Zoilo Pozo

July 4, 1929June 28, 2018

ZOILO POZO, age 88 of Concord, Ohio. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife Margaret. Loving father of Linda (Ted) Bouck, Rick (Andrea), Chuck (Lisa), and devoted grandfather to Mason. Often called a charmer, Zoilo was born in Maracaibo, Venezuela to Carmen and Dimas Pozo. As a young man he worked for Shell Oil, who sent him to the U.S. to further his education. After a short stay in New York City, he moved to Cleveland, Ohio to better his English and to start studying Engineering. There he met Margaret, his future wife, and he never went back. Seaway Forwarding was his first job, and after many years there he moved on the Ceilcote in Berea, Ohio. In the 70’s he started Salazar Industries and Salazar Overseas where he remained President until his retirement. During this time he also gave much of himself supporting the Pan American Soccer Club, where he created a loving extended family. He will be remembered as a loving, generous man who thought not of himself, but for all of those around him, always finding a way to bring joy to others. His love of music was infectious, and even when he found it hard to walk, he found a way to dance whenever and wherever he was. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
