From 1960 until 1962, he was program director for radio station WCAO-AM. He had been an advertising copy writer for a radio station in Scranton, Pa., before moving to Baltimore in 1954.

A native of Scranton, he studied business administration at the University of Scranton and served in the Army at the end of World War II.

Services were scheduled at 11 a.m. today at the Eline Funeral Home, 11824 Reisterstown Road in Reisterstown.

He is survived by his wife, the former Helen Taylor; three sisters, Lillian Quigg and Louise Novajosky, both of Virginia Beach, Va., and Siona Ratzel of Denver, Pa.; a brother, Kenneth Housen of Montrose, Pa.; and several nieces and nephews.

The Rev. Alan H. Gee

Housing administrator

The Rev. Alan H. Gee, who was rector of St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church before becoming an administrator in the Baltimore Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD), died June 2 of heart failure at a hospital in Naples, Fla.

Mr. Gee was 63 and moved from Baltimore to Naples in January. He had retired from HCD just over a year ago after working on inner-city housing programs since 1972. He had also filled in for other Episcopal priests in the Baltimore area.

He retired in 1972 as rector of St. Bartholomew's Church in West Baltimore. In the mid-1960s, he came to Baltimore as an assistant at Old St. Paul's Episcopal Church after assignments in upstate New York.

Born in Fall River, Mass., he was a graduate of Gettysburg College and the Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Mass. He served in the Army during the Korean War.

A memorial service was conducted yesterday at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Naples.

He is survived by his wife, the former Joan Powers; two sons, Lincoln and Brian Gee, both of Baltimore; a daughter, Maria-Therese Gee, also of Baltimore; and a sister, Barbara Backley of Cape Cod, Mass., and Naples.
