Lee was born in Petersburg, Independent Cities, Virginia to William Crawford Bonner (1900-1988)
About a year later Lee moved his family to Portsmouth, Virginia where he was a machinist in the Norfolk Naval Shipyard. Over the next five years he and Lois had two more children, William Kelly "Butch" Bonner and Timothy Wade "Tim" Bonner.
Lee was a quite man, with not much to say, but those who knew him loved him. He lived the rest of his life in Portsmouth but when his children were younger, he would return to Aurora once a year on his vacation to go fishing with his children, father, brothers and nephews. Lee died in 1987 of lung cancer in Portsmouth, Virginia. He was interred in Oak Grove Cemetery, Portsmouth, Virginia.
