Hon. Thomas J. Fee
The Honorable Thomas J. Fee, 59, of Manheim, died unexpectedly of natural causes Wednesday, Aug. 31, 2011 at the Heart of Lancaster Regional Medical Center in Lititz.
Born in New Castle, he was the son of Thomas J. Fee Sr., of New Castle, and the late Lucretia Fuleno Fee. He was the loving husband of Melinda S. "Mindy" Gates Fee, with whom he would have celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary on Dec. 31 of this year. His first wife was the late Marilyn Isaac Fee.
Fee was elected magisterial district justice in 2008 to a six-year term, serving the Manheim, Penn and Rapho township areas.

Other memberships included: Manheim Lions Club, Manheim Touchdown Club, Prospectors Investment Club and Skullduggers Association. Tom enjoyed fishing and traveling. His passion in life was his family and friends. He was the ultimate host at his home, welcoming friends and making everyone feel they were the most important part of his life, which they were.
He was a gregarious, fun-loving person with a huge, kind heart which helped him make many friends. His famous Christmas Eve fish fries were legend.
Surviving in addition to his wife are two daughters: Danielle M., wife of Nicholas L. DeLong, of Manheim; Abigail L. Fee, at home; a son: Ryan J. Fee, of West Chester; one granddaughter: Isabella Marilyn DeLong; four sisters: Lu Ann, wife of Thomas Kelly, of New Castle; Kathleen, wife of John Baird, of Slippery Rock; Patricia, wife of Chester Orelli, of New Castle; and Terri Lynn, wife of Emilio Posa, of Pittsburgh; a brother: and James Fee, companion of Cheryl Cavanaugh, of Hermitage.
