Dr. Robert Rae Zinser, 67, of Kickapoo, Ill., passed away Thursday, March 12, 2015, at 10:26 a.m., peacefully at his home. Robert was born on March 21, 1947, in Peoria, Ill., to Rae C. and Thelma Rose (Heinz) Zinser. He married Christine E. (Barth) Zinser on Jan. 4, 1969, at St. Mary's Church in Kickapoo.


Robert graduated from Spalding Institute in 1965 and Palmer College of Chiropractic (Davenport, Iowa) in 1971. He was very proud to serve the Peoria area as a chiropractor for 41 years.


He was a member of the Illinois Prairie State Chiropractic Association and St. Mary's Church in Kickapoo. He was a well respected member of his community, volunteering his time and talents in numerous projects and events throughout his beloved town of Kickapoo. His impact on so many unknown people to his family is an inspiration. We are grateful for all the many lives he has touched and how much he was loved.


Bob loved his farm, his cows and tinkering in his workshop. He was a licensed pilot and loved his days of flying, speaking of it often over the last few years. His Colorado hunting trips over the years with his son and very close friends were his ultimate source of relaxation, also contributing to his love of photography and the mountains.
