Don Zinser- Father & Friend

I just wanted to post a little tribute to Evan's dad, Don. He left this earth on New Year's Day 2009. He was an amazing man. When I was dating Evan, he made me feel really welcome into the Zinser family. He loved me for who I was and loved me like a daughter. I am grateful for the love and concern that he always showed Evan and me. I am also grateful for the way that he raised Evan. Evan is a lot like him in many ways

Don truly lived for his family and friends. He would do anything for anyone. And he never expected anything back. He was just glad to be able to help. He taught Evan many things. He gave Evan his love for fishing and cars and he helped numerous times with improvements on our house.

I am so pleased that my kids were able to meet him, but sad that they didn't get to know him. He was so excited about being a grandpa. Iris will see a picture of him and say "Bompa". She loved him very much. Donevan shares his name and will hopefully share his personality.

There will be a memorial service Wednesday January 14 - 6:00 pm

Sparks Christian Fellowship
510 Greenbrae Dr.
Sparks, NV 89431

Reception immediately follows service.

He was loved and respected by many and will truly be missed.
