Chuck Zimmerman II

Death of Chuck Zimmerman

From Jim Tuck, pastor, Phoenix and Camp Verde:

It is with great sadness we received a call from Joy Zimmerman to let us know her husband, Chuck, died this afternoon.  This is sudden, and it is a tremendous blow to Joy and their family and all the many brethren in many areas who loved him.   

Chuck retired in late 2016 due to health issues after serving many years as a pastor of churches throughout the country.    He has been in the Phoenix area living in Sun City where he and Joy made their home.  

At this time Joy and Chelsea, their daughter, are at the hospital, and Joan and I will be in touch with them soon.  Please refrain from calling Joy at this time due to the obvious immediate stresses on her.  More detailed information will be forthcoming as soon as possible.

Please be praying for God's loving comfort for Joy and all the family during this most difficult time.  We know their firm hope is in God's wonderful plan and the time of the resurrection when Christ returns.  He will be greatly missed, and his sacrifice and service will not be forgotten.  Cards of  comfort and encouragement may be sent to:

Chuck Zimmerman


Chuck Zimmerman died of a heart attack yesterday, November 7, 2018, less than a week before he would have reached age 70. Chuck was ordained an elder in September 1974. With his wife, Joy, he pastored a number of congregations before his retirement on November 30, 2016. Chuck and Joy were married 46 years.

Chuck started his ministry in 1970 as a ministerial trainee in Manchester, England, and Glasgow, Scotland. He went on to be a senior writer for the Personal Correspondence Department from 1971-1974. In 1974, he became associate pastor in Washington, D.C., and went into his first role as a pastor in 1975, in Altoona and Indiana, Pennsylvania.

Between 1977 and 2010, Chuck Zimmerman was pastor of Fort Collins, Colorado; Wheatland, Wyoming; Scottsbluff, Nevada; Fayetteville and Fort Smith, Arkansas; Northwest Phoenix; and Scottsdale, Arizona. From 2011 to 2016, he served in Florida in Tampa, St. Petersburg, Vero Beach, and Fort Myers.

At the time of his retirement, Mr. Zimmerman reflected on his work and stated: "Develop a motto that you can use all the years of your service to God and His People through Jesus Christ. Live that motto, your model of service, each day."
