Peter F. Lee

December 19, 1950 — August 7, 2023

Peter F. Lee, 72, of Lake Forest, IL passed away unexpectedly on Monday August 7, 2023. Beloved husband of Jennifer (nee White).

Born December 19, 1950, in Oshkosh, WI, Peter grew up playing football, tennis and golf. He enjoyed bike riding throughout Kettle-Moraine area in his youth and driving his 1967 TR4A throughout the Chicago North Shore, as an adult. Peter attended University of Wisconsin Madison during the turbulent later ’60s and early ‘70s, then left to drive cross-country with a group of friends in a van, ending up at Haight Ashbury in San Francisco during the height of the flower power era. Peter had a passion for folk, rock, classical, world and traditional Irish music - our home was filled with music every day.

Peter is preceded in death by his parents Harry Lee and June Friedrich Schwalm, his aunts Shirley Wyman, Charlotte Lee, and his first wife Katherine (nee Johns).

Peter is lovingly remembered by his wife Jennifer (nee White), mother-in-law Dorothy White, brothers-in- law Joseph (Elizabeth) White and Michael (Holly) Johns, sister-in-law Barbara (Buff) Bevil, uncle Tom Wyman, nephews Keehan (Rebecca) White, Garrett (Anna) White, Liam (fiancé Kolby) White, and Zachary (Sonia) Johns as well as niece Caitlin Johns, cousins Bill (Beth) Wyman, Ann (Leonard) Wolf, Will (Kate) Wyman, Max (Dani) Wyman, and Kate (Chad) Durkee, other family members as well as cherished friends throughout the country.

Peter had a unique approach to life and enjoyed traveling as much as staying at home. He was known for his fashion and keen sense of style. He is missed terribly by our dog Lambeau.

Peter will be inurned at Lakeview Memorial Park in Oshkosh at a private service and remembered through a Celebration of Life at his home in Lake Forest, dates TBD.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Carmel Catholic High School, Mundelein IL.
