Sunflower Memorial for John Zarras

September 1, 1939 - April 1, 2012

Thank you for visiting this memorial page for our father.  Besides the deep love he showed for our mother, his wife of nearly 50 years, all of us, and his 11 grandchildren, our Dad touched countless other lives.  The love and support we have received from all of you who knew him has moved us deeply.

As an engineer, business executive, and deacon in the Orthodox Church, our father excelled at identifying problems and then solving them with great vision and optimism.  His two year, hard-fought struggle with carcinoid/neuroendocrine cancer was not a challenge he could conquer, and we will miss him dearly.  We greatly appreciate your honoring his memory by joining us to work towards a cure.  It brings us all hope to know that together we can help countless other families who face carcinoid.


"Rejoice in your hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.  ~Romans 12.12

Together with our mother Evangeline, and all of our children, we thank you most sincerely.
