01/17/1952 - 03/16/2012
It is with deep sadness that the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office announces the death of retired Chief Deputy Bill Lee. Lee died early Friday morning, March 16, 2012, at the age of 60 following a brief battle with pancreatic cancer.
Lee served with great honor and distinction for 11 years as the Sheriff’s Office’s Chief Deputy, joining Sheriff Ben Johnson’s administration on the first day of Sheriff Johnson’s tenure in office on January 2, 2001. Lee retired from the Sheriff’s Office on December 23, 2011. Prior to his service with the Sheriff’s Office, Lee worked for the Clewiston Police Department, the North Miami Police Department, the Rock Springs, WY Police Department and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. He left an indelible mark everywhere he worked and was known to all as a man of great honesty, integrity, wisdom and compassion. The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office is a better agency because of his service and leadership.
