A FORMER policeman has paid tribute to a “perfect gentleman” who died when his car was in collision with a lorry.
Tony Green, of Red Hill Road, Hadleigh, said the death of 80-year-old Kee Wah Lee was a sad loss for the whole town.
Mr Lee, of Dyer Court, Hadleigh is believed to have opened the Jasmine House takeaway in High Street around 30 years ago.
Mr Green, who was a police officer at the time, said: “I always found him to be friendly, honest and the perfect gentleman.
“I also found that the whole family - mother, sons and daughter - were people who were highly respected in the town.”
Mr Lee died after the collision between his Mercedes A Class and a seven-and-a-half tonne Iveco tipper lorry on the A120 in Essex on Monday at about 3.30pm near Great Bromley.
