We received the following from St. Louis Music (SLM) on Tuesday, January 22:

It is with a heavy heart that we announce that Robert E. Lee, a 30 plus year music industry veteran, has passed away. Earlier this month, he contracted a sever lung infection, and was unable to recover from it. He passed on Jan 21, with his loving wife Kathleen and Family with him. He will be sorely missed by all that knew him. He was a giving person, witty, intelligent and a great leader, mentor and Friend.

Robert got his start in music by attending North Texas State University where he mastered the art of drumming. His band toured extensively before Robert settled into the San Francisco Bay area. He managed Swains House of Music for several years before joining the sales team at Kaman Music, where he rose to the position of senior VP sales. After leaving Kaman Music, Robert became the VP Sales at Samick corporation. After Samick, Robert did a short stint at Rhythm Band before finally joining St Louis Music as SVP Sales.
