Aug 18, 1948 - Feb 10, 2019


John george zekan, jr. 70, of charleston, wv passed away on february 10, 2019. He was born august 18, 1948 in denver, colorado to mrs. Verna zekan and the late dr. John g. Zekan.

He was graduate of charleston catholic high school and received a degree in biology from

wheeling jesuit college. He combined his interest in science and mechanics with his entrepreneurial spirit to establish his own company, “surtec”, to sell, install, and service surgical lights and tables. He subsequently utilized his vast knowledge of biochemistry and nutrition to educate and counsel patients at the office of his brother, dr. Steve zekan.

John was a true renaissance man. He had a quick wit and an insatiable curiosity, loving to learn and talk about any and all subjects. He was a kind and gentle person who never met a stranger, and would always offer a helping hand. He had a deep appreciation of nature and the outdoors, and especially enjoyed hunting with his friends in the stewarts run hunting club. However, the biggest joy in his life was spending time with his nieces and nephews, whom he cherished.

He is survived by his mother, verna zekan; by six siblings, dr. Stephen zekan (cathy), dr. Patricia zekan crumpler (terry), william zekan (carol), dr. Elizabeth zekan petryna (mark), dr, jeanne zekan, dr. Thomas zekan; and by ten nieces and nephews, elizabeth c.
