Zoltan Horvath

March 15, 1942 ~ May 28, 2018 (age 76)

    Zoli entered into rest on Memorial Day, May 28th of 2018. He will be remembered as a wonderful Husband, Father, and Friend.
He is survived by his wife Marion, sons Richard and Michael, daughters Miranda and Anne, and his neices Nikki, Marika, and Erica. As well as his grandchildren Robert and Annebelle, and his grand nephews Ryder, Guage, Slade, Ayrton, and neice Aviana.

    Having left his homeland of Hungary at age fourteen his adventures began! He immigrated to England with a group of young men after the Russian Revolution. In England he became a farmhand as did most of the refugees who were displaced after the war. He later became a Coal Miner as well as a Weaver. He then married and had his first two children, Richard and Anne.

    Years later Zoli had a divorce and his journey shifted to America, where he would start a new life full of bright prospects. After some time in the United States he eventually settled in the small, quiet town of Fremont, California with his brother Laszlo Horvath. Zoli persued a new career as a Drywall Contractor which he did until his retirement. Many years went by and in 1991 Zoli went on a job and he met "the best things that ever happened to him". Those things were his wife Marion, and their daughter Miranda. The three became a team and just one year later Zoli and Marion tied the knot at Mission Adobe in Fremont, California. Shortly after, their son Michael was born and the family was complete.

    Now Zoli was blessed with four wonderful children and he couldn't be happier. Zoli took great pride in his family, and enjoyed sharing their accomplishments with friends. Zoli was constantly on the phone chatting and telling jokes with friends and family from all parts of the world. He was a fun loving man that never stopped collecting friends, especially other Hungarians!

    He loved to visit his family in both England and Hungary and filled up his passport over the years.

    In 2011 Zoli retired. He and Marion relocated to the peaceful town of Valley Springs, California. Zoli embraced his retired life and spent most of his time gardening, playing with his dogs Kona and Molly, playing cards, and traveling. Zoli also loved to discuss history and yell at the politicians he saw on tv. But his favorite thing was spending quality time with family and friends. Zoli had a contagious smile and always filled the room with laughter. His favorite foods were head cheese... Russian perogis, and Polish kilbasa.

    Zoli often said that he felt at home in both Hungary and America. He will be laid to rest with his Mother and Brother in his hometown of Beled, Hungary and at the Family Residence in Valley Springs, California
Yes, we will miss you when you're gone. We already do.
You will live in our hearts forever.
