  3. Candle 5We worked with Dr. Z most of his 32 years @ MARMC & he was always very professional & very accomodating – often in very intense situations.. We truly appreciated all the favors he bestowed upon us & our families. RIP Doc ! Dave & Ann Taylor

  4. Candle 2Mike and I were friends from the second grade through high school. We spent a lot of time together while in the second grade. I was born February 12, 1946 so our birthdays were only five days apart. We would walk to and from school together often. I’ve thought about him often over the years. I had no idea he lived in Farmington, Mo. He never came to the class reunions. My heart goes out to his wife and family because I’m sure he will be missed by all.

  5. Candle 1Such a good man, so kind and concerned for our cancer patients. He made a difference in so many lives.
    I’m sorry for your loss but take comfort in the many wonderful memories you have of your time together. May he Rest In Peace !!

  6. My prayers are with Sally & all the family. Such a kind caring man. He was one of many that made the hospital the great place it was. He gave so much to helping others. He always smiled said hello & you knew he appreciated you. Stay strong.

  9. To my dear friend Sally and the entire Zaricor family, at a time like this, there are never words enough to express sympathy for the loss that so many of us feel so deeply. Mike was a good man whose family meant everything to him. He was a devoted husband and father, and more recently, a grandfather and Great-grandfather. He was a brilliant physician and a mentor. To many of us, he was a wonderful friend and confidant. He was a guy you could always depend on for a laugh, a good word, and a shoulder when you needed one. He was dependable and trustworthy, down to earth and true blue. I will miss him greatly.
    Rest well, my friend. Until we meet again…
