Mis mas sentido pesame para la familia Zeke fue un gran compañero de travajo y un gran maestro en los carros me dava muchos consejos de que agregarle a la troca pero me dejo uno de sus mejores proyectos que hasta el momento no me arrepiento de haber comprado. Dios lo tenga en su santa gloria lo vamos a extrañar mucho en fox.

I worked with Zeke for about 2 years at Fox Packaging. He was a very respectful co-worker who very much loved his wife and enjoyed going on vacation up north where it's cold. I would love to attend the funeral service and give the family a strong tight hug but I know God hugs better. May God hold the Zarate Family in his arms in these difficult times. Zeke will be missed by many!
