Support Aliya & family with the loss of Chris Lee

Donation protected

On behalf of Aliya Dhanani, it is with unimaginably heavy hearts that we share the loss of our dear husband, father, brother, son, and friend, Chris Lee, who suddenly passed away on October 24, 2022.

Left to cherish his memory are his loving wife, Aliya, and their three beautiful children, Zain, Daya, Rafa and an extended caring community of family and friends.

Chris was a bright light, full of personality - his zest for life and a positive outlook (along with his clothes) brightened every room. An amazing athlete, a charming dinner guest and a brilliant geologist, Chris was up for anything...and always excelled at all endeavours.

If a life can be measured in love, then Chris - while only 52 years young was rich and full. This tragic loss breaks our hearts, but we are grateful for our time with him and the beautiful memories that will sustain us as we all heal from losing Chris too soon.

A GoFundMe has been set up to help Aliya and the kids with immediate needs and expenses. Please share this link with everyone who loved our California cool Chris Lee and his family.
