Lee Douglas Breaux passed away on May 18, 2017 at the age of 46 in Frisco, Texas.
Lee is survived by his wife, Kayla and two children Rhiannon and Philip Breaux. He also leaves behind his father and step mother, Doug and Jenean Breaux of San Antonio, Texas; bonus sister, Shelby Coulter and several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Lee is preceded in death by his mother, his maternal grandfather, and his paternal grandparents.
Lee was born in El Paso, TX, the only son to Douglas and Pamela (Plauché). They moved to Plano when he was young and he has always considered Dallas home. He became an avid Dallas Cowboys fan at an earlier age and loved to support his team. While Lee was a dyed in the wool Texan, he loved his Louisiana roots. He spent summers with his cousins and grandparents playing outside, eating snow cones, crabbing, and shooting fireworks for his birthday. He loved Cajun cuisine and made Kayla learn to make gumbo as a condition of marriage.
After graduating from high school early, Lee joined the Army at age 17. He took tremendous pride in his service and loved his country greatly. He considered it a great honor to serve in the military. He was a Cold War veteran and was stationed in Berlin when the wall came down in 1990. After leaving the army, he served an additional 4 years in the National Guard and Texas National guard.
Lee was a lover of severe weather and often liked to stand outside watching the storms. To him a tornado was not something to be scared of, it was a thing of beauty. He enjoyed music, especially from the 70s and 80's. He was quite convinced they just stop producing anything new past 1989. He loved history, World War II, reading, and movies. He was well versed in quoting movies and song lyrics. He passed those loves to his children, whim he adored. Nothing made him happier then to spend time with Philip and Rhiannon.
Lee was quite involved with his church, Elevate Life. In his almost 8 years as a member he attended bible studies, served with the FEW and the bookstore, but he found his heart and passion serving with the three and four year olds in the kids ministry. He could often be found on the floor with kids on his back and by his side as they played with blocks, read a book, or just needed to be held. He absolutely loved to play with them and he looked forward to it every week.
Lee's true heart was his family; Kayla, Rhiannon, and Philip. He often said they were his greatest gift. He was nervous when about being a Daddy, but it was the best role of his life. He loved his kids dearly and cherished every second he spent with them. Lee was an amazing man and will be greatly missed.
Memorial services will be held at Elevate Life Church at 8500 Teel Pkwy Frisco, TX 75034 on Friday, May 26, 2017 at 11:00 A.M.

I knew Lee from his time at his grandparents in Sulphur. I was younger than him, but he always included me. Praying for the family. David Garcia , May 30, 2017
