I am very sorry to hear of Mr. Zoch's passing. My heartfelt condolences to his family. He was such a help to me during some of my high school years. He was a wonderful, compassionate man who helped many. Recently I was remembering him and tried to locate him, but never did. My intention was to let him know how much he had impacted my life. I only wish I could have told him, but I like to think that he knows now. God Bless. Renee Gnadt Ladwig Class of 1973

To the family of Mr. Zoch. I give you my condolences. He was a great man, and I remember his smiling face at Lincoln during my years there. Thank you for all you did for us Mr. Zoch. Rest in Peace.

To the family of Mr Zoch, God and the Angels brought home to them a legendary man who's mark was left on countless numbers of students. As a fellow classmate of mine deemed him, "a Gentle Ben" kind of guy with a hard constitution on respect and dicipline handed down in a compassionate and caring way. Little did we know that he was preparing us for life beyond the walls of Lincoln High on how to conduct ourselves in our adult lives. Thoughts and prayers of peace to the family of Mr. Z and may God and his Angels wrap him in His peace and glory.

Claude will always be remembered by me as the Principal who cared and loved his job. He was stern but yet caring, he put the fear of god into you, but yet made you feel as though the world you needed you and in time you will know why. Great Man! I wish there were many more like Claude today...the world would be better place.

Mr. Zoch was there for me when I needed him when he was assistant principal at Lincoln High School. I needed to drop a class because of a teacher abuse. He was the one that helped me. That was back in 1960 and I have never forgotten him for the kindness he showed me when I had to go in a talk to him. I was so scared going to his office (as we were in those days), but he was so pleasant and helpful that when I left I felt good. As I said, I have never forgotten him since then and spoke highly of him through the years. He was a wonderful man. Deepest sympathies, Jeanmarie (Cloe) Stahl

I want to sned my simpathy to Nancey and her family! I rember spending many afternoons over at Nancey's house and Mr. Zoch tolerating us running around and probably getting into some trouble. He was a great asset to Lincoln High School, all the wonderful things he did to keep us students on a good path! Thank you Mr. Zoch for all your kindness!

My sympathies on the passing of Mr Zoch. He was always a figure that commanded respect at Lincoln High. I have many memories of him, a recounting of which would take a while, but would not be complete without (fondly) recalling that the only thing bigger than this man's hands (which were around my scrawny teenage neck on more than one occasion) was his heart. The man cared...and for that he will be both missed and remembered. RIP Mr. Zoch. God Bless. Tom Calabrese Class of 1983

I was blessed to have Claude Zoch Sr. as my grandfather. He was such a wonderful man I can not express all the things he meant to me. Even though he has been sick for a while before his death, it still is a shock to me that he isn't here anymore. I will miss him so much and pray to see him again in heaven!! Love you Gramps, Jodi and family

Claude, The Hammer, Zoch Sr. was my Uncle...a very good Uncle...but more then being my Uncle, he was my friend. We did many things together, Hockey games, Softball games, Track meets, Basketball games, Goose hunting, Duck hunting, Deer hunting, Fishing, all kinds of fishing, Family reuinions, and them long telephone calls just to bullshit about how life was going....I loved this man, sorry i didn't spend more time with him in the end, but it was hard to see his life dimming. He will be missed by me and my family. Rest in peace My Friend !
