February 3, 1969 - January 28, 2024
In loving memory ~
A man who loved his life, his career, adventures, and most of all, his family and friends.
Lee leaves behind his soulmate and loving wife Kim, parents Bud and Nadine, children Brianna and Dylan, step-daughter Josie, sister Mahri (Rob), brother Jamie (Tara), niece Elle and Nicola, nephews Daniel, Matthew, and Jack.
Lee was born and raised in Nanaimo. He graduated from NDSS in 1987 and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of British Columbia in 1991.
Lee loved music and worked at Ferguson Music, the family business for many years. He later became a Certified Financial Planner (CFP) and built a successful practice with Freedom 55 Financial (Canada Life). A few years ago he partnered up with Coralee Katzberg under Benson View Private Wealth. Throughout his career, Lee was recognized by his colleagues for his leadership and excellence in the business.
Lee generously gave his time and energy to all those he touched, and he will always be remembered for the impact he had on his friends, family, and colleagues. Among Lee's many community service contributions, he was a member of the Nanaimo Serauxman Club as well as a leader and advocate for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JRDF).
Lee was a genuine friend to everyone, a mentor to many, and a joyful inspiration to be around. He was an exceptional person with a zest for life, a passion for personal development, and a very long bucket list that he was actively checking off. He was a very fun and funny man that touched so many with his kind and generous spirit.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation are appreciated. https://www.jdrf.ca/give/
A Lee Odgers Memorial Scholarship has also been established with the Nanaimo Ladysmith Schools Foundation. https://www.canadahelps. org/en/dn/24199
A celebration of life will be held at the Beban Park Social Centre in Nanaimo on Sunday, February 18th at 1 P.M.
Always loved, never forgotten...
Until we meet again.
