Mr. Lee was our 'form master' in Wong Shiu Chi Secondary School, NT, Hong Kong in 1962. I believe it was his first teaching post. He had to travel for over an hour daily to come to the school. He was very kind and modest. His Chinese hand-writing was unique and we were ignorant at the time. It was a very special style which only a few had perfected. He loved his students and invited some students to visit his parent's home in Cheung Chau Island during the holidays. Mr. Lee, you are always in our hearts.

I had known the kind and gentle "uncle" Lee since I was a child. At this time of loss, our thoughts and prayers are with "auntie" Lee, Jason and family.

I am deeply saddened to hear the loss of a well-respected friend. I had benefitted much from Mr Lee's kindness and generosity ever since his days in the HKU Library and was greatly impressed by his rich knowledge, enthusiasm and talented works in Chinese literature and calligraphy. I will always remember our happy times with Mr Lee, his kindness and gentle demeanor.

My heartfelt condolences to Mrs Lee and your family for your loss.

I have not known him for a long time, but I was honoured to get to know him and his astonishing knowledge and passion around the Chinese history. A great contributor to the UBC Asian Library Chinese Collection. He will be missed very much. Please accept my deepest condolences. Hana Kim (Former Head, UBC Asian Library)

My fond memories of Lee Sir well started decades ago when I first joined the HKUAA BC. His tender smile, his gentle words, his calligraphic skills, his Chinese painting talents, his lantern riddles, his slender figure vigorously playing table tennis all formed part of my earliest impressions associated with the HKUAA BC. He was an ardent supporter of the HKUAA BC and attended as many of our functions as possible, with Beatrice by his side most of the time.

In recent years I loved to debate with him and teased him over many things, especially his views over China and Hong Kong. Although every time we ended up having to agree to disagree with each other, both he and I knew that he was well respected and deeply loved, all the same.

Dear Beatrice,

On behalf of our Association, I would like to send our most sincere condolences to you and your family.

We are saddened, but comforted by the warm and fond memories of the happy times with Lee Sir that we are so fortunate to have in the past decades.

He will always live in our hearts.
