Arthur Frederick Zang Jr. Obituary
Zang, Jr., Arthur Frederick
Arthur Frederick Zang, Jr. passed away on Sunday August 13, 2017 at home surrounded by his family. He was born on September 23, 1939 in Columbus, Ohio to Arthur F. Zang, Sr. and Geraldine Moore Zang. Art graduated from North High in 1957. He attended Ohio State University and found joining the TKE'S more fun than studying. In 1962 he became a salesman for Mutual of Omaha beginning a life long career. In 1970 he met his future wife, Malauna or Mike as she is better known. Art and Mike married in 1973 combining their families. In 1973 he joined Paul Revere Life and Disability Insurance Company as the general manager for their career system in Columbus. His agency thrived, becoming one of the company's best and winning many awards. He loved working with the agents and helping them grow in their careers. Art was involved with Recreation Unlimited in its early years. He served on the board, hired staff and served hands on to keep the camp running for two weeks every August. Even after retiring from the board, he remained passionate about the camp and its mission. Golf was always a part of his life. He made many life long friends as a member at Worthington Hills County Club. Pancreatic cancer became an unwanted part of his life in 2012. He met it head on as he did everything in his life but this battle couldn't be won. Art is survived by his wife Mike, daughter Jennifer of Columbus, son Scott Furbee of Austin, TX, sister Arlene of Canada and his four legged buddy Mugs. He was preceded in death by his parents, his son Jeffrey M. Zang and brother-in-law Peter Harman. A special thanks to Ohio Health Hospice, especially their nurse Sue. In lieu of flowers, those who wish may contribute to Recreation Unlimited or Ohio Health Hospice in Art's memory. Calling hours will be at Rutherford Funeral Home at Powell, 450 W. Olentangy Street, Powell, Ohio, Thursday, August 17 from 4-8 PM. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church, 10700 Liberty Road South, Friday, August 18 at 10:30 AM with interment at Mt. Calvary Cemetery to follow.
