It is with extreme sadness that we write to tell you friends, that Sir Christopher Lee passed away on SUNDAY 7th June at 8.30am at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London, after being hospitalised for respiratory problems and heart failure. The family gave permission for the announcement of Lee passing to be released to press agencies this morning. Christopher Lee was 93. Our thoughts are with Sir Christopher's wife Gitte and daughter Christina.
Sir Christopher Frank Carandini Lee, CBE, CStJ 1922 - 2015. RIP.
