Tommy Lee, 64, claimed his prize March 7 at the Georgia Lottery District Office in Duluth.

Lanier Food Mart, 5971 Cleveland Highway in Clermont, sold the winning ticket.

I started seeing all of those zeros, Lee recalled.

Recently retired, Lee worked as a truck driver for more than 30 years. He and his wife have one adult son.

It still hasnt soaked in yet, he said. Ive got a lot on my mind, so I dont have plans right off yet.
