Randal Mark Lee

Randal Mark Lee was born October 28, 1949 to Bonnie Daniel Lee and Herbert Lee in Port Neches, Texas. He passed away in Houston, Texas on August 24, 2013. He was 63. He graduated from Port Neches-Groves High School in 1968 where he was All State MLB. Randy was highly recruited by numerous universities and ultimately decided to accept a scholarship offer from Rice. After achieving academic and athletic successes, Randy graduated from Rice in 1972 with a degree in business commerce. Randy and a few of his football buddies formed the Annual Full Moon in 1976. This group of Rice teammates just celebrated their 38th annual reunion and has grown to nearly 40 members.
He met the love of his life, Donna Johnson, while still in college in 1969. They married in 1971 and celebrated their 42nd anniversary together last May. Donna and Randy were blessed with two wonderful sons, Mark Nathan and Christopher Reid. Randy was a devoted husband and father who had many passions that he was able to share with his family. He derived great joy from watching his sons participate and achieve success in their various activities. There was no doubt that Randy was extremely proud of the men his boys became. Mark and his wife, Kim, further blessed him with three grandsons, Jackson, Austin and Mason. As a proud grandfather, Randy was given another opportunity to experience the joy of watching the next generation of his family grow.
Randy went to work after college at American General Insurance Company which began his long and accomplished career in the insurance business. He joined the Swantner & Gordon Insurance Agency in 1976, managing the Beeville, Texas branch until relocating to the main office in Corpus Christi, Texas. He became the managing partner of Swantner & Gordon in the mid 90s and under his guidance the agency grew into one of the largest independently owned agencies in the country. Randy championed the effort to merge Swantner & Gordon with Higginbotham & Associates in 2010 and continued to run the agencies as managing director of South Texas operations.
Randy was a true friend, never met a stranger, was the first to lend a helping hand and touched the lives of all who knew him. He was involved in numerous organizations including Tejas Vaqueros, Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo and the "R" Association to name a few. Due to his level of commitment, Randy always seemed to find himself in a leadership capacity. He served as a director of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, a Maverick Mother and Vice Presidente of the Tejas Vaqueros. His support of these organizations led to his tremendous extended family and many "friends for life".
Randy is preceded in death by his parents, Herbert and Bonnie Lee. Family members that are left to treasure his memory are his wife, Donna, sons Mark Nathan Lee and his wife, Kim of Missouri City, Texas and Christopher Reid Lee of Los Angeles, California and three grandsons, Jackson Grady Lee, Austin Mark Lee and Mason Randal Lee. He also leaves behind two brothers, Danny Lee (Linda) of Rockport, Texas, Kent Lee of Port Neches, Texas, father-in-law M.O. (Jack) Johnson of Houston, two brothers-in-law, Rod (Karen) Johnson of Houston, Texas and Rick (Lorraine) Johnson of Houston, Texas and many nephews and nieces.
