Richard B. Lee \r\n1950-2021 \r\nPORTLAND--Richard "Mouse" Lee, 71, of Portland, died Friday, November 5, 2021, at home. \r\nHe was born on June 26, 1950, the son of John and Shirley (Bachelder) Lee.

He loved music, children, underdogs, leisure, and justice. A few of his favorite things were grabbing a bite with his son Joe, being mistaken for Jackson Browne, playing softball and pool (where he added to his collection of nicknames as "Shot Maker"), and most recently golf, where he was a member at Riverside Golf Course and carried many a team to victory.\r\nRichard was predeceased by his parents. \r\nHe is survived by his life partner MaryJeanne Sacco, son Joseph Kosnow, brothers John(Slim) Lee and wife Cheryl, Robert(Fang) Lee and wife Cathy Clark, stepchildren Laurie and Anthony Sacco, 8 grandchildren, 4 great-grandchildren, sister-in-law Kathy Lee, and a wealth of adoring nieces, nephews, and cousins.\r\nVisiting hours will be at the Conroy-Tully Walker South Portland Chapel, 1024 Broadway in South Portland on Friday, November 12 from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm. \r\nA graveside service will be held at Calvary Cemetery on Wednesday, November 17 at 1:00 pm.
