THE REV. BERNARD STANLEY LEE Peacefully at home on Saturday, May 8, 2004, the Rev. Bernard Stanley Lee ("Bernie") devoted husband of Isobel, proud father of: Jack, Eric and Kenneth (Winnipeg), Norman (Prescott) and Haynes (Kingston) Grandad to Thomas and Spencer with their mother Sheila at Spencerville, and his brother Tom and many relatives in England. Born in England on May 10, 1923, Bernie served in the Royal Navy during the Second World War, emigrating to Canada in 1952. Isobel joined him in Toronto 1953 where they were married, celebrating their 50th Anniversary last year. From 1954 to 1958 Bernard was Missionary-Teacher at the Gibson Reserve, Bala, ON, followed by nine years at Norway House Residential School as Principal. Then came three years of theology, with ordination in 1970. He served on Pastoral Charges at Stony Mountain, Little Britain, MB and Thunder, Bay, ON. Always active in Presbytery, mostly with Mission and Service, he also served as Secretary of Selkirk Presbytery for two years and was well known for his humourous style of writing up the Minutes! Prior to retirement he spent one year on exchange ministry in New Zealand. Bernie and Isobel came to Kingston in 1996 and are fondly associated with Glenburnie United Church.
