Serving Proudly As The Voice Of Valley County Since 1913

Eldon R. Lee Services

Eldon Richard Lee, 71 of Glasgow, Mont., passed away on Thursday, May 25, 2023, after a long battle with a terminal illness.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m., Monday, June 26, at First Lutheran Church in Glasgow, with Pastor Scott Kiehn officiating. Burial will take place in Highland Cemetery, Glasgow.

Eldon was born in Plentywood, Mont., on Nov. 6, 1951, to Reubin and Norma (Glover) Lee.

When he was a young boy, his family moved to Glasgow: the town that Eldon called home for the rest of his life. After graduating from Glasgow High School, Eldon attended the Billings Vo-Tech School before returning to Glasgow. He met his wife, Donna, who had moved to Glasgow from Bellingham, Wash., to start her teaching career. Eldon and Donna married in 1975 and had three children together: Jennifer, Jason, and Daniel.

Eldon worked as the manager of United Building Center for a number of years before starting his own business, Lee's Electric Tool Repair. He was a natural tinkerer, so this career change suited him perfectly. For Eldon, this was as much a career as it was a hobby, as much a workshop as it was a playground.

In addition to fixing tools and appliances, Eldon enjoyed house and yard work, keeping the birds around his home well-fed, making homemade jerky, playing card games on his computer, and watching engineering videos on YouTube.

He is preceded in death by his father Reubin; and brother Tracy.

He is survived by his wife, Donna; daughter Jennifer; sons, Jason and Daniel; granddaughter Elivia Mitchell-Lee; mother Norma; brother Marlan (Brenda); sister Brenda (Pete) Turok, and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.

In remembrance of Eldon's life, his family asks that a charitable donation in his honor be made to the First Lutheran Church's accessibility projects or the charity of your choice. Condolences for the family may be left at
