John F. "Bucket" Zimmer IV, 54, of Roca, passed away on March 12, 2014. John was born on his parents' first wedding anniversary, Feb. 7, 1960. He was preceded in death by his parents, John F. Zimmer III and Rosemarie. A lifelong Lincolnite, John graduated from Southeast High School in 1978. He was a retired network administrator with Pegler/Sysco.

John was a biker, and loved riding his Harley Davidson. Behind the tough guy exterior was a soft-hearted teddy bear who was always willing to help his friends and family. John loved country living, and in his spare time enjoyed the challenge of fixing computers, riding his motorcycle, and working on his 1960 Thunderbird. He also enjoyed making creative yard art, and shooting the occasional bowling pin from the back deck.

Survivors include wife, Lynda Zimmer of Roca; son, John Zimmer V, Nate & Kayla Johanson and Shawn & Rachel Johanson all of Lincoln; brother and sister-in-law, William & Veronica Zimmer of Ashland; sister & brother-in-law, Ann & Kevin Colony of Omaha; grandchildren Trenton and Landyn; many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and many special friends.
