Rising from similarly humble beginnings, Lee and Dee met by chance, unaware of the rich future fate had in store for them. Following this chance encounter, they soon married. With wide eyes and stubborn ambition, they went about building a better future for themselves and their loved ones. Over the next eight years, they would bring three beautiful daughters into the world: Sandra, Teresa, and Kimberly. It’s little surprise that all three daughters would later establish themselves as successful businesswomen in their own right.
After dutifully serving in the US Army, Lee pursued a series of odd jobs, to provide for his family. In a strange twist of fate, Lee was offered work as a glazer (which he later discovered had nothing to do with doughnuts). Around the same time, Dee passed her final exam to become a certified nurse. Against all odds, the Hoovers set themselves up for success.
