Reflections for Officer Mark H. Zelewski

Mark (Zeke as we called him in the Air Force) was a stellar individual. Mark was kind, generous, honest and the best friend I have ever had. His death saddens and angers me even today January 2021. Mark and I were in the 2nd Air Force together stationed at Clinton Sherman Air Force Base in 1959, 60, 61 and 62. I was younger than Mark. After we became acquainted he tucked me under his Wing and looked out for me during my entire enlistment, I cherish those days. My hope is that those Cowards responsible for his Death were punished to the full extent of the Law. My condolences to his Wife Voncille, his Parents and all those lives he touched with his gentle and understanding hands during his time on this earth. RIP Zeke, I have missed you for years.

I went through the OCPD recruit school with Mark and we and our wives became friends. Mark and I were partners from soon after finishing recruit school until a few weeks before his death. Mark was an intelligent and highly capable person. He had a charming sense of humor and was very likable. He was an excellent officer and served the community well. He would have gone far in his career.Mark was a positive influence in the lives of those who knew him.
