Herbert Heinrich Zimmer

September 21, 1927 - November 9, 2011


It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our dear father and Opa. Herbert was predeceased by his beloved wife Sheila and his parents at an early age. He leaves behind daughters Mary (Karl), Jennifer (Kent), Karen (Jonathan) and grandchildren Katelyn, Meagan, Daniel, Blake, Bo, Joel, Johnny and family in Germany.

Herbert was raised in Karlsruhe, Germany where he learned at an early age to persevere through difficult times. He found great joy playing soccer for his city team. In 1951 Herbert moved to Canada and eventually settled in Powell River where he met and married the love of his life Sheila in 1965. Herbert and Sheila established Powell River Nursery which allowed them to share their love of gardening with the community.

Herbert was a loving husband, father and Opa as well as a great friend to many. Herbert’s passion, humour and wisdom will always be remembered lovingly and above all his certainty in his faith in God.

A service will be held to honour Herbert’s life on Saturday, November 26 at 11 am at Evangel Pentecostal Church with a reception to follow
