He is joined in heaven by his loving parents, the late Angelo and Jean Zanotti of Feeding Hills.

Lee graduated from Agawam High and later UMass Amherst with a degree in business. He led a successful career in the wine and car sales industries. His greatest accomplishments in life were his three daughters and grandson. He cherished each of their wedding days with such pride. Lee was his grandson Ben’s greatest fan. Lee loved Frank Sinatra, Boston sports, and Italian food and drink. His ability to say a kind word or crack a joke made everyone in the room feel welcome. His daughters will fondly remember the many Red Sox games, sing-alongs in the Cadillac, their family trip to Italy, his endless Dad jokes, Hampton Beach days, and how he signed every card with “All My Love”. Lee had a heart of gold and he truly did it “his way”.
