Navy Emblem

He was a beloved son, brother, friend, co-worker, husband, and soldier, but his most treasured title was father to three beautiful girls. Robert Edward Lee, 49, passed away surrounded by family at his mother's home in Marana on June 28, 2020 after an all too short battle with pancreatic cancer.
Robert was born on November 24, 1970 to Troy Lee Sr. and Pauline Jordan in Phoenix, Arizona. He had many accomplishments during his lifetime and many things he and his family are proud of. After he graduated from Flowing Wells High School in 1988, he went to barber school. After graduating from barber school, he joined the Army. He graduated basic training in Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri in 1997. He was then sent to Germany where he met his wife, Olga. They were married December 12, 1998 and together they had three daughters, Viviana, Ava, and Mia. He served in two branches of the military during his lifetime, the army first and later the navy. He also served in the national guard for a period of time. He traveled to many different countries, learning and experiencing as much as he could wherever he went. Robert was a life-long learner, having completed his bachelor's degree in 2012 and then his master's degree in social work in May of 2019.
Robert is preceded in death by his father, Troy Lee Sr. of Phoenix, Arizona. He is survived by his wife Olga, daughters Viviana, Ava, and Mia, his mother Pauline Jordan, sisters Teresa Bullard (Jim), Michele Figueroa (Fernando), Leslee Jordan, Kacie Jordan, and Nancy Jordan, brothers Troy Lee Jr, Heath Rickard, Armando Jordan, and Eleon Jordan, along with 10 nieces, 5 nephews, 1 great niece, and 2 great nephews. We know this is not good-bye but a sad "see you later" as it is impossible that we love so deeply and will not be together again. Death of body is freedom of spirit and we embrace that because love is stronger than physical death. Happy 50th Birthday to you in heaven. We will celebrate your life well lived in memory of you on November 24th but we also celebrate and miss you each day....until we are reunited again.
