Vanatta, his wife Sara, and their daughters Elliot and Sawyer; his daughter Alison (Vanatta) Lamb, her husband Justin Lamb, and their children Penelope and Justin Jr.; and his step-daughters Megan, Amanda, and Abigail Rice.

Lee's memory will be celebrated in private ceremonies in Savannah and Claremont.
