Zapert, John

On Saturday June 12th, 2021, John (Rick) Zapert, age 73, passed away after a brief illness surrounded by his beloved wife and two daughters by his side.

Rick was born November 5, 1947 in Florida. He was a Veteran of the Marine Corps and a retired cell tower project manager. He loved cooking for his family, spending time at his beach house in Lewes, reading, and playing computer games for fun. Nothing brought him as much joy as spending time with his wife, kids and grandkids! They frequently got on his nerves, but he wouldn’t have it any other way! He was always the voice of reason and the calming center for the family. We are thinking of you Pop Pop, but that is nothing new. We thought about you yesterday, and the day before that too. We will think about you tomorrow, and as the years come and go. We will think about you forever, because we all loved you so!

He will be dearly missed by his wife of almost 50 years, Nancy; 2 children, Michelle (Deryck) Raske, Nicole (Chris) Zapert; and 4 grandchildren, Tyler, Dylan, Shane, and Dean.

A private Memorial Service and interment is planned at the Delaware Veterans Memorial Cemetery.
