So sorry for your loss. I live around the corner from him and would see him walking the dog. We would chat. I had worked at Leys when I was a teenager with your mom.
My deepest sympathy.

Please accept my sincere condolences for Zak's passing. I spent many a Friday night with Zak and Teddy, I couldn't get enough of his stories from his naval and merchant marine career! Zak was a true gentleman, a fine husband for Bev and a great friend to me, always there to help with anything! May you have fair winds and following Seas Zak!
