Funeral services for Fritz “Simon” Zimmerle are now available. A dedicated rocker, Simon riled up the crowds before ... and during ... concerts for decades.

Rockers all over the Borderland have been wondering what was next following the announcement of Simon's death. It turns out that, it will be a while before his services will be held. According to All That Music's Facebook page:  "Due to logistical & scheduling considerations, Simon’s service has been tentatively scheduled for Saturday, January 7, 2017."

Simon's sister Patti found out about her brother's death via Facebook and, once she was located, arrangements could finally proceed. Unknown to most, Simon was a veteran and, therefore, will receive full military honors and internment at Fort Bliss National Cemetary.
