October 20, 1973 - July 21, 2019
With deepest sorrow, we announce that Peter Noan Lee, age 45, our beloved son, brother, uncle, and friend passed away suddenly Sunday, July 21, 2019, on Mercer Island (outside of Seattle).
Peter was born in Chicago and moved to Seattle in 1998. Peter was the son of Dr. Choong Lee and Mrs. Keum Lee of Oak Brook, IL. In addition to his parents, Peter is survived by his sisters, Sophia Roe (John) and Julia Lee Pedersen (Christian); nieces Vivienne Roe and Bianca Pedersen, nephew Carl Pedersen; and many loving aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
Peter graduated in 1991 from Hinsdale Central High School. He then earned dual Bachelor of Arts degrees in Biology and Psychology from Washington University in St. Louis, and a Master of Health Services Administration from the University of Washington. Peter worked as an Administrator at the University of Washington Medicine at Harborview for more than 12 years and was working as an investment consultant at the time of his passing.
Peter had an infectious smile and a great sense of fun and adventure, and will be greatly missed by his family and friends. A lifelong football fan, Peter adopted the Seattle Seahawks as his team second only to the Chicago Bears, and Notre Dame was his favorite college football team. He loved sports in general, and his friends truly enjoyed talking to him due to his breadth of knowledge and opinions on topics such as biotech/medical research, latest tech gadgets, and stocks. He enjoyed traveling and always knew the best food places; loved a wide range of music, fantasy football and baseball, poker, and the Chicago Blackhawks. Always a kid and kidder, he was great with children as he made them laugh with his silly jokes and games; he was “Uncle Peter” to many. He was kind, loving, and generous to all those he encountered.
