Hugh M. Zumbro took his final trip on May 11, 2021. He fought hard but succumbed to radiation-induced heart and lung disease/kidney failure. The flight was bumpy, but the landing was smooth and painless.
His journey began with his birth in Altus, Oklahoma on August 31, 1941 to H.D. and Alice Leona Tabb Zumbro. He completed high school in Altus and earned a B.S. degree in Accounting from Oklahoma State University in Stillwater. He served in the U.S. Army in South Korea, France (NATO), Belgium (NATO), and S. Vietnam at MACV Headquarters in Saigon.
He married Kathie on April 2, 1971 and was the very proud father of Allison Zumbro Weimer (Eric). He retired from American Stores in 2000. He loved travel (83 countries) and was an avid photographer. He is interred at Utah Veterans Cemetery and Memorial Park.
Per his wishes, there is no memorial. Those wishing to donate in his memory may send donations to Adopt a Native Elder (www.anelder.org).
