Condolence & Memory Journal

It was shocking to hear the news of Mr. Steven Zaks. He was a great man with a wealth of knowledge & wisdom to share as a person and patient at our dental practice, where we spent more time in talking about books, family and approach to lead a balanced life. He was always proud of his family. It was truly a delight to have him in our practice over the last 2 decades. As his dentist, I learnt a lot from him. You will be missed deeply and cherished...

Fifteen years ago, I got a letter from the IRS stating I owed them a boatload of money. I was out of my mind. Panicked, hysterical, couldn't sleep. Steve gave me a slap in the face and told me the documents to bring to him. Two days later he called to tell me not only did I not owe the money, but that the IRS OWED ME a rebate. I went to Steve for many years after to have my taxes done and enjoy his wife's chocolate chip cookies.

My husband and I were lucky to get to know Geoff, however briefly, through our good friend Dave Finnerty and our shared love of superhero movies. A sweet, funny, kind man that I wish we'd had time to know better. Our sympathies to his family.

Such a terrible loss. He was a good man and I will always remeber the time he took me and my brother to the movies. He loved it as much as we did. Rest in Peace Uncle Geoff.
