Lee is survived by his wife Cheret of 20 years of marriage and 30 years together, sons Colton O.Z. Littlefield and Carson Ray Littlefield. Loving mother Margie Searcy, sisters Marsha Jones and Trina Littlefield, a brother Monroe Littlefield, special nephew Robert Littlefield, who he loved like a son. Lee is survived by his mother in law, Debbie Binyon, who he loved so much, he may have loved her hot sauce more, who’s to say. Lee had many nieces, nephews and extended family that he loved dearly. His friends were family to him, too many to list, he loved each and every one of them.
Lee was a loving husband, father, son and friend to everyone. Lee never met a stranger. He would talk to anyone and instantly would have a new friend. He loved people and helping others. I have heard it many times, “Lee would give you the shirt off his back”. Lee loved deeply and without stipulations. He did not judge people by what they had or had to offer. He loved without boundaries, he held no grudges or ill will towards others.
Lee always worked hard to provide for his family. He had many talents and abilities. Lee was a machinist first and foremost. He loved working in the machine shop. He learned most of the trade from his brother in law and friend Bobby Jones. Lee loved to learn and work with his hands, he spent many hours working in the shop with his father in law, Don Binyon. Lee went on to work in the oilfield where he finally retired from. Most recently, Lee was working for Heath Elliott, longtime friend and owner of Imperial Electrical Contracting.
Lee enjoyed spending his free time riding his Harley and just being with his wife and two boys. Lee was so proud of his boys, Colton and Carson. He would brag about them to anyone that would listen. He never missed a day to tell them that he loved them.
Lee was stubborn and hard headed. I guess that’s why he survived so many incidents that would have killed a normal person! We always joked that he had more than 9 lives. 1991 was the year that we thought would be his last. God had more life planned for him. He came back with a fight and determination to live life and make it count. Lee was a faithful man that craved the word of God. He never had any doubt that he would one day be sitting at the foot of the Lord. He knew that he would be joined with those that had passed on before him.
Lee is preceded in death by his Father Willard Wayne Littlefield, along with his maternal and paternal grandparents. Lee is preceded in death by who he considered his dad Jerry Searcy, who he loved so much. Jerry or “Old Man” as Lee would call him was his best friend and raised him as his own son.
A special thank you to the Emergency First Responders, Shaffer Pioneer Funeral Home, Kimberly and Kevin Kirkland, Shawn Cason, Derrick Campbell, Marsha Jones, Debbie Binyon and all that have showed their love and support to the family.
Due to the current situation in our community right now a memorial will be scheduled at a later date. In the near future we will come together to celebrate the life of Lee Littlefield, or as some of you knew him, Leaper or Big Boy.
Throughout this obituary one word continues to repeat, “Love”. Lee loved, just simply said. He loved and was loved and will continue to be loved.
