Please provide a complete translation from the Hebrew. I believe the name of the deceased is Wolf or Zev. The family surname is Zuckerberg. Thank you.

The translation is as follows:

"Here is buried our dear father Zev Tuvye, Ben/(son of) Reb Yaakov, who died at the age of 70 years on Thursday, the 25th day of the Hebrew month of Shvat (followed by the Hebrew year). May his soul be bound up in the bonds of eternal life".

Zev Tuvye is a double given name. Zev is Hebrew and the Yiddish equivalent for it is Wolf.

The word "Reb" is used as a honorific title preceding his father's single given name, however it does NOT imply rabbi.....Jo
