Timothy Grant Zahler, 68, passed away suddenly with his family and friends by his side. He was born to Harold and Della Zahler in Vancouver, WA. He graduated from Columbia River and Central Washington State College.
Tim taught Drivers Education and coached cross country at Columbia River High School. Throughout those years he coached two state track champions and record holders in the 3200 meters and 800 meters. Not to mention, countless district champions and state qualifiers.
His passion was running and fishing, fishing and fishing! Tim's last job was at Englund Marine in Astoria, where of course, he got to talk about fishing.
Tim is survived by his twin sisters Trudi Bankson (husband Ford), Randi Secker (husband Gib); niece Amy Lobey (husband Ron), nephew Bobby Secker; four grand nieces and nephews: Sammy, Andrew, Dylan, Bailey and numerous special friends. He was preceded in death by his parents and grandparents.
A Celebration of Life will be held at the Kalama Sportsman Club sometime in July or August.
Tim was our brother, uncle, nephew and friend
and will be truly missed by all who knew him.
