Marvin (Marty) Zima, 82, died Monday, September 26, one week after his great-great nephew, Camden was born. Great family joy as well as deep sadness in one week. Such is the cycle of life that we all share.
Marty loved animals, plants, and even a few humans. Cooking in the military led to a career as an area chef, cooking for various restaurants, fraternities and sororities.
He will be greatly missed by his sister Delores (Dee) Morris, and other family members, Lareeda Hickey and her husband Ace, Brad Baldon, Erin Blodgett (Jake and Camden) and Bryan Hickey as well as everyone who remembers sharing good times with Marty.
No services are planned and donations in his memory can be made to Just Food to encourage their cooking program or the Lawrence Humane Society and may be sent in care of Warren-McElwain Mortuary.
