April 21, 1993 – September 13, 2019
Zac was born in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico on April 21, 1993. He was adopted by Karen Welch and Walter Coulter as a newborn. From the beginning, Zac’s smile would light up every room. As a young man, his zest for life was immeasurable and his love for others ran deep and true. Zac’s family was not one of blood, but one of choice. His parents chose to adopt him as their only child. Numerous friends chose him to be their “brother” or their “best” friend and confidant. Zac’s ability to give unconditional love, loyalty, trust, and friendship to so many during his short lifetime is astonishing and admirable. His wide-dimpled smile, jokes (though sometimes not really very funny) and his happy-go-lucky enthusiasm for life will be missed by all who were fortunate enough to know him as the “charmer,” “goofball,” and “entertainer” he was born to be. Zac was loved faithfully and unconditionally by numerous friends who will forever hold him dear in their hearts and memories.
Zac is survived by his loving mother Karen Welch; his father Walter Coulter; his beloved girlfriend Hannah; his maternal grandmother Nancy Baker; his maternal step-grandmother Sally Welch; his adorable puppy, Chex; and numerous family members and heartbroken friends.
A celebration of Zac’s life will be held at the Oakdale Rodeo Grounds on Saturday, October 5, 2019 from 11 AM to 3 PM.
