LANARK—Irv Zier, 85, of Lanark, went to be with his Heavenly Father on Friday, Feb. 21, 2020.

Irv graduated from Lanark High School with the Class of 1953. He faithfully organized the alumni reunion for many years.

He honorably served in the U.S. Navy after high school and spent most of his vocational years owning and operating a hardware store.

He was passionate about his faith in Christ, his family, all things gardening, and baking for everyone. He could fix anything and was an amazing card player. Playing golf with the guys was a weekly highlight.

Irv was a member of Dutchtown Brethren Church. He loved Jesus with all his being and he loved to share Jesus with everyone.

Irv was married to Donna until her death in 1995.

He is survived by his current wife, Patti; his children, Jon Zier (Elise), Stephanie Brewer (Michael), and Kimberly McKnight (Thomas); 10 grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by two grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 28, at the Dutchtown Brethren Church in Milledgeville. Burial will be at the Lanark Cemetery with a ceremony by the Milledgeville American Legion.
