To the entire Azar family,
As many of you may know, we spent many memorable hours with our friend Kenny. Our time together in Naples will always be in our hearts. We laughed together, cried together, went to Walmart at late hours, found good and bad restaurants together, walked the beach together, swam together, sat on the beach together quietly and had some of the most wonderful home made meals together. We will never view a Naples sunset the same way and will always remember our companion watching with us. To all of you, we know you all loved him. We loved him too. We considered him not only a wonderful and dear friend but also part of our family.

So sorry to learn of his passing.
We are starting a Lebanese club in Naples, Fl and he was one of the ones that I wanted to attend our first meeting.
My sincere sympathy to everyone in his beautiful family,

I know we have lost a true gentlemen in all ways. He had so much love for life and people. He was a man of his word. He told you what he thought but always with grace. We spend a lot of time together at Papa Joes, Dontinos, Italian Festival just so many memories with us. My two sons Chase and Connor loved him and respected him so much. We were so blessed to have known him and loved him. Ken was a very special man and he will be truly missed by so many friends. Thank you Ken Azar for sharing your life and teaching us all the things you did. Rest in Peace Our Friend.
We will keep the Azar family in our prayers.
Love Cyndi, Chase and Connor Morris

I remember "Kenny" when my mother, Ramona, was a realtor with Gillespie Pilcher. He was a kind, warm hearted, fun-loving man with a great smile. Now he will continue to be joyful in his days in heaven.

To the Azar Family,

I remember Mr. Azar when I worked at the McDonald's on East Exchange Street (where the new stadium now sits). He was a kind, gentle man who always had a smile on his face. Please accept my deepest sympathy.

To the family and friends of Ken Azar,

I am so very sorry for your loss. It is so difficult to say good-bye to someone who was truly loved and respected by many.

Back in 1968, when I was a student at the University of Akron, I moved into my first apartment- on Nash Street. Ken Azar was my landlord!

Not only did he cheerfully respond to the usual calls for repairs and maintenance, but Ken also "stopped by" whenever I would file complaints about loud partying in adjacent units.

There was also an occasion in which Ken stepped in to ensure my safety and well-being when my less-than law-abiding roommate needed to be evicted.

Ken intervened and took care of everything. He truly helped me through a very uncomfortable and traumatizing situation and put me at ease.

Please know that many are thinking of you in your time of sorrow and loss.

May cherished memories of the happy times you spent together always comfort and inspire you.

To my Cousins, Denise, Lisa, Michelle, Erika,David, Christian, and my Aunt Margie..My best childhood memories were at your home in Northampton. I loved going over to your home and spending the night, having summer picnics,playing tether ball, and playing in the fields. Uncle Kenny and Aunt Margie always made us feel special. No one had such a great sense of humor like your dad.. He loved his family, and everyone was his friend.. . Uncle Kenny you were so blessed to have the love that surrounded you. A mother that loved you so much and raised 3 beautiful children and I must say all successful. He brought her love of cooking to your own house and shared all that good Lebanese cooking!! My mom, dad, Aunt Freda, and Uncle Sid will miss you and all the wonderful times they had gambling and breaking bread at Papa Joe's. What a wonderful journey you had Uncle Kenny and the wonderful love and memories you leave with all of us. I will miss you Uncle Kenny!

Love you with all my heart,

To Margie and the Azar Children....Kenny was a brother to me and my wife, and uncle to all our children. He brought all of us much happiness and love....he was special and held a place in all our hearts. It started over 35 years ago when we played handball at the Y and the "special friendship" found its way into both of our homes during our annual Christmas Eve family get togethers. Our relationship became even stronger as Ken and I spent time every winter at our Florida condos......those were memories I will forever treasure. He became the brother I never had and I truly loved him as my family did. Uncle Kenny was "someone special" to my children and my wife. He brought us all many smiles, laughs, memories and now tears. My children will miss their Uncle Kenny and my wife and I will miss "our brother".....We love you Ken. Please know that Kenny and all of you will be in our thoughts and prayers.

My deepest sympathy to Ken's family. He was one of our YMCA's most regular members. Our handball guys have lost one of its most beloved players. He was always a true gentleman and friend. Our annual golf outing just will not seem the same without his cooking skills and direction.

Kenny, I still don't think $12.00 is too much to pay for a bowl of lobster bisque soup for lunch!
It was well worth it, and I will cherish our precious time together forever.

I love you Grandpapa, I love you so much. You mean the world to me, I know you loved me to, even though we weren't related by blood I was your Grandson and you were my Grandpapa.. I know you were there looking over me at my baseball game last night, and you were there helping me. You were the reason I won the game ball even though we lost the game. I am dedicating the game ball to you. I love you, Your Grandson Jonathan W. Zeiger

Grandpapa, you were my hero and my role model, you meant the world to me, I loved and still love you so much. I always will love you. You taught me how to be a man. I know were weren't related by blood, but i believe that was the reason we became so close. I will keep the promises I said when I called you on your birthday. You were my grandpapa and I was your grandson and that's how it will always be. I know that you were looking over me during my game last night and you will always be looking over me. Goodbye for now, we will see each other soon. I love you, sincerely your Grandson, Jonathan W. Zeiger
