A visitation for family and friends was at 1:00 p.m. at the church. A loving son, brother, uncle, and friend, he will truly be missed by all who knew him.

David was born on May 6, 1959 to Herbert and Billie Preddy Zacharias in Waco, Texas. He lived in or around McGregor, Texas his entire life and graduated from McGregor High School in 1981. David was baptized at First Baptist Church on December 25, 1977 by Dr. Gary Cook and lived his life serving the Lord and preached the word proudly. A great prayer warrior, David had a prayer list a mile long. He had a passion for helping others and enjoyed volunteering six days a week at Westview Manor where he also resided the last few years of his life. David was a huge blessing to all, but especially to his parents that he cared for their entire lives.

David was preceded in death by his father, Herbert, his mother, Billie, and his two brothers, Clyde and John. He is survived by his niece Karen Zacharias-Enax and her husband Blake and their sons Hudson, Gavin, and Brendon Enax, along with many loved cousins and friends.

To David's Family, and many, many friends. i am very sorry to just see about David's passing!! Many long years ago, the late Neil McBride used to pass out candy to all of the kids at First Baptist Church, in McGregor. and Neil was getting tired of this, so one Sunday David ask Neil if he could take over being the Candy man!! and Neil said sure!! So, David was really thrilled that he got the fun job of becoming the Official Candy Man of the First Baptist Church of McGregor!! And Billie Herbert and David's two Brother's were very proud of David!! So, David has now joined his Family in Heaven!! GOD bless his soul!! He was a very special person!! GOD bless all of his Friends!! Ronny Bredemeyer(formerly of McGregor 1969-1989)

He was a extordinary man. Always had a smile and was full of life. Was always willing to help anyone who needed it.
He will be greatly missed here on Earth. But he's going to a better place and be with his family who has gone before him.
Rest In Peace my friend.
Prayers and condolences to his family.
