Richard "Rick" Zanon
age 59. Passed into eternal life with his savior on August 8, 2014 at home, surrounded by his adoring family, after a valiant and heart wrenching battle with pancreatic cancer. Rick is survived by his loving wife; Migdalia (nee Rivera), proud children; Angela (Jeremiah) Nicholas, Benjamin (Whitney) and Trina, 3 cherished grandchildren, his beloved mother; Geneva, 7 siblings, along with other relatives and many friends. His father Henry preceded him in death. Funeral service 6:00 PM on Monday August 11, 2014 at Spring Creek Church, N35 W22000 Capitol Dr., Pewaukee, WI 53072. The family will greet relatives and friends on Monday at the church from 4:00 PM until the time of service and at a reception to be held afterwards. Private interment Sunnyside Cemetery in Lannon, WI. In 1996, Rick began his lifelong dedication to meeting the needs of seniors as they transitioned into Senior Living Communities. Rick has always felt great compassion and dedication towards serving the needs of older adults. As his business grew, so did his passion to serve others. He expanded his business to include Senior Day Trips with Universal Transportation. Consign W/US was opened in Sussex as a consignment shop dedicated to assisting seniors as they downsize their homes. Rick's business also included Universal Services Freight and Logistics Management, which served the needs of many of Wisconsin's larger corporations. Throughout his career, he formed many close personal, business and spiritual relationships with a wide circle of people. A gifted athlete, Rick took great care to stay active playing racquetball and softball as recently as last June when symptoms of his disease made necessary a prolonged and uncomfortable hospital stay. Rick's strong relationship with Jesus Christ, his loving family support, and his strong personal character made possible an inspiring good cheer and acceptance even in the presence of great physical discomfort. In lieu of flowers, the family has a memorial established
for "Trina's College Fund" at US Bank in Sussex, WI.
