Christopher Lee

August 26, 1970 — June 7, 2021

Christopher J. Lee
Christopher John Lee died on June 7, 2021 suddenly
of a heart attack at age 50. Chris was born on August
26, 1970 to Jack and Jean Lee and raised in Marlboro,
Massachusetts. His greatest joy in life was being a
husband and father. He found the love of his life
volunteering in Selma, Alabama with the Edmundite
Mission Corps and continued to be very involved with
this mission as Vice-Chair of the Board of the
Edmundite Southern Missions. He graduated from St.
Michaels College in Colchester, VT in 1993, where he
found his lifelong crew of friends. Chris married
Katherine Carrane Lee (Katie) on July 6, 1996 in
Colchester, VT, and they began their beautiful married
journey together, starting in Vermont and finally arriving
in Louisville, CO in November of 2000 where they
settled and raised their three children, twin sons, Jack
and Owen, and daughter, Lily. Chris loved being a
family man, whether it was spending time with his
family at home, on the bike trails with Owen, cheering
on Jack at his baseball games, watching the Marvel
Cinematic Universe with Lily, having a drink with Katie
on the back deck, or a family trip to Disney World or
even Ikea, he was happiest just being by their sides.
Only second to his family was Chris’s passion for all
things active. The more rigorous the climb the better.
From riding up Flagstaff mountain to the Wednesday
morning BOD rides in Louisville with the Cycle Cross
enthusiasts, he was a tremendous athlete and
competitor and the absolute best companion to have
on the roads or trails, always leading the way and
encouraging others to keep going.
He dedicated his professional life to helping others
when he chose a career in healthcare that spanned
over 25 years. Not only was he a whiz with
technology, but he had the most sincere nature, always
committed to his staff and concerned for the wellbeing
of others. His healthcare career began with IDX
Healthcare Solutions in Vermont which led him to his
tenure at SCL Health, which included opening the
Medical Imaging Department at Good Samaritan
Hospital in Lafayette, CO. The past five years he
poured his heart into leading The Colorado Visiting
Nurses Association as President and CEO, which
gratefully led him to embarking on an exciting new
chapter in his life, creating his business, Pro Solution
Health, as an independent healthcare consultant.
Chris is survived by his wife, Katie; his three children,
Jack, Owen and Lily; his parents Jack and Jean Lee;
his brother Michael Lee (Chip); and his local family by
marriage, Molly Carrane Pieper (Bryan); his niece
Maggie and nephews, Jimmy and Rory.
Please think of Chris when you raise a glass, go out for
a ride, cheer your kids on at a game, watch a good
movie and look up at the stars, he’s always with us in
our hearts.
