Obituary For Arthur Lee Russell

Arthur Lee was born on November 25, 1943, in Hampton County, South Carolina, to the late Bennie Russell and Catherine Russell. At an early age, he joined and was baptized at Good Hope Baptist Church in Estill, South Carolina. He attended the Public Schools of Hampton County.

He had an impeccable work ethic. An ordinary day for him was working from dusk to dawn. His employment included: Wayne Line, Brunson Building Supply, Grays Construction, Lawton Oil Co., and J.R. Wilson Construction.

Arthur Lee was a talkative, hardworking, and strong individual. No matter what life brought his way, he stayed positive. He was a man of many trades. He was a self-taught mechanic, brick mason, carpenter, hunter, avid farmer, and cook.

"The future is not ours to know, and it many never be, so let us live and give our best, never anticipating or doubting the power of our Saviour; asking nothing of tomorrow except--THY WILL BE DONE."

Arthur Lee was united in Holy Matrimony to his long-time sweetheart, Virginia Housey. This union was blessed with four children.

On Saturday evening, November 06, 2021 at Hampton Regional Medical Center, Varnville, SC, Arthur Lee took flight home on the wings of his parents and siblings: Genevieve, Marion, Rannell, Joe, Bobby, Geneva, and Thelma; where they celebrated the grand reunion.
