Hedger Kam Loong Lee, was born on March 30, 1977 in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia to Sharon and Raymond Lee. He attended primary school in Petaling Jaya, and excelled in language, speaking Cantonese, Mandarin, Malaysian, and English.
He moved to Sacramento, with his mother in 1992. He was saved and baptized during his time meeting with the church in Sacramento, and attended young people conferences and trainings at Alpha House. He attended Sacramento High school, followed by Sacramento City College, and Sacramento State; receiving an associate of arts degree, and a bachelor’s degree in anthropology. He was subsequently employed as an archeological anthropologist, inspecting government projects to protect artifacts. In 1999, he met the love of his life, Mariah Alcala, and they were blessed with two children, Matisse, and Felix.
Hedger loved to travel, he has traveled with his mother Sharon, and his aunt to Australia, and to Hong Kong, and he and Mariah traveled throughout South East Asia before settling and starting a family.
Hedger loved collecting different rocks, obsidian being his favorite, as he used it to form different aborigine tools and spear heads, expanding his knowledge of native Americans and their life style.
Another interest was cooking, he loved to cook, especially Chinese cuisine, helping his mother in the kitchen.
His step-father, Kenneth, relied on him for help doing chores that he could no longer perform: everything from cleaning gutters and painting, to working on cars and helping with yard work.
He loved his family, adoring his beautiful wife and two wonderful children. He was a loving father and husband, and helped in the care of the children. He unselfishly helped others, by delivering donated food to the elderly and needy in his neighborhood. He also helped in aiding his wife’s grandmother while she fought cancer.

    Hedger was a great neighbor, totally devoted to his family, but always willing to give of himself to help his neighbors. He was a mainstay of the neighborhood food distribution started by another neighbor. We shall miss his gentle presence in our lives.

    Hedger will be missed. He was one of the most easy going and humble people I have had the good fortune to know. We shared a few anthropology classes at CSUS, and later worked on several field projects together. Hedger was a stellar archaeologist. He cared about people…both past and present. I have many fond memories of our time shared in the field. I offer my condolences to his family and friends during this difficult time.

    Hedger was the first person I met at Sacramento City College in the summer of 1997. He annoyed me the first week or so I knew him, but later we became very good friends and transferred to Sacramento State in the spring of 1998. Hedger was a loyal friend. He had a great heart and was very passionate about life. I’ll miss you Hedger. RIP my friend.
