Obituary: Tom Katica, ZF Marine Group

Thursday, July 22, 2010

It is with sadness that the ZF Marine Group recognizes the passing of Thomas P. “Tom” Katica, our colleague and long time Account Manager for the Western Region.  On July 8, 2010, after a two year battle with cancer, Tom finally succumbed peacefully in his home on Whidbey Island, surrounded by family.
“This is a great loss, not only for ZF Marine, but the marine industry as a whole,” said , President and General Manager, ZF Marine LLC. “Tom’s passion for our business and this industry was clearly evident every single day.  His warm smile greeted everyone he met, and his infectious personality created many life long friendships.   We extend our deepest sympathies to his fiancée Sara Jewell and the entire Katica family.”

Tom Katica's life will be celebrated with a memorial service at St. Anne's Church, Seattle, on Friday, July 30, at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Passenger Vessel Foundation would be greatly appreciated. (
