David Zimbauer, 71, of rural Augusta passed away at his home on Friday, Dec. 2, 2005, in the care of his family and St. Joseph’s Hospice.

Dave was born April 21, 1934, in Foster Township, Clark County, to Nick and Leona (Hizer) Zimbauer. He attended school in Fairchild. He served in the U.S. Navy during the Korean Conflict as an electrician on the USS Consolation. After he was discharged, he returned to Fairchild.
