Zachary Winters funeral expenses

$26,025 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 422 people in 11 months

Late night on February 22, 2017 Zachary Winters was tragically taken from his family and friends. Zach was a 28 years old Tuscarora High School graduate that many in Frederick seemed to have the pleasure of knowing. Zach was a memorable person and the smile behind everyone’s good time. He was a father of four beautiful children, a brother to five siblings, a cherished son and an amazing friend. Zach was one of a kind, always there to support and protect the ones he loved.

If you have been impacted by Zach’s generous and loving heart we are asking for assistance for funeral expenses and any other expenses that may occur.

Thank you and funeral arrangments are fourthcoming. Prayers are always welcome. 

All money that is raised above the funeral expenses will go directly to Zachs children.
Thank you for all of the support.

I am Zach's Mom Stephanie L. Asbury,
I can NOT express adequately the over whelming gratitude and how our family has been so touched by the outpiuring on gofund me for Zach Winters and his children! I have taken time this morning to go through it and I am so deeply touched by the names to anonymous, from $5 - $1,000. I can never express how thankful we are to you! But it is very important that YOU know all money left from the funeral is GOING TO HIS 4 CHILDREN. We are setting up a trust for all 4 children equally, for their college and future. It is very important to us for you to know where your love and support is going.
Thank you from the very bottom of our hearts,
Zach' s very proud and heartbroken family
Flying their father and their Uncle Zach
Fly high our boy, OUR HERO!

Hello and thank you all for your kind heart. I have been asked to post an update. I have been married to Zach's mom for a year and a half. When we started this go fund me account for Zach, the family decided that I would be in charge of the account. We have made all decisions as a family and with 2 goals. One being, we celebrate his life in a way that he would have wanted. The second, always keep in mind the more money we don't have to spend, it will mean more money that the kids receive. The support and love that has been shown is overwhelming. I will be withdrawing the money in my name, but we do this as a family. I will be updating the post as soon as all funeral expenses have been paid. The remaining funds will be split evenly between his four children .
Again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Your love for Zach is so evident in the posts here and the outpouring of giving.

Randy, I feel sad that you had to explain your intentions. It took a lot of courage and humbleness for you to ask people for help. "Ask and ye shall receive," right? You are a HUGE blessing to the family. Don't let the enemy in. Your intentions were pure of heart. Praise everyone who contributed to this campaign for provision in a time of need. Praise you, Randy, for asking.

That was supposed to say "link" instead of the "blank" but I don't know how to edit this comment.

That is true Elaine. However, like other payment systems, it does provide for an easy blank and wait to share to a high volume of people who may easily click and donate to someone they don't know, as I did. My guess is that using the go fund me platform was instrumental in raising this much money and that the approximate $1600 in this case is worth the net gain that may have not been reached through just word-of-mouth and friends of friends. Of course that is just my guess. I am glad the family has been able to raise so much and I hope all the additional money will help the children and their future with a trust fund or college or whatever is needed to help his family.
