Hometown Hero Lee Roy McGraw

On February 3, 2018, Old Glory flew high and proud in honor of Hometown Hero, Lee Roy McGraw. During the historic floods of Hurricane Harvey in 2017, Lee Roy worked to rescue neighbors and friends in Orange, Texas. With the escalating dangers that came with this flooding, Lee Roy was swept away by strong currents and perished. He spent all day and night working to serve his community when they needed help the most. His selfless service to the community inspires others to seek opportunities to make meaningful contributions to the welfare of our neighbors and communities.

His dear widow, Dena Stanley-McGraw, received the flag that flew in Lee Roy’s honor as a token of appreciation for his efforts and selflessness. May we never forget this Hero’s bravery and service. Rest In Peace, Hero!
