Obituary of Murray Lee

Passed away peacefully after a brief stay at the Lakeridge Health Centre in Port Perry on Wednesday, April 22, 2020. He was in his 90th year. Murray leaves behind his cherished and beloved wife, Shirley (Ianson), of almost 68 years. Loving father to predeceased son Gary (Charlene), Brian (Janice) and Debbie (Mark Roundell). Proud grandfather to Kelly (Rob), Jenna (John), Joshua (Shantelle), Katelyn (Christopher), Russell (Jessica) and Tyson (Sarah) and great grandfather to Dawson, James, Julia, Harley, Samuel and twins Jacob and Patrick. Murray was predeceased by his parents Francis and Laura (Thomas) Lee. He will be missed by his siblings Annabelle (Allan Ball), George (Isabel), and Beatrice (Ted Murphy). Dear brother-in-law to Evelyn (deceased) (Keith Heron deceased) and Frances (Gordon Walker deceased). Murray always looked forward to the love and laughter shared visiting with his many nieces and nephews.


Murray was a farmer and local businessman, first as a Cattle Drover and then owner of Lee Bus Lines for many years in the Greenbank area. He was always active in the community and devoted to the Greenbank United Church. Many will have good memories related to sports, travel and friendships.


The family of Murray Lee would like to thank Dr. Merrilee Brown for her dedicated healthcare since his stroke 21 years ago. The care from doctors and nurses during his Port Perry hospital stays has been tremendous. We cannot begin to give enough thanks to all The Villa - Revera retirement home staff in Port Perry for their attentive and compassionate care from the moment our parents joined your little community.


A celebration of Murray’s life will be held at a future date. Interment Bethel Cemetery, Greenbank. If desired, memorial donations may be made by cheque to a charity of your choice. Memories, photos and condolences may be shared at
