Zack attended Crossbridge Community Church in Ottawa. He was a laborer at Pilkington, a member of Crossfit Exemplify, enjoyed hiking, collecting and reading comics, listening to music, dancing, feeding the squirrels and reading. Zack always took pride in his appearance. You could find him regularly with a fresh fade, a pair of Jordans and t shirt or hoodie supporting a Chicago sports team. What Zack loved more than looking good was to make others feel good. He loved to make people laugh and smile.
What Zack loved first and foremost was his family.
