December 3, 2021 – Santa Fe College mourns the loss of Community Education instructor and artist Ernest M. Lee who passed away last Saturday, Nov. 27.
Ernest Lee grew up in North Carolina, where he learned to love painting as a youth through an art class in high school. He explored many different paints and techniques, but fell in love with painting country houses with oils. After moving to Gainesville, he was a regular instructor for both SF’s Community Education and College for Kids programs. He also exhibited his art at the annual Spring Arts Festival for many years.
A memorial service will be held in his honor Saturday, Dec. 4, starting at 9:30 a.m. at Northwest Baptist Church located at 5514 NW 23rd Avenue Gainesville.
