Lee was very active with the VFW and in recent years took great joy in being a part of the VFW Motorcycle Group. When someone was in need Lee could always be counted on to lend a helping hand whether it be volunteering at the Jerry Lewis Telethon or helping with the VFW trash pick up. He was always a joker and labeled everyone close to him with their own nick name.BRBRSurvivors include his wife of 23 years, Fran Jeffers Foy of Merkel; his parents, Bob and Katherine Foy of Jacksonville Beach, Florida; three sons, Bill MacIntyre and wife Annette of San Antonio, Robert MacIntyre and wife Sylvia of Carrolton, Richard MacIntyre of San Antonio; one daughter, Felicia Soliz and husband Jason of Abilene; one sister, Annette Berrey of Jacksonville Beach, Florida; one brother, Allen Foy of Atlantic Beach, Florida; 13 grandchildren, numerous nieces and nephews, his puppy, Baby and a host of friends.

Hi Fran, Seems like any more the only time old friends speak to one another is at times like this. We're deeply sorry to hear about Lee's passing. He was a great friend and great soldier. Ironically, we spoke of you guys a couple days ago. So sad. He was a good man, so he must be going to a better place. May God bless him, you and your family.

I am so sorry for your loss. Lee was a good man. I have some good memories of laughs we had when I was working right out of high school at the Texaco station. He was a very helpful person. If I ever needed help with anything he wouldnt hesitate long enough to be asked to help. I am sad to hear hes gone but God did get a good man. If there is anything I can do please dont hesitate to call me. I am happy to help in anyway I can. If you need me call 3256601353. God Bless You All

Ronnie and I knew Lee through the Muscular Dystrophy Telethon. I was diagnosed with MD in 1996, and volunteered that same year, and have every year since then. Lee was a vital part of the team that made every years telethon so successful. When we got to the telethon this year, and we were going around greeting all our friends who volunteer year after year, I asked Ann where Lee was, and found out how very ill Lee was. He was a wonderful person, and we will miss him greatly.
Please accept our condolances,

There are no words that can ease your pain for this loss. We will always remember Lee Foy Boy as part of our military family which grew from base to base. We have such wonderful memories of the time we spent with him. You know he taught me how to drive a mule I hope you know that if you should need anything just let us know, we are only a phone call away. May comfort be close to you and your family in your time of need.
