Zachary was one of my kids favorite librarians. He was always so kind when they had questions. God will take care of him.
Zack was such a warm giving person. I was injured in a shooting and Zack did all he could to bring food and things for my family while I was hospitalized. We will all miss his unique sense of humor and genuine want to help everyone he came in contact with. We will miss you . So glad I was able to call you friend.
Zach was an amazing young man. He was smart and just a wholesome person. He always had a smile on his face every day. It was an honor to have known and worked with him. I will miss hearing him say ” Wanna hear the bad joke of the day”. Rest in peace my friend, until we meet again.
I new Zach for a short time at AC as well. He and I would coordinate over student records needing to be shipped. I always made it a point to see how he was doing and we would always be kind and compassionate to one another, no matter what type of situation would arise. He was a good man and a kind soul, our hearts and our prayers are with you all.
During my brief time at Amarillo College one of the few people I loved to chat with was Zach. My heart goes out to his lovely parents and family. No words can express my sorrow for your loss.
We are all missing Zach at AC and your family is in our every thought. He was a dedicated worker, smart, reliable, and had a quiet humor that took us by surprise many times. We miss him every day.
I was so taken aback when I saw Zachary’s name in the obituaries. I would see him occasionally when he worked at the SW Library. Lifting you all in prayer!
Mr. and Mrs. Gosselin there are no words in the grief of a son or daughter. I would like you to know that Zach was a very humorous co-worker and hard worker. He was efficient with everything he did. I liked kidding him about being so shy and soft spoken. I will truly miss his smile here at Amarillo College.
Prayers for your families’ hearts. May his memories bring you comfort.
I worked with Zach at AC , while not as closely as other’s in the office I still have a fond memory of him. He had a big heart towards animals. I found a new momma dog in the middle of the street going to work. He took her to the vet to find out if she was chipped or not. He walked, fed and watered her until someone else in the office took her home. Funny guy with a big heart! You will be missed Zach!
My heart is full of sadness as I remember Zack. We both worked
at Amarillo College in same department. Every time I saw him he would smile big and have a joke to tell making my day just a little better. He was always happy to help out. My prayers for the family at this time of loss are for God’s peace, comfort and love to hold the family.
With caring heart,
