Obituary for Vince A. Zoellner

Vince Alan Zoellner, 55, formerly of Merrill, passed away unexpectedly in Phoenix, AZ, Monday November 14, 2022. Vince was born in the town of Merrill, Lincoln County, on October 30, 1967, to Orville and Rose (Duginski) Zoellner.

Vince was a Merrill High School class of 1986 graduate. He ran track and held class office positions. He was a member of the Marching Jays and the Merrill City Band. Music always played a major role in Vince’s life. Starting in grade school, he played drums for Marcus Golde’s band Avalanche. In high school, he began playing with Silverado and continued for several years. After college, he was one of the founding members of the band Remedy. Vince interned for IBM in Wausau, WI. Then, after graduating from college, he worked for Arthur Anderson Accounting Company. Following that, he went on to work for Wausau Insurance.

Vince was an avid traveler. He easily made friends in any country he visited. Some favorite places were Japan, Italy, France, Spain, Australia and Brazil, but his heart was most drawn to Costa Rica where he hoped to have permanent residence one day. During his summer trips to Merrill, Vince enjoyed spending quality time with family. He and his stepfather, Roger, enjoyed “raking” in the bass at their secret fishing hole. Before her passing, he fished with his mother, Rose, as well. Vince especially loved spending time with his nephew and his many nieces. They knew their Uncle Vince was always up for shenanigans and games.


Survivors include his girlfriend Javiera Escobar, sisters, Carrie (Michael) Baumgart, Renee (Douglas) Smith, Colleen (Aaron) Skoviera, and brother, Roger Hoffman Jr., all of Merrill. He is additionally survived by his stepfather, Roger Hoffman Sr., twelve nieces and one nephew, three great nieces and one great nephew, two stepbrothers and four stepsisters. He was preceded in death by his dear father, Orville Zoellner, and his beloved mother, Rose Hoffman.

A memorial service for Vince will be held at 6:00 P.M., Friday, December 9, 2022, at the Taylor-Stine Funeral Home, Merrill. Rev. Greg Laska will officiate. The family will receive friends beginning at 4:00 P.M. Friday, December 9th at the funeral home.
