ZAZULA – Kim

April 03, 1958 – April 20, 2010

It is with heavy hearts and deepest regret that the family of Kim Zazula announce his sudden passing on Tuesday, April 20th, 2010 in Calgary. Kim is survived by his loving parents, Stan & Aurora Zazula and dear brothers Kerry & Yuri Zazula as well as a large extended family and many, many dear friends. Kim was a man of great kindness and compassion who will remain in our hearts forever. He was a friend and mentor to many. In his youth he would handle situations with strong determination but with age and as his health deteriorated he chose to live in seclusion. It is fondly remembered that as a toddler at an outdoor country picnic, with wildflowers clutched in a tiny fist extended to his mother he said, “For why you are crying.” With Kim, others came first. Rest in Peace Kim, We Love You. Details of a gathering to celebrate Kim’s life will be announced at a later date. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Kim Zazula, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Telephone: (403) 243-8200.

    I remember the first time we met right up to the last time we spoke to each other. What lies between those moments are 37 years of great friendship. We were pioneers in the sport of ball hockey and playing air guitar/drums. No one could ever weave a story like you my friend. To all the good times we had, for ever in my mind… your life-long friend.

    It is with great sadness that we learn of the passing of Kim. It is definately the “young and determined” ZAZ that we remember well. Memories of times shared with him at Systems and then at The Banke flood back in like it was just yesterday. We look forward to seeing you all at the gathering to celebrate his life. He was a great soul!
    With Heartfelt Sympathy for the entire family.

  11. On behalf of myself and my best bud Ron Belding, who passed last year,(who shared many a Stampede BBQ with you and he), I can only offer our mutual feelings of sympathy for Yaz’s passing. Both Ron and I understood Yaz and that is why we were friends.
    I do not have the words to express anything that could ease your emotional pain, but I hope you know that we loved him as much as anyone could ever love a friend because of who he was.

    Dear Zazula family,
    I am so very sad to hear of Kim’s passing. He was such a big part of my life growing up. There are so many great memories of him – I especially remember that to me, he was a GIANT. Of course, I was only 3 feet tall. He had great big hands and a great big laugh, but most of all he had a GREAT BIG heart.
    ***Until we meet again, Uncle Kim***
    Much love,
    Ronda
