Zach was a member of the First United Methodist Church of Mount Vernon, where he enjoyed taking part in the youth program while in Mount Vernon.  Zach worked with his parents as the operator of Old Stone Countertops in Sulphur Springs.  Growing up, Zach loved his life at the lake.  He enjoyed anything outdoors and on the water, especially wake boarding.  He loved life and enjoyed every minute he was given on this earth.  Those who knew Zach best will always remember his fun loving personality and the vibrant life he lived.  His sweet smile and loving spirit will live on in the lives of those he leaves behind.
