Gary L. Zuvers, 73, a lifelong resident of rural Morenci, died early Tuesday morning, June 26, 2018, at his home, in the presence of his loving family and under the gentle care of Hospice of Lenawee. Born June 28, 1944, in Morenci, he was the son of the late Velma Zuvers, and adopted son of the late Ruben Zuvers.
Gary was employed with the former Morenci Rubber Plant for over 30 years until its close. He then worked as a deliveryman for Harry’s Furniture in Saline and later Martin’s Home Center in Tecumseh, until his retirement in 2009. He loved watching old Westerns and for many years he and Marsha enjoyed camping trips around the area.
Gary married his lifelong love, Marsha J. Ringel of Toledo, on February 27, 1965, in Toledo. She survives. Also surviving are his daughter, Nancy Barden of Adrian; a son, Douglas Zuvers of Morenci; four grandchildren, Heather (Justin) Ralph, AJ (Felicia) Zuvers, Chelcie Barden and Travis Zuvers; and four great-grandchildren, Elijah, Logan, Aubrey and Layla. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a son, James Zuvers.
In accordance with Gary’s final wishes, cremation will take place. A memorial gathering for family and friends will be held on Saturday, June 30, 2018, from 2-4 p.m. at the Eagle Funeral Home in Morenci.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions in honor of Gary be given to benefit Hospice of Lenwee.
