Tribute to Howard Lee

The industry bid farewell to dedicated dairy advocate, Howard Lee who sadly passed away on his way home from a meeting of NSW Farmers on the Mid North
Coast in late November.

Mr Lee, who was born in Kempsey on 10 October 1939, was an inspirational man who was admired by many. A keen industry representative, Mr Lee was part of
the NSW Farmers Dairy Committee for many years and held several other roles with the industry body, including on the NSW Farmers Executive Committee.

Mr Lee was a passionate community leader for Kempsey. For over five years he was a member of the Mooneba-Turners Flat Rural Bush Fire Brigade, which began
with a tractor and trailer. He was also President of the Kempsey Show Committee and former director of the Kempsey Heights Bowling Club.

Colleagues at New South Wales Farmers recall Mr Lee as a gentle, smiling man and a well respected community leader. Fellow North Coast NSW Dairy Committee
member and long-time friend of Mr Lee, Julie Moore described him as a real “go-getter”.

“Howard was always looking for a way to improve things for dairy farmers and to promote the good practices of dairy. He was particularly keen to see farmers
get a better milk price,” Ms Moore said. “He was a passionate advocate. He will be greatly missed.”

On behalf of the dairy industry, ADF extends its deepest sympathies to Mr Lee’s wife Shirley as well as his friends and family.

NSW Dairy Committee member, Howard Lee is remembered as a “go-getter” with a gentle spirit.
