January 4, 1956, Salinas, California.


David’s father, Boyd E. Lee, was in the Navy at the end of World War II. Inspired by his father’s service, David enlisted at the end of his senior year in high school. David also came to Christ in his senior year, being stirred by a Billy Graham movie. Shortly after, David joined the Navy. During his first tour, he met his future wife Tamra through mutual friends. They were married in April 1979, and had three children: Daniel, Jessie, & Rebecca.

After David completed 20 years in the Navy, he began a literature-based prison ministry, pastored a small church in California, and did some evangelistic work in Tennessee. He is now semi-retired, writing books from his studies of Scripture, and working as Tamra’s caregiver.
