John "Zeek" McCollum

October 15, 1930 — February 1, 2021

John (Jack, “Zeek”) McCollum


Age 90, of Kennedy Twp., passed peacefully at home on February 1, 2021. Husband of Carol (Kummer) McCollum. Son of the late Victor and Rosalia McCollum. Father of Stephen (the late Patricia) McCollum, Timothy McCollum and Kevin (Karen) McCollum. Beloved grandfather of Megan McCollum.  Brother of Rosemary Ventura. Preceded in death by his infant daughter, Amy Beth McCollum, and siblings, Victor McCollum, Edward McCollum, Eileen Harshman, Betty Homjak and Nancy Roedler. Also survived by many nieces and nephews. 


“Zeek” as most people knew him, devoted his free time to coaching his three sons in little league and running his duckpin bowling league. He was an avid outdoorsman with a love of hunting and fishing. He was a proud grandfather who cherished spending as much time as possible with his granddaughter. 


Due to the current pandemic, viewing will regrettably be private. Friends and family are welcome to attend a Mass of Christian Burial held at Archangel Gabriel Parish (St. Malachy Church) on Wednesday, February 3 at 10 a.m. Please wear a mask and observe social distancing. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
