Zachary Allen Campbell, 18, passed away of injuries sustained by a fall from Skyscraper Ridge in Hatcher Pass in Alaska on Aug. 3, 2018.
He was born on Feb. 1, 2000 in Centralia, Wash., and has lived in the Valley since 2003. He graduated from Mat-Su Career and Tech High School in May 2018. Zac ran cross-country, completed the Mat-Su Fire Department's Explorers program and was an avid outdoorsman, especially relishing hiking and snowboarding.
His mother shares that Zachary had a calm spirit that drew friends to him and a knack for quieting crying babies. His father affirms that Zachary was "Every father's dream: tall, strong, compassionate; a good man." Friends agree, also describing Zac's goofy smile and readiness to spend time with people both on outdoor adventures and in long conversations. Teachers remarked on his leadership skills bubbling beneath lively socializing. He had a quirky sense of humor, once eating an entire banana, peel and all, on a casual challenge, much to the merriment of the family's dinner guests.
Zachary did not tiptoe through life, but "skidded through broadside in a cloud of smoke," loudly proclaiming the wonderment of the ride. He lived a life worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing and increasing in his knowledge.
He is survived by his parents, Casey and Tonya; his sisters, Alyssa Petrina, Mackenzie, Sara, and Regan; his brother Dylan; and a host of heartbroken family and friends. He is preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Lavonne Boyd and James Campbell.
Funeral Mass will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 14, 2018, at 12 p.m. at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, 1201 East Bogard Road in Wasilla, Alaska. Public viewing will be held at 11 a.m., one hour prior to the service.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Zachary Allen Campbell Mat-Su Fireman's Training Fund at MVCU.
