Ralph E.'s Story

Text size

Ralph E. Zimmerman, of Irondequoit, passed on Friday, June 30, 2017 at the age of 80.
Ralph and his wife, Marcia, raised their family in Rochester and enjoyed 45 years of life together. Most of his proud working years were as an engineer for Xerox.
Ralph was a man that was adored by all that knew him. He will be remembered for his wittiness and uncanny ability to make light-hearted jokes, even when the odds were against him. He loved Frank Sinatra, the nightly news, sailing, golfing, tennis, his TV remote and an extra challenging Sudoku puzzle. He made a new friend wherever he went and taught us that life is more enjoyable with a laugh and a smile (a strong Manhattan or an apple pie don't hurt either). We love you Ralph and will miss you greatly. Go Bills!
Pre-deceased by his wife, Marcia; brothers, Carl, Jack, Junior and Billy. He is survived by his children, Maureen (Robert) Hayes, Sharon (Alfred) Zimmerman-Quinto, Brian (Hanna) Zimmerman; grandchildren, Caitlin and Clare Hayes, Lilian and Noah Quinto, Katherine, Charles and Daniel Zimmerman; sister, Charlotte Smyth; many nieces and nephews.
His family will receive friends on Thursday, July 13th 4-7 PM at the funeral home (570 Kings Hwy S.). Friends are invited to meet the family Friday 9:30 AM at St. Kateri at St. Cecilia Church for his funeral mass. Interment Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.
