Lee was born April 27, 1925, in Rosebud, TX, to V. C. and Madora (Collier) Cosby.  From the age of 16, Lee began his working career.  He was a farmer and rancher most all his life. He served his country in the United States Army during WWII and loved President Truman.

A true gentleman, Lee was kind to others and was always willing to help anyone who needed help.

Preceding him in death were his parents; brothers, Rufus, Paul, Gene, Joe Ben, David, and Wayne; son, Terry Cosby; and grandson, Robert Chambers.

Survivors include his loving wife of 78 years, Geneva Cosby; children, Johnnie Lee Cosby and wife, Patsy, and Carolyn Childress; brothers, Tim Cosby and wife, Janie, and John Cosby and wife, Lois; grandchildren, Mo, Craig, Matthew, Clay, Jana, Melissa, and Rod; great-grandchildren, Kaden and Klaira; and numerous nieces, nephews, other family, and friends.
