Wesley James Zooberg

May 15, 2013 - October 13, 2016

Wesley James Zooberg, 3, of Virginia Beach, VA, returned to his heavenly home on October 13, 2016. His final days were spent at home, surrounded by loved ones. Wesley’s life may seem too short to some, but as we sing God’s praises, we try to remember that quality of existence far exceeds quantity of time in which one lives. His sweet smile, cackling laugh, and nurturing nature brought joy to all around him.

Although he spent over half his life battling cancer, Wesley showed a fierceness that never dampened. He fought hard to the very end. He loved superheroes, stickers, art, playing games, and cuddling with his blankie. Wesley was a mama’s boy, beloved son, treasured brother, and a kindred spirit of his little sister. Wesley is survived by his parents, Peter and Amber Zooberg, brothers Bryson and Nicholas Zooberg, sister Elsa Zooberg, paternal grandparents Carl and Susan Zooberg, maternal grandparents James and Hyang Mentzer, and his uncles and aunts.

A memorial service and reception, open to the public, will be held in Wesley’s honor on Saturday, October 22, 2016 at 2pm at Altmeyer Funeral Homes, 5792 Greenwich Rd, Virginia Beach, Va. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to his fundraiser by clicking HERE.

What our families say...

In my opinion, there is no better facility in Virginia than Altmeyer Funeral Homes. Not only was Chris Sisler there to hold my hand every step of the way, his family members were holding the door on the day of the funeral to help and encourage me. I will never forget their grace. He led me and my family through the process as a personal friend and neighbor, and as the ultimate professional.
