Wayland "Sam" Zimmerman was born on August 22, 1944, in LeMars, Iowa, to Roy and Wilma Zimmerman. His father’s farming occupation led the family to live in several locations: Iowa, Minnesota, and Nebraska before moving to Wayne, Nebraska. Wayland graduated from Wayne High School. While in High School, Wayland met Joyce Dangberg and they were united in marriage on October 3, 1964. They resided in Carroll and Ponca Nebraska, until they moved to Vermillion, South Dakota. The couple were blessed with three daughters (Nadyne, Nicki, and Heidi).

Later on, Wayland moved to Sioux City, Iowa, and married Susan Newell on April 13, 1985. They were also blessed with three children (Megan, Michael, and Michelle).

After high school, Sam worked in Pierce and Ponca in grocery stores as a butcher. He then became interested in the camping business and spent most of his adult life selling recreational vehicles. He will be remembered as a “hard worker,” and a person who enjoyed socializing with family and friends.

Family members who mourn his passing include his wife, Susan, daughters, Nadyne (James Walker) Zimmerman, Nicki (Richard) Zimmerman-Manero, Heidi (Paul) Johnston, Megan, Michael, and Michelle Zimmerman. Grandchildren include, Staci (Joby) Wuestewald, Shelby, Shandra, and Samuel Hanson, Bailey Zimmerman and Keegan Johnston, Keirnan Zimmerman and Grandpup Delaney. Sam has three great-grandchildren, Jordon, Jaxson, and Josie Wuestewald. Included are his siblings, Deloit (Janet) Zimmerman, Curtis (Jane) Zimmerman, brother-in-law, Ron Honkomp, and several nieces and nephews.

Wayland was proceeded in death by his parents Roy and Wilma Zimmerman, a sister, Beth Honkomp, and Grandpup, Dakota.

The Zimmerman family wishes to thank the doctors and nurses of Unity Point Health Hospital, the staff at Prime Assisted Living, the staff at Recovery Health, and the staff at Waterbury Funeral Service.
