In Memory of Zachary David Bowers

The last thing a family who loses a child should have to worry about is the cost associated with saying goodbye.  I started this page to help alleviate the financial burden on the Bowers family as they learn to live their lives without their beloved Zach. 

SFC Jeff Bowers, Mrs. Carla Bowers, and their daughter Shelby Bowers lost 24-year-old Zachary David Bowers suddenly and tragically in a car accident on April 7, 2018 in Washington State. 

Zach was born on November 16th, 1993 in Geneva, NY to Jeff & Carla Bowers.  As a military child, Zach had the opportunity to see the world and build memories and friendships throughout his life. Zach attended Sumner High School from 2007 – 2010 and graduated Smithfield High School in Smithfield, VA in 2011.  Zach returned to Washington State in 2013 and worked at Commencement Bay Corrugated in Orting, WA as an assistant machine operator, and attended college at Pierce College, Puyallup, WA. He enjoyed traveling, collecting celebrity autographs, going to the gym, and most of all enjoying his life with his family. Zach will be remembered for his kindness, generosity, his selfless sacrifices to the ones he loved, and his ambition to provide his loved ones with the best things in life.

Though he left this Earth entirely too soon, Zach made an unforgettable and lasting impression on the countless people who loved him. His parents and sister wish to honor his memory with a viewing in both Washington and New York prior to saying their final goodbyes so that all whose lives were touched by Zach have a chance to see him one last time. 

As you you can imagine, the cost of seeing Zach off in the manner he and his loved ones deserve is a large an unexpected one, especially considering the travel involved.  Any donation you make will go directly to his family to help alleviate the financial burden so they can focus instead on remembering the beautiful memories they shared with Zach.
