EAST MACHIAS – Donald Chester Lee Jr., age 65, went to be with the Lord on October 16th, 2019, with his family by his side.
He was born in Lincoln, on February 7th, 1954, son of Charlene (Batchelder) Madore and the late Donald Chester Lee Sr.
Donald was a logger for many years. A very nice man and a hard worker. He worked in the woods with his Dad as a kid, and continued to work in woods the rest of his life. Until the last part of this life, he worked part time, for the Town of Machias, with Denny and Patrick. And he would want me to mention his best friend, Pat Ward.
Donald was happily married to Carlene (Ackley) Lee, for 40 years. He is survived by his wife, Carlene; his mother, Charlene Madore; his son, Michael Lee and partner, Lisa; daughters, Kisha and partner, Kenny; Kim, husband, Scott, and son, Fred, and wife, Angie Davidson. Five brothers: Gary, Brent, Dale, Scott, and his wife, Darlene; Raymond, and partner, Laura. He is survived by a sister and by two sisters-in-law, Carolyn, and her husband, Mike Dennison, and Nancy, and her husband, Mike Morse. His father-in-law, Bruce Coffin, and by seven grandchildren and five great grandchildren.
Donald was predeceased by his father, Donald Sr.; step-mother, Marie; step-father, Gilman Madore; mother-in-law, Blanche (Matthews) Coffin; and grandmother, Lena Batchelder.
We would like to thank the staff and doctors from Downeast Community Hospital and Eastern Maine Medical Center, for all prayers, food, and cards. God Bless You All! A memorial service will begin at 2:00 PM, Tuesday, July 7, 2020, at the East Machias Municipal Building.
