Dwaine Anthony Lee

March 9, 1962 — September 24, 2021

Dwaine Anthony Lee was born to the union of Charles Peter Lee and Catherine Lee, both who preceded him in death, on March 9, 1962, in Chicago, Illinois. To this union were also born, Deborah Louise Lee, Charles Lee Jr., Michael Andre Lee, William Detrich Lee, and Mark Christopher Lee.

Dwaine was raised on the Southside of Chicago, attended Calumet High School, and also took several courses at Kennedy King Community College before moving to Dayton, Ohio to spend time with his brother, Charles.

Growing up in the 60s, 70s, and 80s, Dwaine really enjoyed working on cars and spent a great deal of his time helping friends and family with everything from electrical, mechanical to carpentry needs. He was always willing to be of service for anyone that needed him. He had a great passion for music of his era and was always willing to share with anyone that would listen. His time with the younger generation has earned him a coveted title of "Uncle.” In his travels, he took pride in being there for his family, many nieces and nephews, brothers and sister and a multitude of friends. He will be missed by all.

Dwaine accepted God as his Lord and personal Savior at Saint Killian Catholic Church, in Chicago, Illinois. He served with the Youth group and found warmth, grace and peace in the fellowship. On Friday, September 24, 2021, God welcomed him with open arms to his eternal home.

Left to cherish his memory are his two daughters, Martina and Monique; his sister, Deborah; and brothers, Charles, Michael, William, and Mark. He has a host of loved ones through generations of nieces and nephews. He has touched the hearts of so many and will be missed.

A memorial service will be held on Thursday, January 13, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. in the chapel of McCullough Funeral Home. He will be laid to rest privately.

“He was my brother, my mechanic and my friend. He would drop everything and come to my aid in my times of need, without hesitation. Through the many years, I have come to depend on him and know he was heaven sent. I love you and will miss you. Your Big Sister Deborah.”

“Hey man, you were my road dog for decades, through many adventures, miles and challenges. When I look back, I wouldn't have it any other way. All we have seen and done together is cherished for a lifetime. Always will be remembered. ‘You are my Brother and I am your Brother too.’ Chucky”

“Waine, even though you were my younger brother, Your light shined mighty with the best. all the things you did for me can not be measured by any conventional measure. You made sacrifices and contributions in all our lives, that will be forever remembered and cherished. Love you man, Michael”

“You know how people used to call us twins and you wouldn't see one without the other. Well, you are a part of me and I'll carry you in my heart forever as always. Love and miss you Waine, Bill.”

“Love you Dwaine, with all my heart. As your younger brother, through all these years, you never hesitated to let the world know that I was your brother and you had my back. On many occasions you blessed me with knowledge and supported my growth through life. I will never forget all the love you showed me. Love and miss you, Mark.”
