Lee Tony Moysis was born in Kimball, South Dakota to James and Emma (Pospichal) Moysis. At an early age, Lee’s family moved to the Sleepy Hollow Ranch, south of Dante, SD. He received his education at a rural school south of Dante. Lee was proud to be a Marine and loved to let everyone know. He served during the Korean Conflict from 1953-1955.

Lee was united in marriage to Shirlie Aase in Lake Andes, South Dakota on June 14, 1959. They later divorced. To this union, three children were born.

Over the years, Lee worked for Clayton Jennings on his ranch, helped build the Big Bend Dam by Fort Thompson, worked in the Homestake Gold Mine in Lead, at Flannery’s Meat Packing Plant in Huron and was later self-employed as a TV/Radio repairman.

He was happiest sitting outside on a summer night with a beer in hand, planting his garden, camping in the Black Hills and spent many summer days fishing. He was known for his love of animals, always had time for his kids and was a great Dad.
