Franklin Lee Arbuckle
June 30, 2017
Franklin Lee Arbuckle, known as Lee, was born April 30, 1943, in Belle Fourche, South Dakota, to Frank and Mary Lee (Richardson) Arbuckle. Mary Lee was widowed with four small children when she married Frank, and Lee was their only child, but Frank treated Mary Lee's other four children as his own. Frank's family owned the Arbuckle Ranch in Carter County, near Alzada, Montana.
Frank showed an insatiable curiosity about the rest of the world, a quality he handed down to his son. Lee also inherited his mother's kindness and concern for her fellow man.
Lee was often the only child in his class...
