Lee was a graduate of Milton High School and served in the Pennsylvania Army National Guard during the Korean War. He obtained the rank of motor sergeant with the HQ CO 3D BN109 Infantry 1950 and received the Occupation Medal (Germany).

He was employed as a general foreman at ACF Industries, retiring in 1994 after 35 years of service. He then worked part-time for Roan Auctioneers Inc. for 10 years.
