Our hearts go out to Zack’s entire family.
He was has a polite, caring, well-meaning and wonderful person that we had the pleasure to spend time with in his younger years.
Our memories of Zack are special and this loss is indescribable, not only the loss of a wonderful friend to many and special son and family member, but not seeing the many extraordinary things this young man was going to accomplish.
Words can’t really covey this tragedy or really comfort the family other than the thought of how everyone recognized how special this young man was.
All of our thoughts are with the family during this incredibly difficult time.

Zach was so fun loving and always had a smile on his face. Thanks for pretending to be my “fake boyfriend” at the Luke Bryan concert! Will never forget our fun times. Rest east ❤
