Jack “Doctor” Lee, who might have been the oldest member of the American Outlaws Association, died last Saturday in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
Doctor Lee was born on Jan. 12, 1930 in Fort Wayne. He lived most of his life in Fort Wayne and he was a member of the Fort Wayne Chapter of the Outlaws.
Like some of his club brothers, Lee had occasional brushes with the law. He lost a bail bonds business and a massage parlor in 1990 after he was accused and convicted of four counts of racketeering and promoting prostitution. He spent five years in prison and was released in 1995. Lee was also one of 36 members of his club accused of racketeering in April 2003. The government said Lee administered lie detector tests to prospective members of the Outlaws and claimed that was a crime. A jury disagreed on June 1, 2004. “What I did was no different from what I’ve done for police or anybody else,” Lee said.
Jack Lee is survived by four daughters, Deb Roy, Teri Payne, Patti Helmke and Renee Gardner and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
There will be a memorial service for him tomorrow, March 7, 2013 at 11 a.m. at the Advantage Funeral Home in Fort Wayne. He will be buried in the Marion National Cemetery.
Jack “Doctor” Lee saw it all. He was 83-years-old. He died peacefully.
