Robert W. “Bob” Zack, Jr.
July 14, 1980 ‒ March 18, 2018
BELLVILLE: Robert W. “Bob” Zack, Jr. passed away Sunday, March 18, 2018 in OhioHealth Mansfield Hospital following a six month battle with cancer.
His zest for life included many passions such as cooking, hunting, and fishing, yet his love of family was his greatest passion of all.
He was born July 14, 1980 in San Jose, California the son of Loretta (Adams) Daily and the late Robert Walter Zack, Sr. and graduated from Lexington High School having spent two years at Pioneer with his focus on Culinary Arts.
Bob’s passion for cooking started at Sweeny’s. Later he worked at local restaurants until he helped the start of his family’s restaurant K.C.’s Steak and Ribs in Bellville where he was head chef for the last ten years.
He enjoyed watching the Browns, delighted in animals and small children and was always playful, clowning around having fun, never-failing to entertain.
Bob was passionate about the outdoors, spending every minute he could outside hunting, trapping, camping and fishing. His love of fishing lead to many late nights after work along the lakes just waiting to catch the big one, and days with his children where he taught them to cast their first line.
But none of these passions outweighed Bob’s passion for his family. He was a loving father, faithful partner, devoted son and awesome big brother. His intense love for all of them inspired him to fight the hardest battle of his life, the fight against cancer. He leaves a legacy of hard work, appreciation for nature, fun-loving laughter and commitment to family.
He is survived by his mother and step-father Loretta and Roger Daily of Bellville, Bob also leaves the love of his life and fiancée Melissa Oxendale of Bellville, and their children Jacob and Abbygail Zack, step son Jaxson Oxendale, two brothers and sisters-in-law Adam and Daisy Zack of Lexington, and Christopher and Debbie Zack of Bellville, four nieces and nephews Hannah and Tyler Zack and Cheyanne and Dakota Zack, and his maternal grandmother Mary Adams Long of Parkersburg, West Virginia.
He was preceded in death by his father.
