Zach was in my sixth grade class at Kirkwood Elementary. I always remember him, Cody, and Brendan, and all the fun they had together. Zach grew up a lot that year, and I always enjoyed keeping in touch with him as he got older. I still have the cutting board he made for me when he was at Northwest. I will always remember him fondly.

Guy,Kitty, and family,

My heart is broken for your loss. Mason has so many fond memories of camping with your family. He has football on the 4th and will not be able to make it, but requested I express his deepest regards. You raised a fine young man and the world is a little less bright due to the loss of him. Please reach out any time if needed.

I'll always remember all the times Zach would play cards with my boys, every time we had a family function and he was there he would play something with them. We had many conversations about cars, games and tons of random stuff. He never had a bad thing to say about anyone and was always happy.

Zachary was one of the only people at my job that I actually connected with and someone who understood me, and vice versa. Working with him was always such a joy and I could ask him to do anything for me and he would always do it with gratitude and kindness. I will never forget his heart and motives. A great young man.
