Zeus’s passion included artistry, philosophy, astrology, Greek mythology, and the list goes on, who never met a stranger. As a child he loved to sketch and play with childhood friends from his neighborhood. He impacted more people than ever imaginable. Often, he would find friends from all walks of life. He was a caring tender-hearted man who loved his mother unconditionally. That love inspired him to become an impressive worldwide artist. Some of the best ways to sum up his presence; intellectual, very charming, undeniable laughter. His resilience under pressure. Nation loved, a true king. Zeus was priceless. He will be missed dearly, his life ended but his legacy lives on. A true inspiration to future generations.
