WAUNAKEE/NECEDAH-Robert William "Bob" Lee, age 71, of Waunakee/Necedah passed away on December 1, 2019, at home, peacefully. Bob was born on January 16, 1948 in Beloit, the son of William and Lois (McGraw) Lee.

Bob was raised in Maple Bluff where he volunteered on the fire department. He attended Madison East High School, Class of 1966, then went on to serve in the US Navy during Vietnam. Upon his return, he became a Lodi Police Officer for 2 years before joining his father in the family dry cleaning business. In 1969, Bob met the love of his life, Mary E. Pollock. They wed in 1970 and had four daughters.

In 1972, Bob started his career as a Waunakee Police Officer, serving 26 years and achieving the rank of Sergeant. After retiring from the Waunakee Police Department, they built their dream home in Necedah where he spent the rest of his days.

Bob was an avid lover of the outdoors and frequently enjoyed taking "adventures". He took great pride in manicuring his lawn to golf course grade. He taught in the Police Science program at MATC and was very involved in the Waunakee School District, first as McGruff and later in the D.A.R.E program. He was elected to the Waunakee Village Board serving 2 terms as head of the Parks Department.

Bob is survived by his wife, Mary E. Lee; his "favorite" daughters, Lori (Harry) Irwin, Tami (Karl) Betz, Keri (Jim) Ceder, and Jami (Adam) Meece; 10 grandchildren, Josh and Alyssa, Cailee, Saxon and Madeline, Madison and Emma, and Austin, Ashton and Addison. He is further survived by his brother-in-law, Rick (Diana Stegall) Pollock and nephew, Brad (Jaque) Pollock and children.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his in-laws, Harold and Edna (Gram) Pollock; nephew, Tom Pollock; and many other beloved relatives.

A Memorial service will be held on Saturday, Dec 7, 2019 at 3:00 p.m. at the Winn-Cress Funeral Home, 5785 Hwy. Q, Waunakee. Friends may call on Saturday from 1:00 p.m. until the time of services at the funeral home.

Forever in our hearts....We love you Bob-a-Lou!!

Bob was a caring, generous, and professional police officer dedicated to serving the schools and the community. He was always willing to listen and help with problems at any time.
He always treated us like family and loved to cook for everyone. His prime rib and rice pilaf were legendary.
We will miss him.
David and Diane Chalgren

Ray and Linda Malewski on Dec 3, 2019

What a wonderful friend. We all had so much fun on vacations. He always made sure we enjoyed our time together. Words don’t do him justice. What a true privilege and blessing to know him. Now all his questions are answered. We will miss him, but we know we will see him again in Heaven. Ray and Linda Malewski
