Lee Antwonne Mardis Jr, beloved son, brother, fiancé and father was called home to be with the Lord and gain his angel wings February 5th, 2022. Lee “Marlo” was born to Chequela Davis and Lee Mardis Sr on October 16th, 1997, in Columbus, Ohio.

Lee attended Beechcroft High School; he later obtained his GED in 2014. Growing up in Brentnell, Lee had a passion for all sports. He ran track and was a star player in little league football. He played all positions mainly safety and quarterback. He also played basketball for the Columbus Trojans and participated in the Gusmacker tournament and enjoyed spending time at Brentnell Recreation Center.

Lee was a top player in chess and love attending chess tournaments. In his leisure time he loved to travel, play video games, listen to music but most of all he loved to spend time with his family. He would always consider himself a “chemist”.

Lee loved his family and friends dearly, especially his siblings. He had a love for children and was very much looking forward to being a father to his daughter. He was a very loyal friend and would look out for anybody. Moments before the Lord called Lee home to his final resting place, he gave himself as a sacrifice to protect and shield his fiance Jada and soon to be baby girl Mar’Lee from imminent danger.

Lee definitely had a love for dogs, at the time of his passing, he started his own business “4KW’Exotic Kennels. He had a mission, dreams, goals and was just getting started. He was looking forward to being a father to his daughter and planning his wedding to marry his fiancé and being the best man, he could be to his family. Lee was a protector, a provider, and will be remembered for his ambition, his loyalty, but most of all, his smile.

Lee was preceded in death by great grandparents; Dorothy and Earnest Neighbors, great grandfather; Fred Triplett, great grandmother; Celica Bowman and best friend, Duane “Wayno” Penick Jr.
