John James Zarkowski

April 22, 1949 – September 22, 2021

John was a Veteran of the Marine Corps and served his country in the Vietnam War.  He was a son, a brother, the best uncle you could hope to have, and a friend to many.

He was preceded in death by his loving wife, Gail; parents, Edward and Shirley; brothers, Paul and Edward; sister, Susan; brother-in-law, Bill Hicks; sister-in-law, Carla.  He is survived by sister-in-law, Mary; brothers, Ron (Annette) and Richard (Carla); sisters, Cheryl Hicks (Bill) and Judy Killion (Jerry); many nieces, nephews, grandnieces, and grandnephews.

Memorials are suggested to, Plattsmouth Fire & Rescue, Plattsmouth Police Department, and Cass County Sheriff.  All these agencies were instrumental in bringing John home.
