Brady Thomas Lee was born January 19, 1996 at Grand Forks, ND son of Jason Lee and Denae (Mjelde) Bayne. He was raised in the Newfolden area and attended school at Marshall County Central. Brady started working at the age of 11 for Grandpa Lee at Lee Concrete Construction. He earned his first pickup truck by cutting wood for his Grandpa Tom. Then he worked at Napa Auto in Thief River Falls, then went to ILS – Independent Locomotive Service of Holt and has spent the last 7 years at Central Boiler.
In 2011 he met the love of his life Maci Mundell. On September 23, 2017 they were united in marriage at Zion Lutheran Church in Thief River Falls. To this union 2 daughters were born Zoey Marie Lee and Sophie Rae Lee. The couple made their home in rural Newfolden.
The pride and joy of Brady’s life were Zoey, Sophie and Maci. He also enjoyed fast toys and anything with a motor. He loved tinkering in his garage any chance he could get. He loved the outdoors, hunting, fishing, camping, snowmobiling and 4-wheeling and ranger rides with his family. Always had to have the loudest, tricked out trucks he could find. He loved to go mudding, and the dirtier he could get the better. Most of all Brady loved snuggling on the couch watching movies with his three girls. Brady had the biggest heart and would do anything for anyone, he was the best dad, husband, son, grandson, brother, uncle and friend.
