Percy Lee House III - Law Enforcement - Virginia

Deputy Sheriff Percy Lee House III, age 52, died in the line of duty on February 1, 2014, on a roadway in Greensville County, Virginia.

He was called Lee by his friends and family.

Lee was a member of the Greensville County Sheriff's Office, based in Emporia, Virginia.

He was on patrol in the Skippers area when he went missing. A massive search was initiated involving multiple agencies from the surrounding counties. His patrol car was found submerged in a creek off of Massie Branch Road. His body was recovered by a police dive team a short time later.

The cause of the crash is under investigation but it is believed that his vehicle left the roadway as the result of ice and slid into the creek.

The Greensville County Sheriff's Office is in mourning over the death of their brother.

Friends stated that everybody loved Lee. He would do anything for you to help out. He had spent his entire adult life protecting and serving his community.

Lee was 6 feet 8 inches tall. He is described as a gentle giant of a man. He was a fine

Pray for all who die in the line of duty. 

Pray for all who die by misadventure. They are with us one moment and gone the next.

Pray that Lee is in heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
