I am not able to find much information about Lee Pang Kok, but in 1918 there was an article of dissolution of partnership business,  Chop Lian Huat, Tobacco Merchants at Malacca Street, Singapore. The business was dissolved by mutual consent by its former partners which included Soon Wee Joey, Lee Pang Kok and Chua Yeow Whee. When Lee Pang Kok passed away probate of his will was granted to a sole executor, Lee Siew Kow.
