Henry M. Lee

Dateline – Greenwood, South Carolina

Henry M. “Slick” Lee, Sr. 83, of Greenwood, peacefully passed away Wednesday, May 10, 2023 surrounded by the people he loved the most.

Born in Laurens, he was a son of the late Sidney A. Lee and Frankie M. Lee.

He had a long and highly successful career as a regional sales manager covering thirty-three states, including Hawaii. Henry left a lasting impact on the future generations with whom he worked. Slick was an avid golfer, hunter, fisherman, and storyteller. He was lucky enough to travel the world doing his favorite things. He was always the life of the party and enjoyed entertaining his family and friends with his unique cuisine. He also loved to sing and dance. Slick was a real character, always living his life to the fullest. He was very charismatic and never met a stranger. Slick was a man of the people and if you were blessed enough to meet him, he always had a smile on his face and a story to share that left a lasting impression. This is his legacy!
