Dear NNPDF Families and Friends,

It is with deep heartache that we notify our NPD family membership of the passing of Patrick Chandler Zimmerman (February12, 2000 – September 24, 2016), who boldly fought the NPC battle for 16 years.

Patrick loved riding horses (especially Yetti), swimming and spending time at the family’s ranch, The Faded Rose. When he developed cabin fever ~ a good chocolate chip cookie and a trip to Cabela’s were top priority!  He continued to do all these wonderful things in life and enjoyed every minute as he battled Niemann-Pick Disease.

To Patrick’s loving parents, Cindy & Steve, please know that your NNPDF family is here for you and holding you all in our hearts and thoughts.  We are truly heartsick for you but are comforted in knowing that the love and support you receive from those who loved Patrick most will provide you the fortitude and strength that you will require in the coming days, weeks and months ahead without your brave Patrick at your sides.  Please reach out to us if you need us ~ we are here for you.

A celebration of Patrick’s life will be held at Parker Evangelical Presbyterian Church, 9030 Miller Road in Parker, Colorado with arrangements being handled by the Horan & McConaty Funeral Home.  Please go to for more information.  

Patrick wanted his memorial service to be a celebration.  He requested that people wear bright colors, camo, or western wear to honor this wish.
