December 3, 1946 ~ July 17, 2022 (age 75) 75 Years Old


Frank William “Bill” Lee III, 75, of Moline passed away on Sunday, July 17, 2022 at home.

A funeral service will be held at 1:00 pm on Saturday, July 23, 2022 at Christ Anglican Church, 1717 8th Ave Moline. Private inurnment will be at a later date in Nashotah House Cemetery, Waukesha, WI. Memorials may be made in care of Nashotah House Theological Seminary or Monmouth College. 

Bill was born on December 3, 1946 in Detroit, Michigan, the son of Frank William Lee Jr. and Mary Isabelle Kuhlman. He graduated from Monmouth College in 1969 with a Bachelor’s degree in History. Bill married Margaret “Peggy” Will Lee on November 3, 1972 in St. Louis, Missouri. He worked as a Procurement Analyst for TACOM on the Rock Island Arsenal for 30 years. 

Bill’s passions included reenacting with the North West Territory Alliance, where he was a part of the 84th Highland Regiment and then the British Marines. He was a part of various pipe bands over the years, including Monmouth College Highlanders, Kansas City- St. Andrews Society, St. Louis- Meeting with the Waters, Morten Highlanders, Peoria- Celtic Cross, and most recently, Blackhawk Pipes and Drums. 

Bill loved his wife Peggy, his family and friends, the pipe band, the NWTA, and a good joke (some bad ones, too). He loved to tell stories, get into shenanigans, and a good drink. If you were fortunate enough to meet him, you would know he loved always and smiled often.

Those left to cherish his memory include his wife, Peggy; children, Jasmine (Joshua Rotkin) Lee and Joshua (Crystal) Lee, both of Moline; and grandchildren, Kayla and Edward Sierra-Lee, Devlin, Alannagh, and Bergan Lee.
