Ace W Zenger

Ace W. Zenger, born October 18, 1931 to Ishmael and Helen Cable Zenger, passed away April 3, 2018 surrounded by family. 

He married Sherrie Butcher on July 7, 1973.

After serving in the Navy, he worked for Carver's Sheet Metal for 18 years.  He retired in 1994 from Local #66 in Seattle, Washington.

Ace was a kind and gentle man.  A hard worker, never idle; always fixing, repairing, making things new again.

He loved the outdoors, golf, Harleys and his Father in Heaven.

The true gift of his life was his family.  He was an example of strength, patience, understanding and love to all that knew him.

He is survived by his wife, Sherrie; children:  Bobbi (Brian), Tim (Carrie), Jodie, Heather (Karey) and two daughters from previous marriage, Roxanne and Steffany; one brother, Richard; and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Celebration of Life to be announced.

I will always remember the joy he had when talking to my about his motorcycle.

Rest in peace, brother. May the road be clear before you, the rain always behind and sunshine always.

To all the Zenger family,

Roxie let me know about Ace's passing. I want to express how sorry I am for your loss. After reading his obituary and the comments placed here, he seemed like he was a good loving man. At this difficult time in your lives, I pray that God will grant you the serenity and peace that you need to get through this, and I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Grandpa is my example, I've never known a harder worker or a more selfless man. If I end up half the man he is I will know I did pretty good. I'll miss his stories, the clap and rubbing of his hands together as he would smile while sharing his funny tale. He was an honest person some might say to a fault but it's a trait not common enough in these times. I'll miss him a lot more than words describe. I wish I would've spent more time with him. More early morning swims, more stories, more time watching him fix things. I love you Grandpa and I'll never forget you.
