Hall See Lee, age 88, a 70-year resident of McKeesport, PA, died on Monday, May 13, 2024. Born on November 6, 1935 in Canton China, he is the son of the late Henry King and Yee Chin Fay Thor. Hall immigrated to McKeesport, PA as a young boy. He graduated from McKeesport High School and worked at his family’s Chinese restaurant, Yee Wah, while attending the University of Pittsburgh for Civil Engineering. He eventually took over ownership and ran Yee Wah until its closing in 1968. He then applied his strong work ethic and knowledge at Westinghouse Airbrake and Adtranz. Hall often showed his love for family and friends with his love of cooking, greeting all with firm pats on the back enveloped within his bear-like hugs. His extraordinary love and dedication to family was his center for which he will be dearly missed.
