ZAKOOR, Fr. Frederick John C.S.B.

Posted by on July 27, 2014

Born October 21, 1929. He was ordained on the Feast of Sts. Peter and Paul on June 29, 1958. A Basilian priest his ministry was in Education, both as a Teacher and an Administrator. He taught Religion, Physics, Canadian History and Mathematics at various Basilian High Schools: Catholic Central in Detroit, St. Mary’s College in Sault St. Marie, Aquinas Institute in Rochester NY and Assumption College School in Windsor. In 1967 he became Vice-Principal at ACS. For two years he prepared for the merging of St. Mary’s Academy. He supervised the planning and construction of an addition to accommodate an increase of population. In 1971, he moved to Michael Power High School in Toronto and taught Mathematics for nine years. He was instrumental in establishing a new department, Campus Ministry. During those years he spent three summers teaching Administration to Principals in St. Vincent Island and Kano, Nigeria. In 1980, he returned to Windsor to be Principal of F.J Brennan High School. It took 3 years to get the school financially solvent and to restore curriculum and discipline to where a school should be according to the Ministry. In 1982 Brennan developed a basic level four year program for students who could never go to a Catholic private school and graduate in an Academic program. He established bursaries for students who could not stay in the Catholic schools because of tuition. In 1985 full funding had begun and the financial concerns were over. With the new Catholic High School Board they were able to grow from two schools to five in the next four years. In 1989 he was appointed founding Principal of the fifth high school, St. Joseph’s. The first Fr. Zakoor Catholic Cup started in December 1984. On the last day of school before Christmas, the Brennan High School and St. Joe’s Hockey Teams play for the Cup. More than 1100 people, including a large number of alumni from both schools make it a tradition. “Starting the day with Mass gave me my strength. To pray with staff and students was a JOY” (Fr. Fred). In 1995 he retired from Education. Fr. Fred is survived by his sisters Gladys Howe and Louise Shaway, seven nieces and nephews along with fifteen great nieces and nephews and many friends. He was predeceased by his parents, James and Najla Zakoor, brother Edward and great niece Aubrey. Special thanks to Barbara Gambriel for your care and compassion. If you so desire, donations to the Basilian Father’s Mission would be appreciated by the family. Visitation Tuesday 3pm-9pm at Families First 3260 Dougall Ave. South Windsor, 519-969-5841. On Wednesday, friends are invited to join the family after 1pm at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church (834 Raymo Rd.) followed by Mass of Christian Burial at 2pm.
