Zachary Benjamin Schwartz, 28 years old, died suddenly September 1, in a car accident in Wyoming while traveling home from a two month cross country trip. Zach grew up in the Annapolis, Rolling Knolls community and attended Annapolis High School. At Annapolis High, he excelled in varsity soccer, lacrosse, track and wrestling and was awarded the National Scholar / Athlete Award from the U.S. Army Reserve. He was a National Merit Scholarship finalist and went on to attend the University of Maryland, where he was president of the fraternity; Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI). Through his fraternity activities, he was involved in organizing many fund raising and charity events. Zach was an avid reader on a wide variety of topics and was always ready to engage in an intellectual conversation, a heated debate, or an explanation of a strange world from a fantasy-science fiction book. Most of all, Zach was a loving son and a loyal, caring and dependable friend to many. Zach had a winning smile, a good heart, and a quick wit that will be missed by all. A funeral mass will be held on Thursday, September 10, at St. John Neumann Church, 620 Bestgate Road, Annapolis MD 21401 at 10:30 a.m., followed by a light lunch. In the evening, there will be a celebration of Zach's life at his home on 1962 Sigfrid Ct., Annapolis, MD, beginning at 6:00 p.m. Zach is survived by his parents, Larry Schwartz and Margie (Machulski) Schwartz, both of Annapolis, his grandfather, Gerald Grant of New Castle, Delaware, five aunts, four uncles, many cousins, and a host of loyal friends. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Zach's name to the National Park Service.
