Lee Arthur Brother Washington was born July 17, 1946 to the late Leslie Washington and Otis M. Williams-Washington in Taylor, Texas.

Lee graduated from O.L. Price High School, Taylor, Texas in 1964 in the top 5% of his class. During his high school years, Lee played on the O.L. Price Panther football team where he lettered four years. He was varsity quarterback for the Panthers in his Junior and Senior years. 1961 Edward Elders Panthers led by Lee took the team all the way to the state where they won only the second state championship in the school's history. Lee wrote I was quarter-back when the O. L. Price Panthers won the State Championship 1962. Under my quarter backing, we didn't lose but one game in 1961, when we went to the quarterfinals. My senior year was the year I broke my arm. In my career of playing, I threw a total of 21 touchdown passes. My best year was my junior year when I threw 13 touchdown passes. In Lee's senior year, he was voted most popular, most athletic and voted Mr. Senior. Lee also was a star center on the Panther basketball team. The school did not have a baseball team so he played on two Central Texas baseball teams and was named one of the best pitchers in Central Texas. Lee also played the trumpet in the Price Panther Band.

In the fall of 1964, Lee attended Southwest School of Electronics. In 1966, he was called by the United States Army to serve his Country. We know that Lee had not completed his mission for God because the day he left Camron Bay, Vietnam, his base was bombed.

In 1970, Lee moved to Denver, Colorado where he lived until 1997 when he returned to Taylor to work for the Community Supervision & Corrections Department for Williamson County at the Central Texas Treatment Center in Granger, Texas. Lee loved his job very much and felt that this is where God really wanted him to be. Working there was where he felt he could be of service to others as well as to his community. Lee loved people and demonstrated this through his employment. His smile could brighten any room he walked into. He received many certificates of excellence and was awarded his certification for an Internationally Certified Justice Addictions Professional. Lee worked until his health failed him in 2009. Lee retired as the Residential Supervisor-First Shift Supervisor at the Central Texas Treatment Center.

Lee leaves to cherish his memories his mother, Otis M. Washington of Taylor, Texas; one son Fredrick (Chevon) Blue of Houston, Texas, two daughters Tara Washington of Aurora, Colorado and Lanay Washington of Thornton, Colorado; fiance Vera Elliott and children Shelbie Chinn and Ben Elliott both of Denver, Colorado and Denise (Rayford) Johnson of Pflugerville, Texas, grandsons, Fredrick and Tedderick Blue of Houston, Texas; granddaughters Dominique Blue of Houston, Texas and Naomi Lee Washington of Thornton, Colorado; four sisters Leslie (Don) Hill, Lorene (L.D.)
