Through his many years, he enjoyed several hobbies including photography, wood working, traveling and gardening. He was considered a jack –of-all trades by all who knew him. In his later years, much of his time was spent feeding and watching birds of all kinds while John Wayne movies played on the television. Mr. Kee was very proud to be official patriarch of his Kee family and he invested many hours into researching his genealogy. His greatest love was his family.
