Lee Wayne Ault

November 8, 2017 - December 14, 2017

Lee Wayne Ault, 70, was born in Southern California, but grew up in the Bay Area. He passed away Thursday, December 14, 2017, peacefully at home with family at his side.

He attended Fresno State and earned his bachelor's degree and teaching credential, meeting his wife, Norma, while there.

He was the manager of The Refectory restaurant in the Bay Area and Fresno for 5 years. But his love and passion was evident in his 33 year career as a math teacher at Selma High School. He was a one-of-a-kind teacher who truly cared about his students beyond the classroom, field or court. He was also known for his football, girls' basketball, and Academic Decathlon coaching. Go Bears!

Lee loved to travel the world with his family, visiting every continent, all 50 US States and almost every Major League Baseball stadium. He took each grandchild to Disneyland, portions of the US and a cruise to Alaska.

Lee was actively involved in his church, living out his faith in his daily life as a husband, father, grandfather, brother, friend, teacher, coach golf player and world traveler.

He is survived by his wife of 48 years, Norma; daughter and her family, Brandy and Nathan Freeland and their children, Tatiana, Josiah, Ashton, Cale, Aeniah, and Ellory. He is also survived by his sister, Melinda Estoll and her family.

A celebration of his life will be held at 5:30pm Thursday, December 21, 2017, in the GL Johnson Chapel at Peoples Church, 7172 N. Cedar Ave., Fresno, CA 93720.

Donations can be sent to Peoples Church designated to Bereavement and Benevolence Ministries.
