Belinda was the girlfriend of Lee Greck at the time of his untimely death on 28 September 2013.
This memorial has been placed at the intersection of Old Lilypool Rd and Pacific Hwy, South Grafton.
Lee Greck was nicknamed ‘Matthew Flinders’ by Belinda and her family because Lee was always off exploring on his motor bike.
At the top of the monument is Lee ( Greck ), Triumph ( his motor bike ) Bel ( Belinda ).
A lovely monument by a lovely person who loved the man deeply.

On Saturday 28 September 2013, about 6.40pm, retired NSW Police Officer Lee George GRECK was riding his motor cycle and stopped at the ‘T’  intersection of Old Lilypool Rd and the Pacific Hwy, Grafton.  He was seen to look in both directions before pulling out into the path of a north bound vehicle which was travelling upon the Pacific Hwy at an estimated 100kph.

As a result of the impact, Lee died at the scene.

Lee, being born on 5 March 1961, was 52 years of age and worked at various locations including Cabramatta, Fairfield, Wollongong and was last stationed at Batemans Bay from where he retired, after serving 22 years in “the job” on the 11 May 2000.

At the time of Lee’s death, he was living in Glenugie, a small hamlet near Grafton.

Lee joined the NSWPF as a Police Cadet, number 3350, on the 4 July 1977, and did his training at the Redfern Police Academy, Sydney, NSW.

Lee was also the victim of a common assault about 6 months earlier which recently failed at court.


A funeral service will be held to honour Lee on Tuesday 28 September 2013, from 11.30am at the Holy Family Catholic Church, at the intersection of Vincent & Green St’s, Ulladulla with Police Guard of Honour from Shoalhaven Police.

    Such a lovely tribute Belinda. Sorry we didn’t meet at the funeral. The last time we caught up with Lee was in Singapore when we had a family barbecue and a few drinks. He will be sadly missed by our family and his many friends. We will now have somewhere to visit whenever we travel north.

    I worked with Lee at Fairfield Police Station in the early 1980s. He was a good Policeman and a good man.

  • Ollie & Joan Mason

    Lee was our neighbor at Glenugie, he was a sincere and good man. We will miss him.

  • Such a beautiful boy! The photos show Lee just as I remember him. We worked many shifts together at Wollongong station in the early to mid ’80’s. I will remember him as a fun loving, little-bit-shy, honourable comrade.
