ZIEMER, Herbert “Herb” Rolf 83, died July 21st, 2018, at Kaiser Hospital from complications related to a stroke. He was surrounded by loving family. Born in Germany, Herb spent World War II as a child living in England before moving to the United States. He met his wife Linda in San Francisco, and eventually they would move to Sebastopol. Herb taught history and geography for over 30 years at Comstock Jr High School. He loved to travel and work in his garden at his Sebastopol home. Soccer was another big passion for Herb and eventually his family. Herb and his family moved to Sebastopol and he started the Sebastopol Youth Soccer League (now Wesco) in 1975. Over the next 40 years, Herb helped grow the sport of soccer in Sebastopol, Sonoma County and Northern California. Herb leaves his wife of 57 years, Linda Ziemer, son Marcus and daughter-in-law Trisha, daughter Heidi, son Andrew and daughter-in-law Shawna, son Benjamin and daughter-in-law Daniela, son Christopher and daughter-in-law Renee, and twelve grandchildren. Herb also leaves family in Germany. A celebration of Herb’s life will be held on Friday August 10th, 6:00 p.m. at Sonoma Academy. Sonoma Academy is located at 2500 Farmers Lane, Santa Rosa, 95404. In lieu of flowers, the family is asking that you consider a donation in Herb’s honor to one of the non-profit Nor Cal Premier youth soccer clubs in your area, or to Sonoma State University Men’s Soccer Program, where he enjoyed watching his sons coach and play.
