William W. Fee
William W. Fee, 88, a Butler resident from 1981 to 1989, died June 25 in San Diego, Calif.
Mr. Fee was born May 3, 1925, to Dwight and Lucille Brockman Fee, and raised in Pittsburgh.
He served in the 11th Armored Division, U.S. Army, in World War II.
He received a bachelor of arts in history and German from Muskingum College in 1948, and a master of public affairs degree from Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs in 1950.
Mr. Fee moved to Washington, D.C., in 1951, joining the Bureau of the Budget, forerunner of the Office of Management and Budget. After retirement in 1981, Fee moved to Butler where he played an active role in community affairs. In 1989, he returned to the Washington, D.C., area, and in 2011 moved to San Diego.
Throughout his adult life, Mr. Fee pursued intensive independent study of history, religion, philosophy and literature. His great joy was in sharing his insights through teaching. This took place at various Washington, D.C., churches and ecumenical evening schools, American University, Butler County Community College and the Leisure World Center for Lifelong Learning. He wrote and published articles on John Milton and Samuel Johnson, and published a four-volume history of the Fee family.
His wife of 54 years, the former Glenys Rauschenberger of Butler, died in 2000.
He is survived by a son, George D. (Susan) Fee of San Diego; three sisters; one brother; and many nieces and nephews.
