Actor. Best known for his character Mr Hooper on Sesame Street. He has several other roles prior to that including a role in the 1st cast of "As the World Turns". Upon his death from cancer in 1982, Seseame Street aired the Emmy winning show called "Farewell, Mr Hooper," in which Big Bird drew him a picture and could not grasp that when people die they don't came back. Sesame Street producers were praised with their honest approach to Mr. Lee's passing. (bio by: Lori Richards)

I wasn't born until 1987 but when I was very young my Mom read me the book "I'll Miss You Mr. Hooper." Plus I used to watch The Sesame Street Christmas special on tape as a child. You will truly be missed.
