I have known Zach for many years his spirit and light brought smiles to all he met. he will be missed, I have fond memories of days when he was young in the youth soccer league, and thru high school and the man you grew to be. I enjoyed our conversations over the last year seeing Zach in the regions building getting to talk to him and discuss the past and present. To Michael Knight, Eric Knight, Cade Knight , and the rest of Zach's friends and family my thoughts and prayers are with you. The world lost a goodman and a bright smile, but heaven gained a new angel. Zach may the good lord hold and keep you.

Mike, so sorry to hear of Zach's passing. I can't imagine how you feel. Words are of little comfort.
Just know that friends are thinking of you.

I have a lot of memories with Zach growing up. I was 10 years old when he was born. Barbara was proud of her three boys. As my Daddy would say "We all could write a book". Maybe one of us will one day. Love you with all of my heart Zach.

When Bobby and I were married in 1971, Barbara was pregnant with Zach. I didn't think she could have another baby as cute as Eric, but she did. Zach with those beautiful dark eyes and sweet nature. One of my favorite pictures was of Zach and Eric, as toddlers, sitting in a cardboard box on our parents' front porch, laughing and having the time of their lives! In a cardboard box! Many more treasured times followed.

When our mother died in 2017, several of us, (his aunts and uncle), spent the day with him, going through old pictures, reminiscing, laughing and enjoying the time together.

We all loved him and were so proud of his accomplishments and the way he lived his life with dignity and courage. He will be missed, but I know Bobby, Barbara, Mama, Daddy, Becky and so many others who have gone before him, are so happy to have him home.

My last visit with Zach when I was visiting from DC he was proudly showing all the home improvements he
and Eric had done to his home. He was handsome, smart, independent and opinionated. I loved talking about politics, sports and family. I hate so much that he went so young. We loved you Zach. Uncle Wayne, Aunt Terry And Cousin Bianca.

God bless Zach! May he rest in peace with the souls of the faithful departed. I know my sister Barbara is happy to be reunited with her son. May God also bless his brothers Eric and Cade at this most difficult time.
