Once wedded to Nature there is no divorce - separate her you may and hide yourself amongst the flesh-pots of London, but the wild will keep calling and calling forever in your ears. You cannot escape the "little voices". - Frank Wild

Lee Rice - Hope Bay - 1957

Folks it is with great sorrow that I inform you of the passing of one of your members. I am friend of the family and wish only to inform you of Lee's passing so that it may be recorded for posterity sake. Lee was a teacher and mentor and suffered greatly in his final years.

RICE, Lee - Passed away at Casselholme on Mon. July 5, 2010, at the age of 82, after a lengthy illness (PSP-Progressive Supranuclear Palsy). Born and raised in Northern Ireland, Lee passionately loved sailing, skiing, storytelling, world travel and education. He was the head of the Geography Department at Widdifield Secondary School until 1987. Most beloved experience was as leader of the British Antarctic Survey Team from 1956-1959. His stories of sledging and penguins were memorable. Lee was predeceased by wife Margaret, survived by wife Elizabeth; father of Stephanie (Toronto), Suzanne (Oshawa), Donald (Whitby) and Katy (Rob-Toronto); grandfather of Jesse, Jacob and Finnegan and brother of Rosemary and Campbell in Northern Ireland. Sadly missed by friend Alain Thibault, Minh Huonj, Clara and Maria. At Lee's request there will be no visitation or service. A party of slides, Irish music and stories to celebrate Lee's life was held at Emmanuel Church on Sat. July 17th from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. for family, friends, former students and colleagues.
