Edward Zach

September 5, 1924 — December 8, 2019

Edward Michael Zach, 95, was called home to be with his Lord Sunday, December 8, 2019.

Ed was born on September 5, 1924, in Humphrey, NE, and spent his childhood in Humphrey. He served in the U.S. Army as a paratrooper in World War II. After returning home, he married Beatrice Elaine Steinhoff on June 7, 1947.

Throughout his life, he was an excellent salesman at various different companies. In 1978 he opened up a successful kitchen cabinet business, E-Z Kitchens in Hastings, NE which is still a family-run business today.

Over their 64 years of marriage, Ed and Elaine always had an open home and open hearts, making everyone feel like family. They passed on a rich legacy of hospitality to their 11 children and 40 grandchildren. Ed was a faithful, committed, and devoted husband. He was a man of integrity, honor, and hard work ethic. He had an excellent sense of humor, a twinkle of mischievousness, a hearty singing voice, an endearing streak of stubbornness, and a love for dancing with his daughters and granddaughters. Throughout his life, he had a deep devotion to God and in his later years, he had a strong, heart-felt desire to share his faith in Jesus Christ with others.

Ed and Elaine had 11 children together. Ed joins his wife Elaine and his son Mike, in heaven. He is survived by his daughter, Deanna; his daughter-in-law, Cheryl; his daughter Renee and her husband Tom; his son, Mark and his wife Peggy; his daughter Mary and her husband Bill; his daughter Nola and her husband Dennis; his daughter Nancy and her husband Armand; his son David and his wife Marsha, his son Rodney and his wife Barb; his son Charles and Sherri; and his daughter Sonya and her husband Barney. He also had 40 grandchildren and 38 great-grandchildren - soon to be 42. He was also survived by one brother, Ferdinand.

Celebration of Life is 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, December 17, at All Saints Chapel – Good Samaritan Village in Hastings with Pastor Dale Phillips officiating. Burial with military rites by Hastings Military Honor Guard will be at Parkview Cemetery in Hastings. Visitation will be 6-8 p.m. Monday with family present at the funeral home, and one hour prior to service at All Saints Chapel. In lieu of flowers, Ed requested memorials be given to The Exodus Road (theexodusroad.com).
