Eddie Lee was born June 13, 1950 in Forest City to Billy and Grace (Leuwerke) Schuver. He was raised and educated in Kanawha, graduating in 1968.
Eddie married Ramae Busick on March 22, 1969 at the Kanawha United Methodist Church. The couple was blessed with children Shane, Chrystal and Casey. They made their home in Belmond before moving to rural Goodell in 1971. In 2018 Eddie and Ramae moved to Belmond.
Eddie was employed at Winnebago Industries from 1969-71, Central Soya from 1971-77, and then became self-employed. He began working for Sparboe Farms in 1987, then for Iowa Select Farms until his retirement in 2014.
