David was a skilled salesman in the Detroit area for over 55 years and was a fountain of knowledge regarding the metro Detroit area. He loved watching Detroit sports on TV especially his beloved Detroit Tigers. He especially enjoyed spending time with his friends and family, and could tell stories for hours.

He is survived by his loving children, Jim (Michelle) Hoffman, Cheri (Doug) Burley, Beth (Paul) Chuckran, and Julie Schaefer. He was the adored grandfather (Papa) of Jordan Biedul, Jason and Michael Hoffman, Samantha, Natalie and Scott Schaefer.

Mr. Zatkin was the beloved husband of the late Gloria Zatkin; brother of the late Donna, Richard, and Larry Zatkin.

Metro Detroit’s Jewish funeral homes have agreed that families should follow the directive of Centers for Disease Control and restrict the size of gatherings to no more than 10, for at least the month of April.

For now, in-person funeral attendance will be limited to only immediate family. Otherwise, funerals may be viewed live and recorded on chapel websites.

Together, we thank the community for understanding during this unusual and challenging time.
