Ronald Burt Zedd
NORFOLK—Ronald Burt Zedd, 80, of Norfolk, died peacefully on July 22, 2018, after a brief illness. He lived in Norfolk his entire life and was blessed with a wide network of family and friends, all of whom loved him very deeply. He was best known for his sweet personality, kindness and most of all for his inimitable sense of humor. He brought joy to everyone he touched.

Ronnie graduated from Maury High School, UVa and the William & Mary Law School, then practiced law skillfully for 53 years. He was an avid golfer, racquetball player, and enjoyed crosswords and the Arts. He felt most at home on Colley Avenue, where he would regale everyone he met with stories and humor derived from a life well lived.

He was predeceased by his loving wife, Judith Golding Zedd; his parents, Maxwell and Burnett Shuman Zedd; and his brother,
Morton Zedd, of blessed memory. He is survived by his sons, Gordon and Barton; and grandchildren, Jacob, Michael and Eliot, who will treasure every moment they had with this sweet man. Also surviving in a close-knit family are his loving sister, Kay Zedd Kesser, his brother-in-law Barry Kesser, sisters-in-law, Leslie Zedd, Linda Cohen (David) and Sandra Peskin (Howard), and many nieces and nephews.

Funeral services were held at Congregation Beth El. H. D. Oliver Funeral Apts. Online condolences may be sent to the family through
