Before leaving Camden as a young man, Freddie Lee was a talented athlete in high school. He traveled the world as a Merchant Seaman and finally retired from EXXON MOBIL in 2002. Nothing pleased Freddie Lee more than talking about his life as a child and the things his grandfather and grandmother taught him. He was very serious about life, but loved to laugh.

His ashes will be scattered off the coast of San Pedro, CA.
