Lawrence Edward Tee Former minister of the Carlisle Congregational Church

Lawrence Edward Tee died on March 7 at Summerville Assisted Living in Port Orange, Florida. Born in Sheringham, England, on February 15, 1915, he and his mother came to the United States shortly before his father's death in World War I. He grew up in Woburn, graduated from Gordon College in 1940 and entered the Andover Newton Theological School. After graduating in 1945, he enlisted in the U. S. Army serving in Germany and Austria during World War II.

His adult life was spent in service to various churches and communities in both New England and Florida. Dr. Tee served Carlisle Congregational Church before entering the service and returned to Carlisle after leaving the Army. It was here that Anna Johnson taught him the appropriate length for a good sermon. It was a valuable lesson that served him well throughout his years in the ministry.

Dr. Tee was retired from the Edgewater Union Church in Edgewater, Florida. He was active in volunteer work at Bert Fish Memorial Hospital and chaplain and friend to the Edgewater Police Department.

He is survived by five daughters, Alice Daisy of Concord, Massachusetts; Beth Mitchell of Winter Springs, Florida; Alberta DeSantis of Windsor, Connecticut; Virginia Tee of Jupiter, Florida; and Rebekah Tee of Houston, Texas; eight grandchildren and one great-grandson.

Patriots Day roundup

Patriots Day started out cool and wet but then improved to cloudy but comfortable. Despite the somewhat gloomy start, more than 100 residents of Carlisle and neighboring towns joined the Carlisle Minutemen on their march to the North Bridge. At the conclusion of the march, in keeping with the Carlisle Minutemen tradition, 128 trail walk medals were handed out. Marchers also had the option to put their names in a hat to win a framed drawing. The Hoffman family of Autumn Lane were the lucky winners of the framed pen and ink drawing of the Carlisle Minutemen marching through Estabrook woods, drawn and donated by Phyllis Hughes.
