Micky Lee

We are sad to inform you of the passing of a longtime dancer, Micky Lee, on November 19, 2023. Anyone who was dancing before 2020 knows Micky with his long beard.

Micky Lee was born in Chico, California on New Year’s Eve 1934 and grew up there with his parents and sister. He began college soon after graduating from high school and then joined the army. While stationed in St. Louis, he married a girl who was a St. Louis native. After his discharge from the army, he returned to California and earned a degree in biology. He joined the National Park Service and served in several states. During this time his two children, Celeste and Crispin, were born. Eventually moving back to St. Louis, he spent his final career with the City of Overland especially with the parks and police departments.

He initially started dancing in 1957 then took a break for family, kids, etc. then returned in 1981. Micky joined Swingin’ Singles square dance club which later became Singles & Doubles. It was there that he met his wife, Gerry. They married in June of' 1985.

He served in several offices in Singles & Doubles including Metro rep. S&D’s Cosmic Dance with glowsticks was Micky’s idea. He was also a member of Yellow Rockers.

He worked extensively toward converting the Metro NEWS to a format the US Postal service would accept for reduced mailing fees.

In addition to square dancing, he was an avid gardener, and he became interested in beekeeping, aquaculture, and mushroom hunting. He enjoyed sharing what he loved and happily taught others about those interests.

His ashes were interred with Gerry’s at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery. In addition to his two children, he is survived by four grandchildren.
