He was known as a kind and caring person who loved animals. Mike was actively engaged in various volunteer positions throughout his life, especially helping with public television fundraisers, caring for animals, and maintaining community gardens. He is survived by his brother, Patrick J. (Gail) Lee, and Mary E. (Robert) Lee-Nichols; nieces and nephews Colin, Andrea, Jayme, and Abby; Samuel and Josephine; and his most recent rescue cat, Trouble. He was preceded in death by his parents, John F.
