Obituary for Roy W. Zimbrick

Roy Walter Zimbrick was born December 19, 1933 to Matt and Marie Zimbrick in Portland, Oregon. He passed on November 26, 2019.

He is survived by his wife, Joyce Zimbrick of Grand Ronde Oregon; son, Grant Zimbrick and his wife Dorothy of Denver, Colorado; daughter, Dana Wilson of Grand Ronde; grandchildren, Chris (Maria), Emily (Charles), Anna (Jono), Lee (Amanda), Vince (Candi), Max (Louisa and Oksana), Karley and (Cody); great-grandchildren, Austin, Ethan, Elias, Ava, Louisa, Nora, and 2 on the way; brother, Richard Zimbrick and wife Violet of Grand Ronde; and many nieces, nephews, cousins and countless friends.

He was preceded in death by his daughter, Cristi Scholten; father Matt Zimbrick; and mother, Marie Amacher.
Roy was raised on Rowell Creek Rd. in Valley Junction, Oregon and attended school in Valley Junction and Willamina. He excelled in every sport in school and was recruited for College football but due to a knee injury was not able to play.

He married the love of his life, Joyce Huddleston, on March 14, 1953. They raised their children in Willamina and later moved to their home on Rowell Creek in Valley Junction.

Roy had logged with his father Matt during his high school years and later started Zimbrick Logging with his brother Richard. They operated the company for 50 years.

Roy was an avid hunter, fisherman, “Legendary Logger” and one of a kind. He was a lifelong Bulldog supporter and was inducted in Willamina High School Hall of Fame in the spring of 2019. He was also a member of the Willamina Christian Church.

He loved his family, his community and all school sports. He gave freely to so many and will be remembered always for his generosity, his love for his family and his unforgettable stories.

Services will be held at the Willamina High School gym on Saturday, December 7 at 2pm. A reception will follow.
In lieu of flowers the family would like contributions to be made to the Sports and Vo-Ag programs at Willamina High School in Roy’s memory. (Checks payable to WHS) Dallas Mortuary Tribute Center is caring for the family.

Joyce, Dana, Grant & Families. Roy was 10' tall & bullet proof, or maybe that was just hero worship. You are all in our prayers. We love you.
