Albert Cesar Zenner
Birth: Jun. 20, 1916, Belgium
Death: May 2, 2007
Los Angeles County
California, USA

Albert Zenner of Santa Monica, aged 90, was struck by a car while crossing 4th Street at Idaho Avenue at approximately 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 2; he was taken to UCLA Medical Center in Westwood by Santa Monica Fire Department paramedics, where he later died of his injuries at 8:54 that evening.

Today, there is a yellow ribbon tied around the palm tree on the corner of 4th and Idaho, and a message commemorating "the Wonderful Albert Zenner" as "Devoted Husband to Nora Zenner for over 68 years, Beloved Father, Grandfather, Great Grandfather, Great Great Grandfather, Amazing Artist Painter, Impeccable Musician, Brilliant Inventor,..."

Perhaps ironically, the last time Mr. Zenner's name appeared in the Mirror it was because he had been issued a traffic citation for driving his three-wheeled, battery-powered Trident down the middle of the pedestrians-only Third Street Promenade in July 2004: "Zenner, a self-described artist and inventor, told the officer that the vehicle was his wheelchair.... The officer issued a citation to Zenner, after which he and another officer escorted Zenner to Santa Monica Boulevard, where they advised him to ‘make a right turn and keep going.'


Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free
I'm following the path God laid for me
I took His hand when I heard Him call
I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day, to laugh,
to love, to work or play.
Tasks undone must stay that way
I've found that peace at the close of the day.

If parting has left a void, then fill it
with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah, yes, these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish for you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I savored much
Good friends, good times,
a loved one's touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all to brief,
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and share with me,
God wants me now, He set me free.
