In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting any donations be made to the Tidewell Hospice in Port Charlotte, Florida (www.tidewell.org).

"Zeb was a good uncle and in many ways was like a second father when I was young growing up with Roger and Richard. Every holiday, camping, Boy Scouts,..." Randy Hines (La Crosse, WI)
