Burton J. Lee, III

It is with sadness that we share news of the passing of MBL Trustee Emeritus Burton J. Lee, III who died on November 25, 2016 in Vero Beach, FL at the age of 86. The MBL flag will be lowered in his memory.

Dr. Lee served as a MBL trustee from 1994 to 2002 and was named an emeritus member in 2013. He spent much of his career as a physician at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. In 1989, Dr. Lee was appointed Physician to the President in the administration of George H.W. Bush.

Dr. Lee is survived by his wife, three children, and five grandchildren. He is also survived by three stepdaughters and their children, as well as two sisters. A memorial service will be held at a later date. Any contributions should be made in Dr. Lee’s name to the Whole Family Health Center in Vero Beach.
