Obituary of John A. Zingle
Please share a memory of John to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
John "Jack" Zingle passed away on January 3, 2023 at the age of 90 near his home in Lake Placid NY. He had been struggling with the Flu and had been hospitalized, getting to know all the medical teams while there. He enjoyed getting to know people and 'schmoozing' as he had been a salesman all his working life. He retired to Lake Placid where he enjoyed the peace and quiet. Jack's hobbies included hunting, yardwork and caring for the dogs he had over the years. His special talent was building things of wood, mainly furniture, and he could often be found tinkering in his shop. When not there, he was either riding around on the mower or taking donuts to people in town that he had come to know, while sneaking in an ice cream cone from McD's. He is survived by his spouse of 67 years, Catherine, and four adult children: Zoe (Bruce McCulley) of Vermontville NY, Neale of Albuquerque, NM, Karen (Rusty Lowry) of Omaha NE and Suzanne (Michael Richardson) of Lakeville, MN as well as grandchildren Megan (Perry Millner) of Eagan MN, Sarah (Joshua Dahlen) of Fargo, ND and Micah McCulley and two great grandchildren: Perry and Matthias Millner of Eagan MN. Jack was a devoted father and good provider over the years. He will be missed. There will be a private family memorial, as were his wishes. Donations in his name may be made to Tri Lakes Humane Society, Saranac Lake NY. Please visit www.mbclarkfuneralhome.com to share a memory or leave condolences. Arrangements by M.B.
