YEE - Henry L. S. January 25, 2016, age 90, beloved husband of the late Katharina (nee Schnerr) Yee; loving father of Yvonne Yee and Christine (Augusto) Pavon. Henry was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. He served in the U.S. Air Force from 1945-1949 and met his wife, Kathe, while stationed in Germany.
