Mr. David H. “Dave” Zimmerman, age 72 years, of Jefferson City, Mo., passed away Friday, September 27, 2019 at SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital surrounded by his loving family.

Dave was born February 18, 1947 in Springfield, Mo. the son of Jac W. and Rheba I. Wade Zimmerman. He was married on September 1, 1968 in Salem, Mo. to Sandra K. Rhinehart.

Dave was a 1965 graduate of Willow Springs High School and a 1969 graduate of the University of Missouri at Rolla with a degree in Civil Engineering. In college he worked with the Missouri Highway Department and it was during this time that he met his wife, Sandy. He later furthered his education by graduating with a Masters in Business Administration from Lincoln University in 1985.

Dave began his professional career with Union Carbide in Oak Ridge, Tennessee and then worked at Nucor-Vulcraft in Norfolk, Nebraska. Dave and his family moved to Jefferson City when a job opening came available at the Callaway Nuclear Plant for him. Dave enjoyed working at the nuclear plant for twenty-three years as a Senior Engineer until his retirement in 2003. He was a member of the Missouri Society of Professional Engineers. During retirement he was a civil engineering consultant to local builders and architects.

Dave was a member of the First Christian Church and the Elks Lodge, #513.

He was an avid golfer and sports fan. Dave loved being a member at Meadow Lake Acres County Club and golfing with his buddies. He would get coffee with his buddies some mornings or join them for the occasional card game. Dave enjoyed rooting for all the Missouri teams with family and friends: St. Louis Cardinal’s baseball, the University of Missouri sports, the Kansas City Royals and the Kansas City Chiefs.

Dave loved his family dearly and always cherished time with them. He will be remembered as a loving husband, father, and “Pop Z” by his grandson, Dylan.

Survivors include: his wife of fifty-one years, Sandy Zimmerman; two children, Dana Estes of Olathe, Kansas and Mark Zimmerman of Kansas City, Mo.; two brothers, his twin Dan Zimmerman of Rohnert Park, California and Jay Zimmerman and his wife Barbara of Nixa, Mo.; one sister, Janis Black of New Braunfels, Texas; one grandson, Dylan Estes; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

A Celebration of Dave’s Life will be held on Sunday, October 27, 2019 at Meadow Lake Acres Country Club. The celebration will start at 1:00 p.m. with sharing of memories and the Reverend Beau Underwood officiating. A reception will follow the service with light food and refreshments until 3:00 p.m. Sunday.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are suggested to the American Heart Assn. or the American Cancer Society.
