Is there any way possible this tombstone can be translated into English? It is either written in Yiddish or Hebrew. This is the only image I have available. The man's name is Wolf ZUCKERMAN, and all I know is that he died in July of 1906. Any help in translation will be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

4/14/2010 Difficult to read, the best I can figure out
Zeev Wolf son of Peretz Zukerman died 9 Tamuz 5687 = July 9, 1927 or 9 Tamuz 5667 = June 21, 1907 at the age of 32
4/21/2010 Here's my reading, aided by the first response:

Here lies
A cherished man
R' Zev Wolf the son of
Peretz Zuckerman
Deceased on Monday
The 9th of the month of Tammuz [July 2nd, see below]
In the year 5666 [1906] from creation
32 years, half [?] ...
May his soul be joined in eternal life.

[The year is 5666, not 5667, because the ninth of Tammuz 5666 is a Monday, and also falls during July 1906 - unlike 5667]
