On April 2, Oro Valley residents gathered to remember one of
their own. The town dedicated a Texas ebony tree in the Cañada del
Oro Riverfront Park to Zev Cywan, the late OV man who worked
tirelessly to support the town he loved so much. Oro Valley Mayor
Satish Hiremath, Mike Zinkin, a close friend of Cywan’s; and other
members of the community, above, surround the memorial tree. Cywan
was a familiar face at most town council, and board and commissions
meetings. He died earlier this year at the age of 71 after battling
for several months with health problems.
