Robert W. Eads “Zip”, died at the age of 92 on February 19, 2020 while at Hospice Care of St. Elizabeth.

A wonderful and patriotic man, Zip was proud to be an American and served his country in the U.S. Navy, working in Naval Aviation. He served his community by working as an orthopedic mechanic, specializing in medical prosthetics and orthotics for The Brace Shop in Cincinnati, Ohio. He served his friends and family by simply being the fun loving and social being that he was.

Zip loved anything and everything to do with his good ol’ home state of Kentucky. From UK basketball and football to bourbon and horses. Zip was sure proud to be a Kentuckian.

In his younger years, he appreciated being outdoors – boating, fishing and hunting. In his later years, he loved watching old movies, sports and listening to his music collection.  He also proudly supported causes close to his heart.

Zip is survived by his lifelong friend, Emille Walden; her children, Melinda (Phil) Hamm and Leslie (Steve) Strickland and their children, Logan Hamm and Olivia Strickland. He is now reunited with his beloved wife Sue Ann Eads; parents, Melinda and Clarence Eads and friend, Fred Walden.
