Harry “Lee” Sprouse ,77, of Hampton, Virginia  was called home to be with the Lord on Saturday, April 16, 2022.

Lee was born in Richmond, Virginia  in February of 1945 to the late Floyd and Louella Sprouse. He was the second oldest of eight children. He grew up in the mountains of West Virginia, which taught him an appreciation for the simple things in life at a young age. Lee was called on to serve his country and did so with pride. He joined the United States Army and fought in the Vietnam War. After the war, he returned to West Virginia and worked in the coal mines. Lee also found a passion for carpentry. A true jack of all trades! He migrated west to be closer to family and settled in Hampton Roads. Fate brought him to meet his beloved wife Cathy. They recently celebrated 26 years of wonderful marriage, with her being his everything! Lee had a deep faith and used it to inspire and strengthen those around him. He used his love for music to help spread joy and the Lord’s Love. He could regularly be found playing guitar with his friends at home or at his second home, Abundant Life Tabernacle.
Lee was preceded in death by his parents. Survivors include his wife, Cathy; Son, Richard and his wife, Leisa; granddaughter, Makinna; great-grandchildren, Regina and Everly; step-sons Jason and Johnny; cherished granddaughter, Alex; siblings, Clarence, Floyd, Kay, Bobby, David, Diana and Gary; sister-in-law, Diane and numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
A celebration of Lee’s life will be held at 12:00 noon on Saturday, April 30, 2022 with a visitation one hour prior. Lee will be laid to rest in Albert G. Horton, Jr. Memorial Veterans Cemetery at 1:00pm on Monday, May 2, 2022 with military honors. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions can be made to Abundant Life Tabernacle, 101 Blackburn Ln. Hampton, VA 23666.
Lee left an imprint on many hearts and will be greatly missed.

Harry was a good and true friend to my husband, Richard, and me, and after Richard’s passing, continued to be a wonderful friend to me. He and Cathy were always available to help me whenever I needed them. Harry did so many things to help me around my home. He always had time for anyone who needed help. They also trusted me as a “babysitter” for their pups, Candy and Rocky, whenever they were away. He was a true Christian believer and loved the Lord with all his heart. God must have needed a good hard worker in Heaven, and he’s got one in Harry. He’s going to be greatly missed down here, but we’ll see him again one day.
