I got this information last minute yesterday. Yesterday was the funeral of John Zacherle. It was at 2:00 pm at the Plaza Jewish Community Chapel. The Chapel is located at 630 Amsterdam Ave, New York, NY 10024, USA. I hope it was a proper and many attended to honor him. His remains have been cremated and will be cared for by his family. Their was a live stream on the chapels site for the service. Which is interesting never heard about that before.
