ZINN: Leon Zinn, of Sun Lakes, Arizona died peacefully, on December 7, 2012, after a long and happy life of 85 years. Leon was a loving and devoted family man, who is survived by his childhood sweetheart and beloved wife Sena, his son Robert Zinn (Darlene Berkovitz) of Fox Chapel, PA, his daughter Elizabeth Bell-Zinn (Karen Bell-Zinn) of Phoenix, AZ, and his grandchildren Andrew Zinn, Eleanor Zinn, Julie Bell-Zinn and Samuel Bell-Zinn. Lee was born in New York City, and, after graduating from Bronx Science High School, went on to obtain a bachelor’s degree from The City College of New York and a master’s degree from New York University, both in electrical engineering. He enjoyed a distinguished career as an engineer in the private and public sectors. Lee was an inventor and co-founded a publicly held technology company in the 1960s. He was also an accomplished classical pianist, from a well-known musical family, and performed his debut solo piano recital, at age 22, in New York City’s Town Hall. Lee continued as an active chamber musician and concert performer throughout his life. He was well-read in the arts and sciences, but politics was his passion; Lee enjoyed nothing more than intense analysis and debate with friends about the most important topics of the day. Lee’s serious side was complemented by a keen and warm sense of humor. A memorial service will be held on December 27, 2012, at Temple Solel, 6805 East McDonald Drive, Paradise Valley, AZ . In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Phoenix Symphony in memory of Leon Zinn (One North First Street, Suite 200, Phoenix, AZ 85004).
