Carl N. Zimet Obituary
Carl N. Zimet of Denver passed away on November 19. Carl was husband of Sara Zimet, father of Gregory (Lynne Sturm) Zimet & the late Andrew (Linda) Zimet, and grandfather of Patrick Zimet, Hannah Zimet, Adam (Amanda) Helgesen & Josh (Geralyn) Helgesen. Carl lived a remarkable life. He was born in Vienna Austria on June 3, 1925. In 1938, his parents recognized the growing threat of Nazism and sent him to safety in England via the Kindertransport. He spent several years in England, surviving the Blitz, before he was reunited with his parents (Leon and Gisela) and older brother (Joseph) in NYC. He served in the U.S. Navy, then graduated from Cornell University, and received his doctorate in clinical psychology from Syracuse University. After working in Palo Alto, CA, Albany, NY, and New Haven, CT, Carl moved in 1963 to Denver to become Chief of the Division of Clinical Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry at University of Colorado School of Medicine. He is recognized locally and nationally as a gifted teacher, clinician, administrator, and advocate for clinical psychology. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, friend, mentor, and colleague and will be greatly missed. Private services will be held, but a public celebration of his life is planned for the spring of 2016. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Planned Parenthood of America or to The Anti-Defamation League. A more detailed online obituary will be posted at: http://www.feldmanmortuary.com
