On June 9, 2019, RICHARD ALAN ZATULOVE (Rich), born February 18,1950 in Newark, NJ to Lenore Cohen and Robert Paul Zatulove of Hillsdale, NJ, both now deceased has passed away. Brother to Ina Zatulove Segal, now deceased in Haverhill MA, and leaves his brother-in-law Larry Segal of Haverhill, MA. and his only nephew, Jeremy Segal and his wife Cori and his grand nephew Adam and grand niece Carly. Richard was very close to his friend Linda Rickenbacker of Kannapolis, NC, his cousins Janet and Bo Johnson of Rockaway, NJ, Arlene and Joe Aquino of Oveido FL,and their families Daniel and Joanne Johnson, Douglas and Heather Johnson, and Lauren Couture.

Richard graduated from Southern New Hampshire University, and began work at Filenes Department Store in metro Boston. He did procure a discount for an original “Bowmar Brain” for Larry! He was, until his passing, a music lover and a movie fanatic. He also had a car passion, and his brother-in-law maintains that "he really knew a lot of things!” He moved to Camden, NJ to partner with his father at a Cosmetics Rep company, then moved to Portland, ME and finally settling in Kannapolis, NC.

In Kannapolis, Richard was an employee, financial manager and Board member at the Community Free Clinic and was also President of the “Friends of the Library” in Kannapolis.

Shortly before his beloved sister Ina passed away 2.5 years ago, Richard was able to be by her bedside and provide her the strength and support for her to face the end…It was a special moment for two siblings who loved each other deeply to comfort each other.

The family appreciates the kindness and friendship that embraced Richard by the congregation of the Trinity United Methodist Church. A memorial service for Rich will be held at Trinity United Methodist Church in Kannapolis on Tuesday, June 25, 2019 at 11:00 AM officiated by Rev. Tracy Love and Rev. Kirk Tutterow. A reception at the church for all of Rich’s family and friends will follow the service.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Community Free Clinic, 528 A Lake Concord Rd NE, Concord, NC 28025 or the Kannapolis Friends of the Library, 850 Mountain St., Kannapolis, NC 28081 or Trinity United Methodist Church, 416 E. First Street, Kannapolis, NC 28083.
