Michael Lee Obituary, Death – With heavy hearts, we announce the sudden passing of Michael David Lee on June 26, 2023. Michael was the beloved son of David and Sherri Lee and the cherished brother of Katie (Bill) Jaqua, Christopher (Melanie) Lee, and Ryan (fiancé Tee Pidgeon).
He held a special place in the hearts of his nephews and niece, Billy, Brooks, Brecken, Evelyn Jaqua, CJ, and Carter Lee. Michael was the dear grandson of William and the late Rosemarie Lee, and the late Richard and Lila Oloffson. He was also a fond nephew, cousin, and friend to many.
A true sports and music enthusiast, Michael’s unwavering loyalty was reserved for his beloved Cubs, Bears, and Bulls, with a special place in his heart for the Iowa Hawkeyes.
He found joy in maintaining a meticulously clean home and savoring the melodies of his favorite tunes on his back patio. Attending concerts at Wrigley and Soldier Field, where he often quoted Johnny Cash, was a source of great pleasure shared with friends and family.
His affection for his dogs, parents, and siblings ran deep, but nothing brought him more laughter and happiness than spending time with his nephews and niece.
Michael will be remembered for his kindheartedness, diligent work ethic, and generous spirit. A loyal friend, a doting uncle, a loving older brother, and a compassionate son, he exuded boundless love in every aspect of his life.
While we mourn his loss, we also celebrate the joy he brought to all those who knew him.
