So sorry for your family's loss. Your pictures capture Zach's energy and spirit. That is how I remember him in elementary school. With prayers and condolences during this time.

Al, Cindy, Peg, Mike, and all Zach's Family and Friends:
The news of Zach's passing brought great sadness to all of us who knew him or his family, but that sadness could not possibly compare to what your family is going through. While none of your friends could ever understand the degree and pain of your loss, it is my hope that each of us can help carry a small amount for you and lighten the load, if even slightly. Please

Just talked to my niece Katy and she told me the sad news about my great nephew Zach. I never had the pleasure of meeting him but from what I hear, he was a great and special young man. So very sad to leave at such a young age. My condolences to his family and to hers.

I am so very sorry for your loss. As Zach's school nurse, and one of my daughters best friends I was able to get to know him very well. To say I was a big fan is an understatement. The Mark's boys will always hold a special place in my heart. Sending thoughts and prayers while you navigate your new normal without Zach. Life is not fair, he will be missed.

To Al, Cindy, jake and to all extended family and friends - I am so sorry for your loss. I will always remember Zach as happy, energetic kid chasing around his cousins, John and Luke Pucillo at their house in Braintree. He was always a super nice, respectful kid. I pray that you all can make it through these tough times and hope you can find peace and better days head, especially for Zach's young daughter. Remember all the great times you had with Zach and the smile he always brought to your face. God bless.

Zach excelled at everything he tried. Throughout his life I celebrated has passion for reading. He would drag his mom to the library several times a week and come home with a stack of books and get right to reading. He loved skateboarding and didn't bat an eyelash when the opportunity to attend an overnight camp in Waterville. I attended his last day and could not believe the tricks and fearlessness I saw. His academics came so naturally and we

He was a nice guy. Never a negative word, look... He would have been a great father and will be missed by all who knew him.
