Benzenberg, Lee R.

Saginaw, Michigan

Beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and brother passed away peacefully on Friday, June 25, 2021 at the Toni and Trish House in Auburn. He was 69 years old.

He married his loving wife, Sharon Pack on March 17, 1990 at First Presbyterian Church in Saginaw. She joined him in heaven on Saturday, June 26, 2021. Lee attended Arthur Hill High School, graduating in 1970. He was employed by General Motors, retiring after 30 years of service. Lee was a faithful member of First Presbyterian Church of Saginaw for many years.

He was an avid Michigan State fan and loved all kinds of sports. He enjoyed watching his two sons; Ryan and Tim, coach their basketball teams. Lee also enjoyed having meals with those he adored. But, what he really loved most was spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren.
