Claude Vane Ziebarth , 62 of Lancaster, California, died April 20, 2016 in a vehicle accident along with his wife, Vickie Newman. He was born to the late Opal (Smith) and Charles Ziebarth.
Claude danced to the beat of a different drum. He had an infectious laugh and a booming voice, always doing it “My way”. He loved music, playing, teaching and writing. While performing on the street, Willie Nelson “stopped to listen, leaving him a “tip “. He experienced his 15 minutes of fame on You Tube, performing his original music. Claude loved the Beatles quoting John Lennon often. Claude was truly a rolling stone….. Loving life in California.
Claude served in the Marine Corps, during the Vietnam War. A staunch Donald Trump supporter…. He would say I’m on the Trump Train! Trump supporters think of “Z” when you strike your vote on Election Day.
