Arthur Lee Vaulk, 85, formerly from Pensacola, Florida, passed peacefully into heaven at his daughter’s home in Ormond Beach, Florida, on August 21, 2021, with his family by his side. Lee was born in Cleveland, Ohio on April 24, 1936, to Arthur and Katherine Vaulk. He graduated from The Catholic High School of Pensacola and later received a bachelor’s degree from the Florida Atlantic University. He was an incredibly, loving father and enjoyed going to reunions with his friends he met while serving for six years in the United States Air Force. He enjoyed volunteering at the divisions of elections in Opa Locka and the United States census for many years. He received several commendations from the mayor and city of Opa Locka for being an “unselfishly giving” outstanding citizen. He was an accountant who worked many decades completing income taxes in south Florida.

Lee was preceded in death by his father, Arthur Vaulk, mother, Katherine L. (Boutwell) Vaulk and sister, Susanna Vaulk Smith. He is survived by his son, Evan Vaulk, and grandchildren Andrew, Jennifer and Casey, his daughter and her husband, Lucia and Ronald Knowles, and grandchildren Aaron, Benjamin, and Elizabeth, his daughter and her husband, Katherine and Michael Munn, and grandchildren Thomas and Katrina, and his son and his wife, Arthur II and Cristina Vaulk, and grandchildren Cristian and Gabriel, and 5 great-grandchildren.

    I served with Lee during much of his time in the Air Force. Lee was 5 years older than me...just this cool guy who seemed unflappable. Always with a smile on his face, he made quick friends with everyone. After our electronics training in Mississippi, we transferred to Turkey where we roomed together for 18 months. After Turkey, we both transferred to Germany. He was like a big brother to me. When I got married, I asked Lee to be my Best Man. I never told Lee how much I looked up to him during those early years. Why is it that some of us go through life with these thoughts unsaid? Over the years, we would occasionally catch up with each other, usually around the holidays. Though we never saw each other after Germany, I remain proud to call Lee my friend.
