Zadock Monroe Dismuke IV, 43


Mr. Zadock Monroe Dismuke, IV, age 43, longtime resident of Ellwood City and beloved husband of Breanna Dismuke, lived a happy and fulfilled life dedicated to service.  He passed away at his home on May 25, 2022.  Born in Paducah, Kentucky, on June 30, 1978, he was the beloved son of Zadock (Michelle) Dismuke, III, and Bonnie (Dennis) Neese and brother to Leslie (Jason) Richards and Stephanie (Shawn) Gaines.

Zadock was a dedicated Police Officer since 1999, a calling he had since the 6th grade. He dedicated his life to serving the communities of Ellwood City for 7 and a half years, Ambridge for 15 and a half years, and was currently serving Sharon since November 2021. Zadock was passionate about law enforcement and mentoring new officers around him.  All who knew and loved Zadock understood that his priorities were his faith, family, children, and community. Zadock was an incredible hard worker and when not spending time on the street protecting and serving his community, you would find him on his farm tending to his cows, plowing snow, hunting, fishing, or spending time with his family and close friends. He will be dearly missed.

Zadock is survived by his beloved wife of 6 years, Breanna and their two children: Monroe and Rylee, along with his loving daughters, Jenica Dismuke (Reed) of Shaler, Alyssa of Ellwood City, Camryn of Rochester and granddaughter Malia.  He is also survived by his loving Uncles, Mark (Kathy) Eklum, Kyle (Susan) Eklum, Michael (Kim) Dismuke and Phillip Dismuke of North Carolina, and many cousins. He was a loving Uncle to our Children, Tyler and Tanner Richards, Noah and Savannah Gaines, and Elena and Andre Escobar.

He will be missed by his beloved in-laws Dru and Kris Duffy, and Juan and Bridget Escobar (sister-in-law).

    Big Z, what a giant personality! You really had a youthful zest for all that was right with the world. Your charismatic personality, kindness, and light the room smile will be missed by all. Z you definitely protected but even more importantly, you served always with kindness, warmth, and wit. You always treated me like a brother and it was always appreciated. You were truly one of a kind. I know your wonderful daughters, son, kind, wife, and precious granddaughter will carry on the Z legacy.

    God Bless! Eric T Gibson “Gibby”
