Herbert Bing-Leung Lee, of Tinton Falls, NJ, went to be with the Lord on January 30, 2022. He was born in Hong Kong on October 10, 1934, the second son of Woon Foo Lee and Yee Yong Lai. After graduation from Ying Wah College, he worked for the Kowloon Railroad in Hong Kong, where his duties included being a conductor. He graduated from Howard University with a B.S. in electrical engineering.

He was an electrical engineer at Central Hudson Gas and Electric Corporation in Poughkeepsie, NY, and while there, earned an MS degree in electrical engineering from Union College. In his spare time, Herbert enjoyed traveling the world with his wife, Assunta, cultivating a large vegetable garden, fishing in Brown’s Pond, and playing golf with friends. Herbert is survived by his wife of 54 years, the former Assunta Wong; daughter Dr. Andrea Lee (Syracuse, NY), son Vernon (Jupiter, FL), siblings Frank (Julia, Cumberland Park, South Australia), Margaret Chui (Charles, Menlo Park, CA), Cecelia Ku (Hilary, Castle Hill, New South Wales) and Thomas (Fiona, Rockville, MD), as well as many nieces, nephews and friends.
