Share This Obituary

Lee was born January 19, 1960 in Clinton Oklahoma to Alma Nell Armstrong-Helfenbein and Lewis Helfenbein. The family moved to Amarillo in 1961 and Lee lived the remainder of his life in Amarillo.

Being born legally blind, Lee was fiercely independent and able to live a full, active life. He was a skilled handyman, able to make intricate engine repairs. Music was a big part of Lee's life. He possessed a keen ear with perfect pitch and could tune a guitar or tell if a stereo turntable timing was out of sync.

He was a ready volunteer to friends of Bill Wilson and had recently celebrated 24 years in that fellowship. He touched many lives and will be deeply missed.

He is survived by his mother Nell Helfenbein, his father Lewis Helfenbein and wife Wynona, a daughter Candace Hunt, a son, James Helfenbein, sisters Kim Helfenbein, Brenda Cranford and husband Troy, and son Ryan, grandchildren, Erik Helfenbein, Kolton Hunt and Darcelene Helfenbein and his four legged girls Maranda and Serenity.
