Robert L. Zimmer 11/15/1922 - 8/15/2014 Bob was nicknamed "EZ-Z" by pilot buddies. EZ-Z has now taken his final flight. Served in the US Navy as an Aviator. Afterwards, he worked as an Airline Transport Pilot for Intermountain Aviation, Pacifica Alaska and Evergreen. A notable achievement was certification in the Air Rescue System, "Sky Hook", earning him a brief "fly-over" in the movie Thunderball. Survived by sister, Evelyn LeClaire (MN); sons, David (Cheryl), Jim (Claudia) and Bill (Ron); daughters, Debra, Bobbi, and six grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. The Zimmer family will hold a private Memorial Service in November. Arrangements by EVERGREEN MORTUARY.
