Lee Gregory Obituary

Lee Anthony Gregory, of Mt. Lebanon, passed away on Monday, December 18, 2023, at the age of 76.

Husband of 53 years to Joan M. Gregory, father of Jill (Susanne James) Gregory, Karin (Patrick Gallagher) Gregory, and Megan (Sean) Williams; grandfather of Ollie and Augustus Williams.

After an early career in social work, Lee received an undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering and a graduate degree in Manufacturing Systems, both from the University of Pittsburgh. He worked for over 30 years at Westinghouse, and later Bechtel, specializing in valves for nuclear submarines. A highlight of his career was riding aboard a nuclear submarine up the west coast of the United States, from San Diego to Seattle.

Lee was an enthusiastic railfan, taking photographs of trains every chance he got. Lee had a lifelong passion for trolleys; he volunteered at the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum since 1962, later serving on the Board of Trustees. He also authored the “Allegheny Observer” column in Railpace magazine for many decades. Lee was an avid reader of any printed material. He had an ever-curious mind and read The Economist cover-to-cover just for fun; he could beat an entire team of people in Trivia Pursuit.

Most of all, Lee loved his family. He was a devoted husband, father, and “Poppa.”
