MOUNT OLIVE -- Terry Glenn Lee, 48, Baker's Chapel Church Road, Mount Olive, passed away Friday night, May 17, 2013, in a tractor-truck accident in which a granddaughter, Kelsey Rena Davidson, was also severely injured and died several hours later.

Terry, a 1983 graduate of Southern Wayne High School, loved the outdoors. He was especially fond of all farm animals, and enjoyed gardening, and more so, in tending it with his team of mules.

He was a member of the North Carolina Work Horse and Mule Association.

An employee of WAGES as a weatherization technician, he had previously been employed at Hilex-Poly, and also locally as a carpenter and farm assistant.

He is survived by his wife, Teresa "Shorty" Arnette Lee of the home; a daughter, Ashley Lee of Sorrento, Fla.; his parents, Nelson and Carolyn Murphy Lee of Mount Olive; a stepdaughter, Jennifer Holmes Davidson and her significant other, Deborah Price, of Mount Olive; a stepson, Rickie Dean Holmes and his fiancee´, Sara Landers, of Mount Olive; a brother and sister-in-law, Michael and Ann Lee, and their children, Michael Jr., Kevin and Megan Lee of Mount Olive; a sister, Nancy Lee of Faison; three grandchildren, Skyler Nicole Davidson, Nicholas Scott Davidson and Kylie Jay Holmes; and his wife's family, the Joe William and Edna Smith Arnette family.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Emmitt and Eula Murphy and Corbitt and Georgia Lee.

Funeral services for Terry and Kelsey will be held Thursday, May 23, at 7 p.m. at Mount Olive First Pentecostal Holiness Church, 142 Ed Edmundson Road, Mount Olive, officiated by the Rev. Jeff Dail and Mr. Jerry Boone, and followed by visitation in the church fellowship hall.

Friends and family are also being received at the Lee residence.

Committal and interment will be Friday, May 24, at 11 a.m. at Wayne Memorial Park. Terry and Kelsey's casketed remains will be taken through the cemetery to their resting place by Terry's team of mules as a lasting tribute to him and his love for them.
