Jim Zinkievich was raised on the family dairy farm on Fletcher Chapel Road and took over the running of the farm when other family members took other paths in life.  Jim and his wife Gerry raised three sons and one daughter; Kris, Kirk, Todd and Mindy on the family farm.  Due to a fire in March of 1991 which took the milking and hay barns to the ground, Jim moved on to become a tractor trailer driver for Jim Watson hauling agricultural products.  In time, Jim bought out the trucking business from Mr. Watson and continued to haul agricultural products for farmers in Orleans and the surrounding counties until the time of his passing

Jim was one of the most loving and caring men you could find.  Like his mother Lucy, he always found the best in even the worst of people.  The nine grandchildren that were lucky enough to know their grandpa will always remember him taking them for "goodies" at the store and taking them several evenings a week to look for deer.  Jim was the best....the best husband, best father, best grandfather and the best of friends.

His wife, his children and their spouses and his now 12 grandchildren hold him dearly in their hearts and will always remember Grandpa Jimbo for his smiles and hugs.

David Zinkievich was born in Warsaw NY on March 3, 1949.  The family moved from Warsaw to Medina and lived on Fletcher Chapel Rd helping his dad and brothers on the farm.  He graduated from Medina High School in 1968 and met Sue in 1972 and they married in July of 1974.  David and Sue had 2 sons Daniel and Bryan.  

David worked for Keeler Construction for over 25 yrs, as a dump truck driver.  He planned on retiring in 2009.   In the summer months he worked many long and hard hours.  The winter months he was home doing things around the house and cutting wood.  David liked to be busy, and always willing to help anyone that called on him.  If he couldn’t help he would be there supervising.

He loved riding his 4-wheeler especially with his Dan & Bryan. Besides his sons he loved all his nieces and nephews.  They would all run when they saw him coming because he would always want hugs and kisses from them.  He always looked forward to going out for breakfast and meeting his friends.  He loved being outdoors and was very particular with the way his yard looked.  He also enjoyed his lottery tickets and gambling at the casinos.

On September 2007 we received bad news that David had a mass on his shoulder.  We went to Strong Hospital in Rochester.   In November 2007 after 3 biopsies they found out he had stage 4 kidney cancer. He died March 22, 2008.

My sons and I were very upset that David never got to retire and enjoy life, his children and his grandson.  On February 2010 I was blessed with my first grandchild a little boy weighing over 10 pounds just like his grandfather. His name is “David Daniel”, after his grandfather.  Grandpa David would be very proud of his grandson.
Little David has a guardian angel, his grandfather.  David may not be with us, but he will never be forgotten. 


Thank you to the Knights Kaderli Foundation for all their help during his illness.

David Millis lost his honorable fight with Pancreatic Cancer at the early age of 54. He touched the lives of so many during his lifetime. Dave was the Superintendent for the Pollution Control Facility in the Village of Albion for 32 years and was an active member of the community. He volunteered his time to the Orleans County 4-H program and supported his family in sports and many other activities. He was truly a kind hearted, hard working, and fun loving person. Those who knew Dave will tell you that he was always there for anyone who needed help.

It is in Dave’s memory that we have again selected the proceeds of this tournament to be donated to the Knights/Kaderli Memorial Fund to help families as they fight their battle with Cancer. In seven years, over $89,000 has been raised with the support of sponsors, golfers, dinner guests, donations, volunteers and raffle prizes. The money assisted with prescriptions, medical insurance, nutritional supplements, hospital beds, and other needs. The proceeds of this tournament will give families an opportunity to spend time with their loved ones and focus on their fight against cancer. 

Don’t miss an opportunity to help families in need, during one of the most difficult times of their life. It is in Dave’s memory that this tournament will be filled with fun, laughs, good food and lots of prizes.
