On April 2, Oro Valley residents gathered to remember one of their own. The town dedicated a Texas ebony tree in the Cañada del Oro Riverfront Park to Zev Cywan, the late OV man who worked tirelessly to support the town he loved so much. Oro Valley Mayor Satish Hiremath, Mike Zinkin, a close friend of Cywan’s; and other members of the community, above, surround the memorial tree. Cywan was a familiar face at most town council, and board and commissions meetings. He died earlier this year at the age of 71 after battling for several months with health problems.
When Zev Cywan passed away on Jan. 17, Oro Valley mourned the loss of one of its most dedicated residents. They shared stories of his work to better the community and the positive impact he had on the people and projects he touched.
A Texas ebony tree was planted at Riverfront Park in Oro Valley in honor of Zev Cywan, who passed away in January. The tree dedication ceremony will be held at the park this Saturday at 10 a.m.
