Obituary for Zivorad Despic

Zivorad Despic, age 72 of Shelby Twp., passed away peacefully on October 27, 2019.

Zivorad was born on December 21, 1946 to Radisa and Zivhn Despic in Serbia. In Serbia he married the love of his life Gora on December 15, 1973 and ended up immigrating with his beloved wife to the United States in the 70’s. Together, Zivorad and Gora had two sons; Goran and Dragisa. Zivorad loved to be a grandfather to his eight grandchildren and taking trips to Serbia to visit with his family. He was also extremely handy, and a jack of all trades.

Beloved husband of Gora Despic; cherished father of Goran (Danica) Despic, and Dragisa (Shannon) Despic; proud grandfather of Victoria (fiancée Peter), Zackary, Sabrina, Kayla, Sophia, Lucian, and Gabriel.
