A family man and a man of God.  He was a loving husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather, great grandfather, uncle, and neighbor.  He will be remembered for his immense kindness, generosity and humility.  A man of simple desires, he solved the not so simple problem of getting satisfaction out of the life he was given.  Lee Paul Moran, 83, of Ravenswood, WV, died Monday, September 3, 2018. He died peacefully in his home surrounded by his loved ones.

He left us all too soon: Martha, his loving wife of 58 years; son Michael Paul and fiancée Lynn Eubank; daughters Rita and husband Lance McCoy, Barbara and husband Jon Schade and Peggy and husband Pat Sutton; sister Rose Angela Lubert; sister-in law Sue Moran; 12 grandchildren, 1 great grandchild, and many nieces and nephews.

Paul was a passionate, life-long member of the Catholic Church.  He was the son of an Orlando, WV businessman and entrepreneur, Michael V. Moran.  He graduated from Wheeling Central Catholic High School in 1954 and served honorably in the United States Army.  He retired from Kaiser Aluminum after more than thirty years of service.  During many years of satisfying retirement, he served the Church and his community.  Paul was always ready, always willing to lend a helping hand.

He is preceded in death by his father Michael Moran (Orlando, WV), mother Marguerite (Sweeny) Moran (Orlando, WV) and two brothers John and Joe Moran (Baltimore, MD).
