Charlie (Charles) Zeimetz was born November 30, 1952 to Mike and Marie (Herwers) Zeimetz in St. Cloud. He served his country 2 years in the Marine Corps and 2 years in the Army. He spent his later years working at the Avon/Albany rest area and farming on his hobby farm. He lived life his way; there was the right way, wrong way and Charlie's way. He may have been rough around the edges but once you got past
it he was sarcastically funny, loved his family and always made sure no one was hungry and thirsty when visiting.
He leaves behind his children Tracey Zeimetz, Eureka CA; Karla (Scott) VanWienen, Elmdale; Kevin (Beth) Kunstleben, Brainerd; Marisa Zeimetz, St. Stephen; Karl (Stephanie) Zeimetz, Avon; and Merry Zeimetz, St. Cloud; along with 12 grandchildren.
He is preceded in death by his wife Carol and his mother and father.
