PROF. LEE’S BURIAL MESSAGE FOR HIS FATHER
It has pleased the Holy Triune God of life and death to take my father, William Sydney Lee, to Heaven. This occurred at about ten p.m., on the Lord’s Day, 17th July 1994; in the age of 85 years, 9 months, and 18 days.
Uncle Syd, as his dear friends in Barrydale (South Africa) called him, was born at East London in South Africa on 29th September 1908. After his mother became widowed when he and his sister Doris were still tiny, the family went to his mother’s country Britain, where the toddlers grew up. There he later married Alice Maud Smith (Auntie Maud, as the Barrydalers call her).
