A lifelong car owner (38 and 38b) and ARDC and NEMA competitor passed away on July 1st.
Thank you one and all in my dad's racing 'family', for your kind thoughts and prayers. He loved NEMA and everyone involved that worked so hard to make it fun. It is with much sadness I must tell you that we lost Big John Zahar Sunday, July 1st, to cancer. I know he will be looking down and smiling with the waving of every green and checkered flag. I hope to make it to a race soon, donning a cowboy hat of course, and cheer ya'll on for John. Drive fast, be safe, have fun!
Hours Thursday 4-8 PM at the William R. Mcdonald Funeral Home, 2591 Main St Stratford CT 06615.
Funeral service Friday at 11am at the funeral home.
In lieu of flowers, John actively supported St Jude's Children's Hospital.
