Zac Golden - Cole Creek Angus Ranch Fund

At age 37, Zac Golden was living the Montana dream.  He married his high school sweetheart and after 21 years, they were still the best of friends. Holly, "rebel and riot" and Zac "balance and strength"... together the perfect couple.
Zac was a girl dad; the father to four of the most BEAUTIFUL little girls. He let them put make up on him and nail polish, watch princess movies, but he also taught them about fishing, hiking, riding and life on the ranch. Kenz, Mac, Cha Cha, and Charley, his Golden Girls, who need and miss their Daddy so much. Zac is the kind of father we should all want to be.
Not having any boys of his own, Zac was an amazing Uncle to Ty and Jake Cook, Brixx Winkler, and Zane and Grady Hansen, as it happened Zac's sisters, Stacie (Golden) Hansen and Natalie (Golden) Cook, were the ones to have the boys. Zac welcomed their husbands and families into the Golden family as well, in true Zac fashion. He shared his life with Holly, her sister Brandi, nephew Brixx and Holly's parents, Matt and Jackie. Zac was always the grounded person in the family, sincere and genuine in everything and with everyone. 
He was a coach, important member of the community, and had just been sworn into the school board.  Zac was one of the most kind, caring and thoughtful people. He worked hard for the life he always wanted. Living on the Ranch where he was raised, with the love of his life and sweet family, owning his own concrete business and had recently built the house of his dreams, all while doing what he loved with his Dad, Greg. The closeness he shared with his Mom, Claudia Golden, helped build the foundation which made all of this possible.
On Tuesday, July 14th 2020, as he had done a million times, Zac took his bike out to search for a bull that had gone astray on Cole Creek Angus Ranch, the Golden Family Ranch. Tragically, Zac never made it home.

Those who knew Zac, even just a little, have lost a shining light in their lives. This is a tragedy beyond words...
We are asking for donations to help ease the financial burden for the Golden family. Zac was the sole provider for Holly and the girls. As we adjust to life without a husband, father, son, brother, uncle, friend; please consider helping in anyway you can.

In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to Zac's Cole Creek Angus Ranch Memorial Fund.

We appreciate everyone's love, support, thoughts and prayers at this time. 

Cards can also be mailed directly to Holly and Family at PO Box 270, Joliet, MT 59041  or Cole Creek Angus Ranch Greg or Claudia Golden at PO Box 94, Joliet, MT 59041.
