LEE - Peter Macdonald, 67, passed away peacefully at home with his family by his side from his service-related disabilities and metastatic esophageal cancer on Saturday, September 28, 2019. Despite a period of failing health, Peter maintained a positive attitude throughout and reminded everyone of how grateful he was to be spending time with his family.
Born June 15, 1952, in Lynn, Mass., the son of Phyllis (LeBlanc) and Donald Macdonald, Peter spent most of his childhood in Alton, N.H., and was a resident of Lee for 34 years.

Throughout his life, Peter spent a notable amount of time volunteering. Most recently he was providing housing to homeless veterans at the Veteran Resort Chapel in Lee.
