Great Grandchildren Jaden and Jenelle Young, Chole Woods, And Carter and Quinn Cornect, Brother George Lee in St. John’s, NL and a large number of relatives and friends.
Johnny also known as Papa Smurf spent most of his life in West Bay, Newfoundland. He was a well-loved member of not one community but loved by many of the communities. Johnny was best known for his outgoing personality and his ability to drink anyone under the table. He was a hard-working man who worked alongside many of the local fishermen in the community, he enjoyed spending his time on the water, cutting wood, and hunting. Johnny absolutely adored his grandchildren and great-grandchildren who referred to him as “Poppy Lee”. Waiting for him in Heaven’s is his late wife Jenny, son Nelson, Grand-daughter Stephanie, many family members and many of his buddies. Johnny Lee will be greatly missed but surely not forgotten, he was a Legend at his best.
Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions, there will be no formal funeral service at this time. Please continue to show your support to the family through messages, calls, and by signing the online guestbook.
