My Story

Zack was a "family man" with a passion and zest for life, love, and fun. He loved deeply his parents, big brother and big sister. He loved to play -- constantly. He played with his friends for days on end. His favorite toy was a miniature Ford Mustang convertible, in his favorite color -- red. He loved sports, especially when he could kick, throw, catch or chase a football, basketball or soccer ball. Zack enjoyed video games too and often had to be pulled away with blisters forming on his fingers. He loved Lego video games -- Star Wars, Batman, and also wrestling games. Ray Mysterio was his favorite. He saw himself as a superhero and greatly admired Superman, Spiderman, Batman and Ben 10. He loved to make jokes and funny faces. He loved to eat -- meatballs, steak (or "snake" as he called it), and jerk chicken were his favorites. He enjoyed traveling to visit family in Chicago, New York and New Orleans. He battled with courage, strength, and humor -- inspiring all who knew him.
