Obituary For Jeffrey Scott Lee

Jeffrey Scott Lee, 47, of Peabody, died on Friday, August 6, 2021, at his residence surrounded by his loving family after fighting a 15-month battle with cancer. He was born in Beverly, MA on August 21, 1973, the son of Terry and Donna (Wilchinski) Lee and had resided in Peabody most of his life.

He was a graduate of Peabody Veterans Memorial High School in 1991 and played left tackle on the undefeated Peabody High School Football team that won the Division One Super Bowl in 1990. He was so proud to have the opportunity to have played with his fellow teammates and his amazing coaches, especially Edward Nizwontowski “Coach Niz”.

Jeff grew up loving motorcycles, cars and trucks, his favorite car being the Cadillac. When he was young, he loved going to car, truck and motorcycle shows with his brother and his dad. He went on to become the proprietor of Jeff Lee’s Trucking and was a heavy equipment operator.

During his illness, he became cognizant of his love and desire to be with his family and what it meant to him. On his way back from the hospital procedures with his dad, he enjoyed listening to the Beach Boys that made him understand the harmony and the calmness he felt.

He was the nephew of Coley Lee who the Peabody Veterans High School football field is named after. His football Jersey Number 56 that he proudly wore as well as his grandfather, his dad and his uncle Coley all wore is now retired and hangs above the entrance for the players.

He is survived by his parents, Terry Lee of Peabody, and Donna Lee of Beverly, a brother and sister in law, Terence and Bobbie Lee of Peabody, a sister, Melissa Lee of Beverly, his loving companion, Dawn Evitts of Peabody and her son Anthony ,a nephew, Terence Lee of Peabody, a niece, Kaylee Lee of Beverly, his aunts and uncles Betsy (Lee) Merry and Peter Merry of Salem, , Ed and Sally Wichinski of Dover, Delaware, Bill and Judy (Wilchinski) George of Beverly, Linda Wilchinski of Rochester, NH, many cousins and extended family and so many close friends that he called his brothers and sisters. Jeff took so much pride in raising Lexington and Colten Cole after their mom, Jennifer Eppinger Cole and his fiancé companion passed in 2008. He also had a strong father-son relationship with Chris Moutsoulas.

There will be a Celebration of life to be held later. His family asks that you have a good memory of him and have a libation in his memory. Assisting the family with arrangements is the Conway, Cahill-Brodeur Funeral home of Peabody. For guest book, please visit www.ccbfuneral.com
