Lee Thomas Arbogast, 23, a resident of Beverly, passed away Wednesday April 10, 2013, in Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown as result of injuries sustained in a construction accident.
He was born May 15, 1989, at Warrenton, Va., a son of Tim Arbogast of Beverly and Cheryl Gibson Arbogast of Beverly.

Lee was a graduate of Elkins High School with the class of 2007 and was employed by Residential Creations. He was a member of Beverly Volunteer Fire Department and loved to ride four-wheelers, camp, work on his truck and small engines. There wasn't anything that Lee couldn't fix.
