James Scott Zanos
July 1959 ~ September 2020
On September 25, 2020, James “Uncle Jimmy” Zanos, the life of the party, left us. For a man with only 9 fingers, he lived the life of 10 men. He was somebody that could always be depended on to help you change your spark plugs, talk you through a difficult belt replacement, or get those pesky extra beers out of your fridge for you. Any day that he could spend with those that he cared about, preferably with NASCAR on TV or a car on a jack stand, that was a good day to Uncle Jimmy. He was a friend to many and family to the lucky few and he will be missed dearly.
Jimmy was preceded in death by his parents Don and Loretta Zanos. He is survived by his sister Cyndi (Chris) Tiernan of Turlock, nephews Kyle (Ashley) Tiernan of Turlock, and Austin (Katie) Tiernan, also of Turlock, and many aunts and uncles.
We ask that in lieu of crying for our dear friend, that you instead put on a marathon of The Three Stooges and do your best impressions. It’s what he would’ve wanted. Nyuk Nyuk Nyuk Uncle Jimmy, Nyuk Nyuk Nyuk.
