Zack's Team - The Fight For Recovery

Zack's Team Foundation Recovery Scholarship Fund

Zachary passed away on July 19, 2013, just a month shy of his 22nd birthday, after fighting a courageous battle with drug use disorder. Zachary was our son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend. Although he suffered from this debilitating and misunderstood chronic brain disease, he filled our hearts with joy and love. Zachary enjoyed hanging out with his family and friends. He was a great athlete with a strong passion for the sport of hockey. It was “on the ice” that Zack truly shined. We will forever miss his mischievous smile, his laughter and his goofy jokes.
