Gau-N.A. mourns death of Hans Zapf

Submitted 17Mar2005. Hans Zapf, Ehrenvorsitzender of the Trachtenverband Bayern, died on March 11. His passing is mourned by his many friends and admirers in Gauverband Nordamerika. Hans, who just recently celebrated his 75th birthday, was a Trachtler through and through whose work and accomplishments in the Trachtenverband are unequaled. His friendship towards and support of the Gauverband in North America opened many doors for us in Bavaria, and that friendship will always be treasured.

"Treu der Heimat" was Hans's motto, and he lived his life accordingly. Our deepest condolences go out to his wife, family, and fellow Trachtler. His enthusiasm, spirit, and wisdom will be sorely missed. Ruhe in Frieden, lieber Hans!
