Little did I know that Mr. Clarence Lee, who also was a writer in engine columns in model airplane magazines, passed away on December 28, 2022 at age 99. His wife Peggy preceded his death a week prior at age 96.

http://www.mecoa.com/cflee/cflee.htm

Over a period spanning more than 50 years, Clarence Lee wrote the Engine Clinic column for RC Modeler and after for Model Airplane News. Attempted to find his obituary, but didn't know that Clarence Lee is a fairly common name, did not find a hit for him.

I found out about his passing now in MECOA, but after a search, also posted a month ago in Stunt Hangar a comment there, too.

Guess I'm starting to forget stuff. But, anyhow, thought some of you might want to know, since he was a prominent figure in model engine reviews and custom work he did on engines, too.

He had a deep knowledge about model engines and also had a service to mend engines. Once I bought a P.A.W. diesel engine and wrote a letter to Mr. Lee and asked about fuel and venturi. He was kind, and replied. Rest in peace.

Thank you, George.  I did not realize that he was still living as of 2022.  After reading the plan and building section in RCM, his column was next on the list.

I have letters from him dating back to 1974 when I was experimenting with boat engines. He did make the comment that engines in the marine environment were under the highest stress presumably due to the propeller jumping in and out of the water.
