The Honorable Peter Boyd Saydee

It is with regret and sorrow, yet with gratitude to God Almighty, we, the Saydee family announce the death of our beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle, Sir Knight Peter Boyd Saydee. This sad event occurred on November 1, 2019 in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey, USA. PBS as he was commonly called will be missed dearly and his memories will be cherished forever.

For over 60 years, Sir Knight Peter Boyd Saydee dedicated his career as a public servant of the Liberian Government in many capacities at the Executive Mansion, Freeport of Liberia and the Capitol Building (just to name a few). His career spans from the Tubman to Samuel K Doe administrations. He was a devoted Catholic and one of the founding members of Saint Kizito’s Parish. Peter joined Commandery #441 of Saint Kizito’s Parish, the Ancient & Noble Order of the Knights of St. John International in 1997 and served as the treasurer and later when he migrated to the United States of America transferred his membership to Commandery #676, Trenton New Jersey until his demise.

Sir Knight Peter Boyd Saydee is survived by his wife, Cecelia J. Saydee, his sister Beatrice S Whiterspoon and children: Patricia S Harris, Sweettaste Munah Doe, Fatu Korgar, Princess Saydee, Alice Mahawa Saydee, Peter Boye Saydee, Philip Boyd Saydee, Fancia Saydee and thirteen grandchildren, 3 great-grand child and a host of nieces, nephews, three sons-in-law, one daughters-in-law, relatives and friends who dearly love him.
