  2. I wish to extend my sincere sympathy to the entire Zorc family. Steve built our home on 14 Drake in 1961. We still live in our home. The apple tree in our back yard was given to us by Steve. I will remember him as one of the most important person I have ever known. He truly was a gifted man. God bless all of you.
