Christopher T. Zimmer (Dzwonowski), age 60, passed away unexpectedly at home Oct. 10, 2022.
Chris, also lovingly known as “Stretch” to many, was born August 31, 1962 in Des Plains, Ill. He attended Maine West High School and later started a career in printing, advancing from Press Helper to Prepress Supervisor at Alden Press in Elk Grove, Illinois. He moved to Las Vegas, NV in the late 1990’s furthering his career as a Prepress Supervisor at Creel Printing. There, he met his future wife (Jill) in 2006.
He will be remembered for his big voice, loud sneezes, multi-tasking, work ethic, gentle-giant demeanor, and a craving for more garlic. Throughout his life, he was an avid golfer, bowler, Denver Broncos fan and most of all, a huge Chicago Cubs fan.
Chris is survived by his wife Jill Zimmer of 11 years, his mother-in-law Donna Zimmer, many close friends and family members.
In lieu of flowers, please take a moment to do something good in your own community. A future celebration of life is planned.
Rest In Peace Chris
May you Rest In Peace. I still remember you as a little brat when we were young. Those were the days.
My heart is broken. Our thoughts are with you Jill.

He was a fun loving gentle giant. He always had my back at work and loved giving us shot. Will miss him

Our thoughts and prayers are with you!
Love , Mike and Kathy
