Charles Joseph Zimmer III

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Charles Joseph "Chas" Zimmer III, 61, of Lewisburg, passed away Monday evening, August 18, 2014, at his residence.

A memorial service was held on Saturday, celebrating and honoring Chas' life on what would have been his 62nd birthday. Heritage Funeral Home assisted the family with the arrangements.

Charles was born Aug. 23, 1952, in Trenton, N.J., and was the son of the late Charles Joseph Zimmer Jr. and Eugenia Stoy Zimmer. He was retired from General Motors. In his free time Chas loved mowing and gardening. He had a talent for being able to plant anything and having it grow into something of beauty. When the weather forced him inside, he enjoyed watching television or working on the computer searching the latest stock trends, inquiring about the needs of his plants, or simply learning new information.

He is survived by his wife, Donna Thompson Zimmer of Lewisburg; two sisters, Patricia Gore of Franklin and Barbara Jean (John) McCullough of Trenton, N.J.; a brother-in-law, Howard Thompson Jr. of West Virginia; two sisters-in-law, Debbie Stout and Darla (Mike) Jones, both of Levittown, Pa.; and several nieces and nephews.

The family wishes to thank Hospice Compassus for their care and concern for the family during Chas' illness, and requests that memorial contributions be made to Hospice Compassus of Columbia, 1412 Trotwood Ave, Ste 5, Columbia, TN 38401.
