Raphael Zanyi

December 17, 1941 — April 7, 2020

Raphael J. Zanyi went to join the Lord on April 7, 2020.  He was born to John and Mary A. Petkosh- Zanyi on December 17,1941.  My Ray, a kind gentleman loved his family very much. Ray also loved and served the church where he lived.  He went from being a server to a religion teacher for over 40 years.  Ray served as a master of ceremonies for Bishop Quin in Cleveland and served St. James in Seguin, Texas.  He became a member of the K and C and loved being with them.  The other love of his life was working for the Nickel Plate R.R. and the hobby stores. Ray loved Seguin, Texas and all of the people that he met.  I would like to thank Deacon, Mrs. Bob Elliot, Johnny, Veronica and Vanessa San Miguel for bringing communion to Ray since 2013. I would also like to thank Betty Eckols, Father Greg, and Father Dennis for all that they have done for us.  He is preceded in death by Charles and Betty Ann Zanyi- Bender. Raphael is survived by his wife Mary E. Davie- Zanyi, his sister Jean M. Zanyi, brother- in- law Donald and Pat Davie and many nieces and nephews.  There will be a Funeral Mass on Friday June 19, 2020 at 2pm at St. James Catholic Church in Seguin, Texas with an inurnment at 3pm at St. James Catholic Church Cemetery.  Funeral services are under the direction of Goetz Funeral Home.
