Zach was the light of every room. He had an inappropriate joke for every occasion. He loved to work in his garage on the Blazer or the four other projects he had going on at the same time.
More than anything, he was a beloved father and loved to spend time with his kids – making memories at Disney to playing in the backyard; every moment was special.
He will be sorely missed.
There will be a short visitation on Saturday July 27, 2019 from 10:00-11:00 am with a celebration of life to follow at the Fisher Center gym.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent in care of Citizens State Bank in Hiawatha.
