Sign guest book | Obituary

Mr. Zeimet was certainly a man with a Golden Heart. I was blessed essentially to be an extended part of the Zeimet family since the Elementary School/Little League days. Coach, Mister Z or Duwey as we've called him through the decades was always there for us. The Lifelong Cubs fan would give us rides to/from Bball practice, share his Coaching tips on being a better hitter or fielder, even Fixing a hole in the drywall. As for the Big Breakfasts...Legendary!! My parents still speak about how large the stack of pancakes, potatoes, steak and eggs that he could put down in one sitting. He loved to laugh....and I will always remember his laughter, likely more towards the crazy things we would do as kids. Most importantly, He was a Family Man! He lead by example and He was always there for his family and everyone who entered his home. Love You Mister Z and Thank You for Everything you taught us along the way.... Scot Stermitz

+Sorry for the loss of a loved one. My memory of Duane was when brought his brand new Ford black retractable convertible to show it off. He was very proud of his new purchase. Our garage took care of servicing it. St. Johns Sinclair Service Also played baseball with him on Grimes hardball team. Caught several games that he pitched in.

I will always remember Duane’s work ethic, his ability to have fun, and his voracious appetite. He was a great family man, and will be missed. Richie & Joanne Spizziri
