Severyn Zborowski
September 28, 1969 – November 20, 1995

Sev had asthma all of his life, but that never stopped him from enjoying everything and everybody he came in contact with.  Even though he was a Corrections Officer, he had a kind and gentle soul earning him the respect of everyone.  He could walk into a room full of strangers and leave with many new friends.  Asthma took his life when he was only 26 and over 600 people attended his funeral.  His parting gesture was the donation of his two corneas to give sight to two strangers.  Although his life was short, he lived it to the fullest.
