Dee was born in Brownsville, Texas on April 17, 1947. He graduated from Brownsville High School and continued his education at the University of Texas Pan American in Edinburg, Texas and received a Bachelor Degree. He then went on to pursue a graduate degree at Texas A&I in Kingsville, Texas and obtained a Master Degree.
Dee was employed with the Brownsville Independent School District for 39 years as a teacher. Most of his career was spent at Pace High School. He married his college sweet-heart, Criselda M. Trevino on December 22, 1973. They were married for 46 years and raised three children together. He was a devoted Christian man, father, grandfather, brother, and uncle who always instilled his Christian values with loved ones. He enjoyed spending time with the family no matter what plans they had. Friday nights were reserved to attend local high school football games and made it a point to wait after each game and congratulate his students. He was a man who always looked out for his family and made sure they were okay in any way and provided because his family came first.
He was a man full of life and will always be remembered as a kind hearted person who was the light of the room and loved his wife, children, and grandchildren dearly. His children ask that anyone attending the burial to wear white to honor his life.
