Lee Charles Anthony, 64, of Erie, Pa., died Tuesday, March 10, 2020 at St. Vincent Hospital. He was born on January 26, 1956 in Erie to the late Richard Anthony and Ann Cote Anthony. He graduated from General McLane High School in 1974 and earned his associate's degree in radiation technology from Gannon College. Lee was an employee of Meadville Medical Center for two years and Saint Vincent Hospital for 40 years, working in the heart catherization lab the entire time.
Survivors include his beloved wife, Mary Beth Senger Anthony; daughter Sarah Lynn Anthony and husband Curtis Weimer of Erie; son Steven Lee Anthony of Erie; brother Robert R. Anthony of Godley, Texas; three sisters, Kathy Johnston and husband Robert of Erie, Karen Lanzilotta of North Aurora, Ohio and Cheryl Pyle of McKean; two grandchildren, Anna Merilee Weimer and Elsie Patricia Weimer, both of Erie; in-laws Alfred and Marianne Senger of Girard; sisters-in law Melinda Senger Pazun and her husband Jim of Charlotte, NC and Nancy Senger Irwin and her husband Jason of Erie; and nieces and nephews Ashleigh, Jamie, Kyle, Rebekah, Tim, Hunter, Paige, Peyton and Piper.
He is also survived by many great people at Saint Vincent Hospital. Lee's coworkers were also like his family. He passed away at 3:30 p.m., the exact time he would punch out for work each day. Lee was a member of St. Nicholas Orthodox Church, loved NHL hockey, music, Canada, a well-manicured lawn, trains, snow blowing and a good porch swing - but most of all, he loved his family.
