David Zakutny, age 62, passed away unexpectedly at the golf course, a place he loved on November 23, 2021.
Dave was born and raised in Lorain, Ohio. He was a beloved husband, a dad to his two cats Ella and Rex, a brother, uncle and friend to many. He cherished his family and friends. Dave left an indelible mark on everyone he met with his sarcasm, dry sense of humor, compassion, generosity and kind heart. All that knew him loved him.
After graduating college, he worked in the Lender Servicing industry his entire career, retiring in 2019. Always a stylish dresser, Dave was an avid golfer, reader, loved history especially military history and enjoyed an occasional cigar – he lived life to the fullest. He met his wife who adored him in college and they were married for 38 years. They lived in several different states during their time together most recently moving to Arizona so he could enjoy retirement and play golf year round. Dave always made lifelong friends and created treasured memories everywhere he lived. He will be forever missed and always in our hearts.
He is survived by his wife Judy Zakutny, brother Michael Zakutny (Mary), sisters Cathy Rathwell and Shelley Calhoun (David), 4 nieces, 5 nephews and several great nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his father Merle Zakutny, mother Jeannine Zakutny, a brother-in-law Chip Rathwell and beloved pets, Scooter, Bailey and Baxter.
A celebration of Dave’s life will be held at Gilbert Memorial Park 2100 E. Queen Creek Rd. on December 9, 2021, beginning at 1pm followed by a reception at Seville Golf & Country Club 6683 S Clubhouse Dr.
