Bob Lee

Bob Lee died on Sunday, August 11, near his home in West Tisbury. He was 66.

He was the beloved father of Daniel Lee. He is survived by his former wife, Marjorie Spitz, and a multitude of friends, acquaintances, and disciples.

An obituary will appear in a future edition of The Times, and plans for a memorial gathering will be announced when they are known.


  1. Such a wonderful human being, probably the smartest person I will ever know (and I am a known know-it-all), talented, funny, the truest smile, it is hard to think he is gone yet all of us who cherished him know that he remains with us. He taught me the Elizabeth Islands song, which I struggle through tears to remember right now. So glad to have been part of his birthday celebration this year with so many of his friends.

  2. Thank you Bob Lee for your calm heart and bringing me into my first WVVY 93.7 Radio show. Always loved seeing you. Rest in peace Brother.

  3. “We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.—Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
    Bob Lee was 110% spirit.

    Thank you, Bob, for blessing our lives during your earthly journey.

    Miss you, my friend.

    Catch you on the other side.

  4. I am sad. I will miss Bob very much. This is a man who knew how to have a conversation. I will miss talking with you, Bob. Your intelligence was so refreshing. Thank you for your free and generous spirit. You were always ready for the next fun thing. I love that you went out swimming! Right in your own back yard. A very Vineyard way to go. You may have appeared a laid back old hippie dippie but your core was as solid as a rock. I always appreciated your lasersharp genuine take on things. I will miss your smile, your good feeling presence on this island. Happy Journeying, Friend. Catch you later!
