Harvey “Buster” Zemmer, 76, died April 25, 2003.

He was born to Charlie and Francis Zemmer on Feb. 2, 1927, at Baker City. After being dischargd from the U.S. Army in 1942, he remained in Oregon.

He went to work for Ellingson Lumber Co. about 1962 and worked there until his retirement. He married Jeanette on July 13, 1984.

They both loved hunting and fishing, so he and his best friend spent as many hours as they could going everywhere to hunt and fish. You could hardly drive a mile in any direction without him pointing to a spot where he had either shot or caught something.

Survivors include his wife and best friend, Jeanette; her children, Molly, Curtis and Donna; two stepchildren, Cathy and Dan Titus; two sisters, Emeline Wright of Prairie City and Josephine Stafford of Hood River; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his parents and three brothers, Jesse, Finley and Jerry.
