OBITUARY: Patrick Alan Lee


Patrick Alan Lee, age 54, of Columbia, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, April 13, 2024, due to injuries sustained from a motorcycle accident.

Born on January 11, 1970, in Napa, California, Patrick was the beloved son of James Maurice Lee and the late Maureen Murray Mair Lee.

He dedicated himself to his work as an electrician, owning and operating Lee Electrical for over 10 years. Patrick was known for his quirky personality and his steadfast commitment to his word. He found joy in riding motorcycles and cherished the freedom of the open road.

Patrick had a heart of gold, exemplified by his unwavering devotion to caring for his father, whom he held dear. However, his greatest source of happiness came from spending time with his loving wife, Tammy Kelley, and her children and grandchildren. His family meant everything to him, and he treasured every moment shared with them.

Patrick leaves behind a legacy of love and laughter, which will be carried on by his surviving family members: his wife, Tammy Kelley of Columbia; his father, James Maurice Lee; children, Dalton Kelley of Nashville, Christian (Janie) Kelley of Alabama, Danielle (Jeff) Mikesell of Ohio, and Brenna Kelley of Columbia; his brother, Mark Lee of Scotland; and adored grandchildren, William, Isabella, Eden, London, Cheynne, Jacob, and Keilee.

The family welcomes condolences and memories to be shared at the Heritage Funeral Home website,

Patrick will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him, but his spirit will live on in the hearts of those he touched. May he rest in peace.
