ALBION, MAINE--Ralph A. Lee left his earthly home on Sunday, Sept. 29, 2013. Ralph was born in Pittsfield, Maine, ME on Nov. 6, 1922, the son of Amos J. Lee and Leola Daggett Lee. Amos moved his family from Pittsfield to Albion, Maine in 1930, and Ralph graduated from Besse High School, class of 1941. Ralph was a member of the Greatest Generation and proudly served his nation, joining the Army Air Corps in Jan. 1943, and serving in the Pacific Theater in the communications field until his discharge in Jan. 1946. He always said his best Christmas present ever was when he boarded the ship in Japan to sail home in 1945. Upon his return home he went to work with his brother, Ellis, for the State of Maine Highway Dept. and later went to work for Lee Bros. Construction Company when they were established in 1947, working there until 2001. With the work ethic of most of his generation, he was excited to go to work for Lakeview Lumber Co, where he was employed until Jan. 2011. Ralph was a long time member of the Central Lodge #45 A.F. & A.M in China, Maine and a member of the American Legion Grover-Hinckley Post #14 in Fairfield, Maine. Ralph married Dorothy Robbins on Oct. 11, 1947 and they spent nearly 66 wonderful years together. Ralph and Dot took many trips together on the Main Line bus tours; the two most memorable trips were to the Canadian Rockies and the Calgary Stampede and to the dedication of the World War II Memorial in Washington, DC. Ralph also had many fond memories of the places he visited when visiting his daughter in Georgia and his daughter when she lived in Michigan. Ralph was predeceased by five brothers, Ellis, Frank, Ancil, Clifford and Errol; and two sisters, Winnifred Eames and Elma Davis. Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Dot; two daughters, Bonnie Williams and her husband, John, of Byron, GA and Rhonda Miller of Manchester, Maine; four grandchildren, Toby Smith and his wife, Winnie, of Warner Robins, GA, Molly Kay Warmelink and her husband, Mike, of Fishers, IN, Garrett Gustafson and his wife, Danielle of Brunswick, Maine and Katie Haley of Fryeburg, Maine; five great grandchildren, Hunter and Rebecca Smith, Michael Warmelink, and Ella and Hannah Gustafson; several sisters and brothers-in-law; and numerous nieces and nephews. His favorite "boy", Roscoe, will miss him greatly.
