Obituary for Zane E. Ward

Zane Ward, age 72, of Alexandria, Indiana died on Wednesday, October 24, 2018 at Community Hospital in Anderson. He was born in Heber Springs, Arkansas in 1946, and attended Alexandria Monroe High School until he enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corp in 1966. He received his G.E.D. in the Marine Corp.
As a Marine, Zane served in the Vietnam War from April 1966 through December 24, 1968. He was also a former police officer in Arkansas who graduated from the Arkansas Law Enforcement Training Academy in 1975. Zane was the owner of Azimow & Culbertson scrap company in Alexandria for 30 years. Zane, a disabled veteran, retired several years ago after suffering from extensive health problems.
Zane was the co-founder of the Summitville Hope Center, a 501(c)(3) charity in Madison county, Indiana that provides essential food and clothing items to over 150 families in the north Alexandria, Summitville, and Fairmount communities. Zane spent his last moments on earth in service to others.
Zane was well known for his loud voice, chatty personality, and willingness to raise attention to controversial subjects. What a lot of people didn’t know about Zane is that he also had a caring heart and frequently helped others in need. His larger than life personality will be missed dearly by his family and friends.
Zane was preceded in death by his parents James Walter Ward, Bethel Millwood Ward, his brothers Jerry Ward and Tony Ward, and his sister Faye Eubanks.
Zane is survived by his wife Mary Ward, son Roger (Jennifer) Ward, daughter Denise (Jake) Gosnell, son Rick (Laura) Ward, son David (Ashley) Ward, son Steven (Brittani) Ward, 7 grandchildren: Delaney Ward, Olivia Ward, Victoria Gosnell, James Ward, Brady Ward, Emily Ward, and Hattie Ward, 5 sisters: Francis Holland, Martha Reiter, Betty (Jack) Lovens, Wanda (Duane) Shannon, and Gloria (Don) Coon, sister-in-law Judy Ward, several nieces, nephews, and extended family.
Services honoring Zane’s life, legacy and faith will take place at 2 pm on Sunday, October 28, 2018 in the Wesleyan Bible Holiness Church, 17345 North 150 East, Summitville, IN 46070 with Pastor Danny Decker officiating. Interment with military honors will follow in Park View Cemetery in Alexandria. Friends may call at the Owens Funeral Home, 412 North Harrison Street, Alexandria on Saturday from 4 pm to 8 pm or after 1 pm on Sunday at the church prior to the services.

The family requests that memorial contributions in Zane’s honor be made to the Summitville Hope Center charity in lieu of flowers. Contributions can be provided through the funeral home, or by mailing them to: Summitville Hope Center, Inc., P.O. Box 68, Summitville, IN 46070. Zane’s wife Mary will use such contributions to continue providing essential food and clothing items to families in the north Alexandria, Summitville, and Fairmount communities
