Zachary James Dubuque

Zachary James Dubuque, 25, of Amarillo, TX passed on Sunday morning, March 29, 2020.

A private memorial service will be held.  Due to the recent health crisis, we have been asked to keep the service to family members only.  However, the service will be streamed live for friends and family.  The family will provide a link (TBD) to view the service that will be given at a later time.

Zachary was born August 13, 1994, on Eglin AFB to David and Aurora Dubuque.  Zachary was a very kind and compassionate soul.  All who knew him would describe him with one word – LOVING!

Zach was creative and artistic.  He loved hanging out with his friends and playing video games.  He was a movie fanatic and worked as assistant manager at the local movie theater.

Zach was always ready and willing to lend a helping hand to those he saw in need.  His long-term goals were to return to Florida and pursue schooling and a career in engineering.  He will be dearly missed by all whom had the privilege of knowing him.

Zachary is survived by his sister, Darci; his parents, David and Aurora; his grandmother, Margarita Ruiz; and grandfather, James Dubuque, in addition to numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.

In lieu of flowers, please make contributions to the Dell Children’s Hospital, Austin, TX, in Zachary Dubuque’s name.

  42. Dear David, Aurora, and Darci:
    Feels like yesterday when we were all together at the wedding last fall. I had my first real opportunity to get to know Zack after all of these years living abroad or due to otherwise misaligned schedules. My daughters Claire and Nicole particularly enjoyed their time with Zack and Darci (and boyfriend). We found Zack to be authentic, empathetic, and just a super friendly and warm person to be around – obviously inherited from the Aurora side of your family no doubt (just kidding Dave 🙂

    Dave, years ago our Grandpa emblazed our names on driftwood that had washed ashore on the beach outside Camp. Our parents also found driftwood and did the same for our kids. I never gave much thought to how those driftwood captured our family tree other than how you and Brian got better deal than me so far as driftwood quality goes.

    The night we learned of Zack’s passing we did something we don’t normally do in my household, we prayed. We held each others hands and said a prayer for Zack and for you, Aurora, and Darci. We reflected on the first thing that came to our minds when we thought of Zack. We all saw the same thing; it was Zack’s driftwood sitting on the ledge at Camp. We saw his name boldly etched, burned into the wood by hand, just like ours, just like Darci’s, just like yours. We are all family up there on that ledge overlooking Nana’s ancient coffee table. I do not know whether Grandpa knew that driftwood symbolized the eternal relationship between wood and water, between forest and sea, and between life and death. But while there are no words that can ever fill the void, please know that we are all together with Zack on that ledge overlooking the Camp, overlooking the forest, overlooking the Lake, and overlooking each other – as it should be. And when we see Zack each summer, he reminds us of who we are and he brings us a smile and warmth to our hearts. God Bless.

  43. My heart goes out to you and all of your family. I am Sawyer’s grandmother and blessed to have Zach in my life. He brightened our lives with his ready smile and always a hardy hug. Wonderful memories of a loving and kind friend. God bless you and His grace be with you in your time of sorrow

  44. David, Aurora and Darci, I am so sorry to hear about Zach!! I loved him in class! Always in a good moody!! I will be praying for you all.
    Love, LuAnn Flowers
