Robert J. Lee, longtime resident of Guilford and most recently of Westbrook, passed away Sept. 8 at Connecticut Hospice, Branford.

He was a tool maker by trade and in his mid-30s began his own business Burns and Lee Tool Co. in Guilford, which he later moved to Clinton. He was a long-time member of the Guilford and Clinton Rotary Clubs, where met countless friends. Robert had a great zest for life and enjoyed it to the fullest. He was very social and enjoyed the company of family and friends. During retirement he lived happily for twenty years in Venice, Florida, with his third wife Theresa Vitale. They traveled extensively and loved to go to the casinos. He had a great life.
