'Tll call a tow- truck and drop him off down at Bob Evans where it's cooler." A self-proclaimed humanitari- an, Fagg said, "That's the other side of 'lower, slower Delaware,' we're more laid back and we care more about our community." Fagg is a resident who truly does appreciate everything about his community from favorite places to new businesses, the peo- ple and the environment. "When I wake up in the morning I want to know what's going on in Re- hoboth, I don't want to know what happened in Ocean City, I don't care what happened in Washington, D.C." Fagg knows his neighbors and wants to take care of the people he knows. "We get a sunset and a sunrise, we're so lucky. What do they pay for in New York for a view?" Growing up Fagg never missed a summer at his family's home in Dewey Beach and always consid-, ered this area his home. "I tell my 10 year-old son, 'Don't be de- ceived about people. We live in a nice place.'" dler, Ariz., and Ronald Rickards of Seaford; three sisters, Anna Marie Lynch of Franklinville, N.J., Helen Ferguson of Palm Bay, Fla., and Edna Wooten of Dover; seven grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren. Services were held at the Long Neck Chapel of Melson Funeral Services, Millsboro, with burial in Conley's Chapel Cemetery, Ango- la. Arrangements were by Melson Funeral Services, Long Neck. Anthony C. Zulkowski, retired from GM  Anthony C. Zulkowski, 89, for- merly of Wilmington and Pot- Nets, died Sunday, Dec. 26, 2004, at his home in Inverness, Fla., sur- rounded by his wife, and daughter and son-in-law, Carol and Wayne VanDyke. Fagg runs his business the way he runs his life - never making plans and always ready to help. "Yesterday for instance, a little old lady over at St. George's Church calls me, says she only has four dollars." The woman, who locked herself out of her car, was lucky to catch Fagg as he was driving nearby. "I said to her, 'Have you ever heard of a 15 per- cent senior discount? Well I usu- ally give a $15 one, besides.' " Added Fagg, "I hadn't done my good deed for the day." Fagg, a man who talks a mile a minute is both modest and proud. He cannot run out of things to say about his community. "I'm a very proud Delawarean. I love my state. Have you ever seen the first star on the flag? That's me." Nor can he run out of things to say about his family. "My kids always had a mom and a dad and we're a minority. We're very fortunate. My wife and I - we're soul mates, we were just that lucky." But he nearly forgets to mention he won Man of the Year from WGMD. Had he not insisted, mid-inter- view at Dunkin Donuts, to buy a cup of coffee for someone he rec- ognized, that recent recognition would have gone untold.

Servides were held at St. "I'm no different than that guy over there," Fagg said, gesturing across the room, "But I'm proud of my life and I wouldn't change a thing if I could." He says he's no Superman (though he does have a Superman sticker on the front of his truck be- cause "there ain't nobody who can unlock cars better than me"), but he also claims to be "as local as it gets. I put all my money back in my community. I serve my com- munity." Fagg said he doesn't like to make plans because the future doesn"t matter as, much as the present. "You can t t, ake it with you when you go, it s what you leave behind that matters,'-- said Fagg.
