Wow, I am so shocked and sad to hear about Zach’s passing. We had some great laughs during the time i was around CC and later on when he was working as an electrician, His laughter was infectious and his love of life was very evident!! You will be missed very much!!

Sorry for your loss, I remember when we played Little League in Gustine, Zach played with Trident Truck lines. He was one of the hardest throwers I’ve seen. Playing along side him in the all star game, I was playing second base and he was at center. He caught a ball and threw a heater to me, I was scared to catch that baseball. Going to his dad’s movie store downtown and cracking jokes with his dad and to see how Zach was doing. Ran into him at CSU Stanislaus, he told me still needed some classes.
