Lee Wilcox

Sunday, October 15, 2017

Wilmot, N.H. — Lee Wilcox, father, husband, brother, friend, dog lover, baseball coach, skier, athlete, star executive, died on Oct. 9 2017 at far far too young an age of 50.  Despite his life being tragically short, he lived the years he was blessed with in happiness.

Lee was born to Barbra Curtis and William Richard Wilcox on  Aug.4 1967. He was ambitious and hardworking and after a successful academic and athletic career at Waltham High school he attended Northwestern University where he walked onto the Division 1 baseball team and joined the ski team.  Following his graduation in 1989, Lee worked at Chase Manhattan Bank. Lee then moved to New Orleans where he began a marriage, a family and a successful career. Ultimately, Lee returned to New England and worked in sales for Olympus America.  His achievements with Olympus were numerous, including multiple years of top sales and top sales manager, finishing his career with Olympus as a regional vice president.

Lee’s life was full of achievement, loving family, coaching baseball, enjoying his children’s ski racing, correcting grammar and vocabulary and sharing time with friends. Lee was excited by any new business idea, earning him the nickname “Limo Lee”.  Imagining a superhero who could save you from miserable allergies, he coined the term “Antihistiman”.  Lee was exceedingly intelligent and gifted with numbers and calculations.  He was a beautiful skier; many admired his technical ability.

Lee is survived by too many people who are heartbroken at losing him; his immediate family: his wife, Terri Wilcox, his daughter, Kelsey, his son, Colby.  He is also survived by his brother William R. Wilcox, his brothers in law Kip Fajans, Eric Fajans and sister in law Cheryl Fajans Gibbons and their spouses and families.  And then there is his second family, John and Trish, Ashley and Laurie, Cheryl and Scott, Betsy and Bill and everyone else who enjoyed a good sunset on the deck.

A service will be held on Wednesday Oct. 18, 2017 at 11 a.m. at the New London Historical Society New London, N.H. All are welcome.  In lieu of flowers, please make donations to support YMCA Camp Coniston PO Box 185 Grantham NH 03753 or coniston.org.
