Lee Milan was born on June 16, 1942, in Sanborn, the son of Johannes Cornelius and Cynthia (Mars) Hofland. He was raised in Alton and attended the Newkirk High School.

On June 15, 1962, he married Elaine Leora Kruid in Ireton. They made their home in Orange City, where they were members of the Trinity Reformed Church.

Throughout his life, Lee also worked for Bloemendaal Hatchery, Smith & Wesson, International Harvester, the City of Orange City, and spent thirty years working in the maintenance department at Northwestern College in Orange City, before retiring in 2015.

Survivors include his wife of more than 56 years; his four children, David Hofland, of Cedar Rapids; Laura, and her husband, Scott McKee, of Hawarden; Greg Hofland, and his wife, Sarah, of Fairfax; and Eric Hofland, of Orange City; seven grandchildren, Justin Hofland, Courtney McKee, Zachary McKee, Evan Hofland, Makayla Hofland, Anika Hofland, and Taya Hofland; and four siblings, James Hofland, and his wife, Anjean, of Modesto, California; Greeta, and her husband, Adrian Kruid, of Sioux Center; Linda Bouwman, of Pella; and Joel Hofland, and his special friend, Jean Driesen, of Hawarden.
