Private Funeral Services for Late Dr. S. Lee Honey

{Welland Tribune  Sept. 13, 1975}

Private funeral services were held at 2 p.m. today from the Lampman Funeral Chapel at Fenwick for Dr. S. Lee Honey, DDS, BSc., DDPh., who died suddenly at his residence on Canboro Road, Fenwick on Saturday evening, in his 86th year.

Still actively engaged in his chosen field, had filled appointments on Friday and enjoyed his usual daily walk early Saturday.

He was born in Mitchell, Ont., where he received his elementary school education, then moved to Port Perry, where he graduated from high school. He joined the forces in the First World War and won his commission in the field. On leaving the army Mr. Honey entered dental college where he graduated in 1923. Dr. Honey established his old private practice in Timmins, Ont., where he worked for 20 years, retiring at the end of that time to enter the University of Toronto, where he graduated with his degree in public health.

Dr, Honey was a pioneer in the field of public health, the first dental doctor to enter that field. He came to Welland on the inception of the Welland Public Health Unit in 1943, where he was engaged until his retirement three years ago. He has since carried on a private practice  at his home in Fenwick.

He is survived by his wife Winnifred Hardy Honey; one daughter, Mrs W..L.Allemand (Barbara) of Toronto; and one son, Donald, of Montreal. Also surviving are three brothers, Dr. Morley Honey, Toronto; Dr. Ralph Honey, Peterborough; and Harold Honey of Port Perry; and one sister, Mrs. J.H. Hardy of Port Perry. There are four grandchildren. Dr. Honey was predeceased by one brother, Lawson.
