Cleamon Lee loved to sing and did it daily.  He was a member of a successful singing group "Extra Rich (in Soul)" comprised of his brother Melvin Wynn, two cousins Nathaniel & Billy Jarman, and a family friend Phil.  Cleamon Lee also loved anything concerning basketball.  He taught all of his nieces and nephews the finer points of the game.  He played neighborhood "pick-up" basketball games until his untimely death in 1999.

Cleamon and Beverly in love.
