To those who knew Zach he was a kind, loving and caring person, never quick to judge anyone. He was known for his sense of humor. He loved making other people laugh because he knew laughter was the best medicine. Zach was a devoted friend to all that knew him. Zach excelled at basketball and soccer going to tournaments and enjoying the comradery with his teammates. Zach also loved fishing and hanging out with his best friend Steve.
Zach also suffered terribly with mental illness, unfortunately he turned to drugs to fight his demons. Mental illness and drug addiction go hand in hand. Zach was living proof of that.
