Francis Zylwitis Passes Away

    Francis J. "Zeke" Zylwitis died peacefully at his longtime home in Davidsonville, MD on December 18th. He was 71. 
    Loving husband, father and adored grandfather. Born and raised in Bethlehem, PA, by Frank and Jennie (Rich) Zylwitis. He graduated from Notre Dame High School. After a tour in Vietnam in the Army Military Police, this accidental soldier but deliberate scholar finished his studies on GI Bill while performing civilian police work in DC and Annapolis during the turbulent late sixties and early seventies. He received degrees from University of Maryland, College Park and American University and spent his career in public safety and organizational security management. He was a great strategist at work, at home and in sports.
    He is survived by his wife of 46 years, Peg Zylwitis of Davidsonville, MD; his daughters Elizabeth Hall (Edward Hall) of Chesapeake Beach, MD and Meg Zed (Philip Zed) of Pittsburgh, PA; and grandchildren Jude, Owen, Neve (Zed) and Catherine (Hall). His cooking, humor and conversations will greatly be missed.
