• BRAGG Jr., Leroy “Lee,”
died peacefully Sunday, Sept. 9, 2007, at his home in Ft. Walton Beach, Fla., after a courageous battle with cancer. Mr. Bragg was born in Dallas, Texas, Dec. 12, 1928, to Leroy Elgin Bragg Sr. and Anna Mexico Corley. Finishing high school early, Lee joined the U.S. Navy and served for three years. Honorably discharged and with a great desire to be a pilot, Lee subsequently enlisted in the U.S. Air Force. Achieving the rank of lieutenant colonel, Lee flew with the Strategic Air Command in Korea, California, Colorado, Arkansas, New Mexico, England, Turkey and finally Eglin Air Force Base in Ft. Walton Beach. His service to the country lasted 26 years. After retiring from the service, Lee completed college, receiving a bachelor’s degree in accounting at the University of West Florida in Pensacola, Fla. Lee used his education well, opening his own accounting firm in which he and his wife, Margaret, side by side for 25 years. Upon retirement, Lee and Margaret enjoyed traveling, especially with good friends Tom and Betsy McQuoid of Ormond by the Sea, Fla. Lee was a committed citizen of the Ft. Walton Beach community, serving on organizations such as the Local Housing Board, the local Humane Society. He was a strong supporter of theater and arts especially of the Northwest Florida Ballet Association in its early years. Lee’s family treasure wonderful memories of him: sitting in a comfortable arm chair smoking his favorite pipe while poring over the stock market reports, quietly relating some hilarious story of one of his many experiences, describing in depth the steps required to build the gazebo for his beloved Margaret, enjoying a game of Flight Simulator at his computer, working on the 3-D puzzles in Mary and Jim’s basement with his loving grandkids, letting them think they could beat him in a water gun fight or, perhaps his greatest accomplishment, the annual Halloween “Haunted House,” a magnificent maze which he constructed to the delight of his grandkids and the entire neighborhood. It is deservedly legendary. Lee was preceded in death by his parents; and his devoted wife, Margaret Ann Bragg. He is survived by his daughter and son-in law, Mary Ann and Jim Yann of Knoxville; grandchildren, Maureen, Katelyn, Jimmy and Patty Yann, all of Knoxville; sister, Nancy Davidson of Llano, Texas; cousin, Don Foster of Dallas, Texas; several great-nieces and -nephews; devoted friends, Tom and Betsy McQuoid of Ormond Beach, Nell Sheehan of Ft. Walton Beach, Ed and Regina Butter of Trenton, N.J., Les and Karen Schwelling of Birmingham, Ala., BJ Vinsant of Harriman, Bobby Morgan of Bluefield, W.Va., and Sister Renee Yann and Sister Kathleen Long of Philadelphia, Pa. The family received friends Friday, Sept. 21, 2007, at the Click Funeral Home Farragut Chapel with graveside services following at the East Tennessee State Veteran’s Cemetery with full military honors conferred by the U.S. Air Force. The family sincerely appreciates the care given by the doctors and staff of Emerald Coast Cancer Center, Covenant Hospice and Comfort-Keepers, especially caregiver, Judith Fields.
