Yeo’s son, Dave Lee – a Guardsman from the 1st Battalion Singapore Guards, was found to display signs of heat injury at about 8.35am on 18 Apr 2018. The Private had just completed an 8km fast march in Bedok Camp. He was pronounced dead yesterday at 5.32pm at Changi General Hospital after spending 12 days in critical condition at the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit.

Lee had just turned 19 ten days before he passed on.

Lee was an only child to Yeo, a spa manager, and her husband, property agent Dennis Lee. Neighbours told reporters that the family was close-knit.

After completing his primary school education at Rulang Primary School, secondary school education at Yuhua Secondary School and his A-Levels at Jurong Junior College, Lee enlisted into National Service on 5 Jan and completed his Basic Military Training on 11 March.

Lee’s enlistment was celebrated as a momentous occasion by his family. Today, his family members are asking “Who is the real enemy?”

Irreplaceable moment!
