He was born August 22, 1955 in El Dorado, AR to the late Peggy and CD Cyphers. His many accomplishments began with graduating from El Dorado High School in 1973. He then went on to attend Hendrix College finishing with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology in 1977. Before deciding to attend Vet School, he took a few years off to farm tomatoes and soy beans with his dear brother Andy. He graduated Louisiana State University with a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 1985. He and his first wife Viki (a fellow classmate) married after graduation and moved to Hot Springs. They opened Cyphers Veterinary Hospital together in 1987 at 111 Temperance Hill Rd, which they owned and operated until selling the practice in 2011 (now Temperance Hill Animal Hospital). Shortly after moving to Hot Springs, Lee began his long tenure with Oaklawn Race Track serving as their track veterinarian from 1990 until he died. He loved this job and all of the friends he made there, the best of which was his wife Kristi. They shared a wonderful life together for over 20 years. Lee enjoyed all things outdoors, especially camping and bass fishing on Lake Degray with his family and friends. Lee and Kristi loved camping at Lake Degray so much that they would regularly stay the maximum allowed 2 weeks per month. He loved to fry fish and deer steak for his crowd and was always the life of any party. He is preceded in death by his parents, and two brothers Steve and Chuck Cyphers. Survivors include his wife and best friend Kristi; children, Morgan Lee (Summer) Cyphers, Margaret “Meggy” Beatrice (Joseph) Boone, the mother of his children, Viki Cyphers, and Scotty (Grace) Casteel; grandchildren, Noah and Emmie Casteel; siblings, Kay (Andy) Cyphers Garison, Andy Cyphers, and Dan (Amy) Cyphers, DDS; and extended family and many friends.
