Ralph O. Lee, 80, of Warren, Pa., passed away on April 29, 2023, at the Kinzua Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center in Warren.
Ralph was born on August 29, 1942, in Warren, the son of the late Arthur and Evelyn Frampton Lee. After graduation, Ralph joined the U.S. Army, where he learned Diesel Mechanics and was stationed in Germany during the Vietnam War. He worked as a diesel mechanic at Refiner’s Transport and later at Keystone Subaru and Midtown Motors in the Detail Department. Ralph was an avid hunter and enjoyed trapshooting at Pine Grove Sportsman’s Club. Years ago, he was a member of the Knightriders motorcycle club. He was a well-known pitcher for many years and played softball in the Warren Rec league. In Ralph’s spare time he liked to do woodworking (especially cornhole boards), play poker online and with friends, and he also enjoyed going to Stateline Speedway and other dirt track races. Ralph took pride in his home on Weiler Rd and loved to take care of his lawn. He especially enjoyed his family and many friends.
Ralph is survived by his wife of 57 years, Karen Anderson Lee; two children, Jason M. Lee, and Ritchie Lee and his wife Terrie; and several nieces and nephews.
In addition to his parents Ralph was preceded in death by four brothers, and three sisters.
The family would like to give a special thank-you to John and Diane Geiger for their love and support.
