The former Everton manager Gordon Lee’s cause of death has been misunderstood after Everton Football Club announced that he passed away on Tuesday (March 8, 2022) at the age of 87. May he rest in peace.

Lee held the job from 1977 to 1981, leading the team to a League Cup final, two FA Cup semi-finals, and two top-four finishes in the First Division.

The heartbreaking news was confirmed by his son Gary, who announced, “Everton have been wonderful to him and our family – please pass on our thanks for being a huge part of his journey.”

Born in Cannock in Staffordshire, Lee kicked off his playing career at Hednesford Town before entering Aston Villa in 1955. A right-back, he spent the next 11 years there, playing in their 1961 League Cup final win before ending his career with Shrewsbury.

He cut his managerial teeth at Port Vale, succeeding Stanley Matthews and guiding Vale into the Third Division. He then earned a promotion to the Second Division with Blackburn, which prompted Newcastle to secure his services in 1975.

There Are Two Gordon Lee! The Cause of Death Is Not Revealed Yet

At this time, Gordon Lee’s cause of death is not clear but some people mistakenly thought he lost his life because of lung cancer.

Lung cancer was actually the cause of the death of Eugene Gordon Lee (October 25, 1933 – October 16, 2005) was an American child actor, most notable for appearing in the Our Gang (Little Rascals) comedies as Porky from 1935 to 1939.

Two years later he made the move to Everton and signed players such as George Wood, Graeme Sharp, and Alan Irvine. He was sacked after a poor finish to the 1980-81 season and had further spells in management with Preston and KR Reykjavik.

Lee additionally stepped in as caretaker at Leicester after David Pleat was dismissed in 1991 and helped save them from relegation.

Graeme Sharp told Everton’s website: “Gordon was a massive part of my development and I always enjoyed meeting up with him later in life. I am deeply saddened by his loss and extend my sympathy to his family.”

The former Everton captain Kevin Ratcliffe, who made his debut under Lee, wrote, “Gordon loved to give young players an opportunity and I will forever be grateful that he gave me mine at Everton. He was ahead of his time with some of his coaching methods and with a bit more luck would have brought honors to the club.”
