friend of Jack going all the way back to my grandfather, Mark Thomas.
