Wayne Edward Zawislak

November 22, 1947 - October 25, 2016

Wayne Edward Zawislak, a longtime resident of Lee County, went to join his parents in heaven on October 25, 2016 at Hope Hospice in Cape Coral after a long courageous battle with lung cancer.

Wayne was in the presence of his wife, Anne-Marie and stepsons Matthew, James (Bryon), and Kevin (Jaime) Olivo. With him in prayer and loving thoughts were his sister, Veronica Podlasek of Chicago and his stepdaughter, Amie (Doug) Thesingh of Minneapolis; as well as a niece, nephew, and five grandchildren.

He was an exemplary human being who lived his life with pride, honor, and dignity. He proudly served in the U.S. Army and also shared the responsibility of raising four stepchildren with much love and unbelievable patience. He also was an animal lover who will be greeted at the rainbow bridge by Baxter, Bonnie, and Lacy. He will be missed by Clyde and Corky.

In lieu of flowers, please make memorial contributions in memory of Wayne to Bay Area Greyhound Adoption of Cape Coral/Fort Myers. Call (239) 985-9035 for additional information; you also may donate to the charity of your choice.

A Memorial Mass will be held 10:30AM, Monday, October 31, 2016 at St. Andrew Catholic Church, 2628 Del Prado Blvd, Cape Coral, FL 33904 with Father Len Gioeli officiating.
