Zeke was born January 26, 1958 in Streator, a son of Henry and Lottie (Splawski) Parzgnat.  He married Kathy Feken on January 22, 1981 in Streator.

 

He is survived by his wife, Kathy of Streator; two sons, Kenny (Bijayta) Parzgnat of Wilmette and Tony (Cymon Kimmel) Parzgnat of Chicago; two grandchildren, Nolan & Bela Parzgnat; two sisters, Anne (Keith) Liptak of Streator and Vicky (Dave) Elliott of Algonquin; and one brother, Mark (Jan) Parzgnat of Lombard.

 

Zeke would say he was a “Beef Surgeon” and worked as a butcher at Handy Foods before he retired.  He was an avid sports fan, following Chicago and U of I sports and a die-hard Cubs fan.

 

Zeke was very proud of his sons and his grandchildren.  He loved to share a beer with friends at Omars.
