Curtis Lee, who made it big in the early ’60s pop music world before returning home to Yuma and building decades’ worth of homes here, died Thursday after a long battle with cancer. He was 75.

Lee’s daughter, Stephanie Lee-Howell, said he will be remembered “not only as a local boy who made it big but as a true family man who believed in the small-town values and roots. He was proud of Yuma and being part of the community.”
