I am heartbroken to hear of Zach's passing. He always treated me With kindness and respect and I felt that he had a deep sense of compassion toward others. There are too few with Zach's characteristics in this world and we are all poorer for this loss. My deepest sympathies go to his immediate and extended family.

I knew Zach for a short time while he worked at CATS Academy. I will remember him as a sweet and kind person who was always helpful. He had a warm smile that made your day a little brighter. I wish all the best to his family and little Stella.

Our hearts are very heavy for all of you upon hearing of Zach's unexpected passing. We remember the many times seeing Zach & Jake at Peggy & Mike's house, swimming & running around their back yard - full of young boy vigor. The passing of Zach at such a young age is not something that you or any parent, sibling, or partner should have to experience, and we extend our sincerest condolences to all of you. You will be held in our thoughts & prayers.

I am a co-worker of Zachary's father, Al. Having just recently lost my own brother, I know how difficult it is. I extend my condolences to the family and friends of someone who passed much too early. May his memory be for a blessing!
