On a rainy April 13th day in 1968 he married Kathleen (Milne) Zimmerman. They were married for nearly 50 years before her passing on December 29, 2017. Together the two of them lived in various cities in Wisconsin, but Wausau was where they called home.

He is survived by his two kids, Brian Biju Zimmerman and Lisa MeeHee Kirby (husband Matt). He also has 3 grand-daughters (Allison, Katelyn and Juliana Kirby) whom he loved and who loved him.
Dave was proud to be US Army Veteran and proud to have served his country through a tour in Vietnam. He loved old cars and working in his yard. He will be greatly missed but his many stories and memories will live on.
A small family service will be planned for a later date in the summer.
