Zap was born near the city of Chicago, Illinois, according to the biography on the city’s website.

He graduated with a Degree in Anthropology from Wheaton College in Illinois.

“Married to Joyce and with their first child, Bob and Joyce moved to Holland, Michigan where he earned a Master of Theology Degree from Western Seminary,” the biography said.

Zap and his wife had twins in Michigan and later moved to New York State, the city said.

“They reared numerous foster children and adopted one,” the biography said. “They then went to the Mescalero Indian Reservation and while there, adopted three children. Coming to Andrews, Bob served the Andrews Presbyterian Church and later, the First Christian Church.”

Congressman K. Michael Conaway issued the followed statement on the passing of Andrews Mayor Bob Zap:

“Suzanne and I are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Andrews Mayor Bob Zap. It was an honor to have had the opportunity to work with Bob, as he insisted on being called, on issues that were important to the City of Andrews. Bob, who was a Chicago native, was a pillar of the Andrews community. He was a man of great faith, who with his wife, Joyce, fostered and adopted several children. His contributions to Andrews included both his government service and also his service to the Andrews Presbyterian Church and the First Christian Church. Andrews is richer thanks to the contributions that Bob made and he will be missed. We offer Joyce and his children our condolences. They are in our prayers.”
