LEE: On Tuesday, August 2, 2022, we had to say goodbye to our son, grandson, nephew and cousin, Michael James Lee, age 32 years. Mike was born May 5, 1990 to David and Cheryl, and in his short life, he faced many challenges and never complained. He also achieved many successes. As a gifted athlete, Mike succeeded in a variety of Special Olympics sports. Mike attended J.R. Reid School; Riverheights School, where he was part of the ribbon cutting ceremony for the Grand Opening of the new Life Skills Suite in 2004; and Ecole Secondaire Neelin High School, graduating in 2011. Mike is survived by his parents David and Cheryl; Auntie Lorraine Carson (Dave Baskerville) and her sons Richard Morgan, Jeffery Desender and their families; Auntie Karen (Tim Leibrecht) and her family A.J Wells and Makeena Leibrecht; Aunt Kathy's daughters Sheena and Chelsea Fisher and family; Auntie Evelyn (Peter Gauthier) and her daughter Brooklyn Gauthier; stepdad Jamie Carey; Grandma Bonnie Carey; Marilyn Flieger (Dan Piekema); Beverly (Brad Baraniuk) and their daughter Stephanie. Mike was predeceased by Papa Arvid Wells in 2000; G.G. Barbara Wells in 2001 and Auntie Kathy Fisher in 2015. Our families would like to express our heartfelt gratitude for all the sympathy and support we have received. Your kind gestures have meant the world to us during this difficult time. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Mike may be made to Special Olympics Westman, Box 20149, Brandon, MB R7A 6Y8. Michael will be laid to rest in a private graveside service at the Brandon Cemetery. You may be gone but you will never be forgotten. Rest in Peace, Mikey.
