Douglas Lee Zimmerman

Douglas Lee Zimmerman was born to Irvin Clifford and Grace Lenore (Gagnebin) Zimmerman on May 3, 1942 in Abbyville, Kansas. Doug finished high school in Satanta, Kansas where he loved playing football. He then joined the Air Force in 1961 and also married Lois A. Pearce on May 28, 1961, the love of his life. He continued on the Air Force life the next twenty years. They both loved the Air Force Life. While stationed in Anchorage, Alaska, they adopted their very special daughter, Charlene. We all enjoyed our travels overseas and in the United States.

Doug and Lois were married for 61 years and had a very fulfilling life which he enjoyed immensely. He truly enjoyed touring with their motorcycle club. He was also involved with the VFW and the American Legion. And we can not forget the he also enjoyed helping Dave Brown with his prairie dog population.

Doug passed on July 19, 2022 in the Beaver County Nursing Home.

He leaves his wife, Lois A. Zimmerman; daughter, Charlene Burns; three grandkids, James Burns, Malcom Burns, and Heather Burns; two nieces and two nephews, Karen Voorhees, Gary Zimmerman, Kevin Zimmerman and Kristi Diotte and a host of other family and friends.

I'm heartbroken to read of Doug's passing. Lois, I so cherish my memories of you both. Riding in your boat. I remember shooting prairie dogs. I wish I had found out sooner.

Of my memories of Doug cross my mind I recall going shooting with him at the Hug Hugoton landfill. He was so proud of his moose rifle. We had fun.
Many memories of Lois and Doug over the years. Praying for his family.

Doug and Lois were friends and we regret the health trials through which they passed during the past several years. Doug and I met at the local shooting range, and enjoyed comparing experiences about guns and shooting. We only found out a couple of weeks ago that Doug was in Beaver County Nursing Home, and had lost a lower leg. Our condolences go out to Loris and their daughter. God bless you.
