away unexpectedly, on Thursday, May 1st, 2014 at his home in Mead, Nebraska.
was born in Rhinelander, WI on December 19, 1986, to the late Ronald Holewinski
and the late Lesley Kirsch. Zane attended McKinley Elementary and Ben Franklin
Jr. High in Stevens Point, then graduated from SPASH in 2005. He is well
remembered for his cheerful demeanor and curly hair by many of his classmates
and instructors. He attended UWSP and as an employee of the Portage County
Humane Society he demonstrated his love of animals. In early 2012 he moved to
the Omaha area and worked as a veterinary assistant. In 2013 he joined the
Metro Credit Union family. As a teller, he discovered a passion and knack for
the banking industry. He was recently promoted into customer service. He will
be missed by the many friends and co-workers he had there. Zane was a dedicated
fan of the Green Bay Packers, Milwaukee Brewers and the UFC. He was an avid
follower of Badger football and basketball. In his large family, Zane
distinguished himself as the ‘go-to’ Uncle for a quick game of ‘Show No Mercy’
hoops in the driveway and intense sessions of Madden Football on screen. He
incessantly teased his sisters while he talked sports with his brothers-in-law.
He shared a love of literature, music, and comedy with his siblings and could
always be counted on to laugh through an argument. He was intensely loyal and
wonderfully himself. Zane lived his 27 years with a smile while surrounded by
family that loved him deeply.
