Obituary for Russell Lee Bhame

Russell Lee Bhame, age 96, of Zelienople, went to be with his heavenly Father on Wednesday, February 5, 2020, surrounded by his loving family.

Born October 29, 1923 in Zelienople, he was the son of the late Howard and Esther Bhame.

Lee proudly served our country in the U.S. Army during World War II and the Korean War. He taught mathematics for 27 years at Quaker Valley Junior High School in Sewickley. Lee was a faithful, lifelong member of the Grace Church of Harmony, serving on the consistory, as an elder/deacon, and as Sunday School Treasurer. In his younger years, he could be found playing tennis on the court in the summer and ping-pong in the church basement during the winter. In recent years, he played pool in the recreation hall at church. Lee was a voracious reader. In particular, he loved Old English poems, of which he had committed hundreds to memory. Another hobby of Lee’s was playing the piano. He had memorized many classical pieces and also loved to play duets with his wife Dorothy. Above all, he will be remembered as a humble and generous family man who led by example with his faith, his love of God and his kindness towards others. Lee lived his life simply, loved generously, cared deeply and spoke kindly to all. He will be dearly missed and fondly remembered.

Lee leaves behind to cherish his memory his children, Donna (Gary) Davison and David (Karen) Bhame; his grandchildren, Erin (Evan) Conner, Roy Bhame and Marlena Bhame.; his great-grandchild, Rowan Conner; his brother, Thomas Bhame; and his sister, Louise Lord.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Dorothy J. Bhame, who passed away on February 11, 2015; his sister, Lois Potts; and his brothers, Ray and Carl Bhame.

Friends will be received from 1-5 P.M. on Sunday, February 9, 2020 at the Boylan Funeral Home, Inc., 324 E. Grandview Ave., Zelienople, PA 16063.

A funeral ceremony will be held at 11 A.M. on Monday, February 10, 2020 at the funeral home.

Lee will be laid to rest with full military honors at the Grace Church of Harmony Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in his honor to the Grace Church of Harmony, 538 Main St., Harmony, PA 16037.
