Zach attended a boarding school for troubled teens in Montana at the age of 15. He was very proud of the education he received there. He thought it was the best thing his parents did for him. It was a time he felt confident and successful. Zach loved spending time with his children and was so proud of them. He loved coaching Tyler’s sports when he was young. Zach enjoyed camping, fishing, canoeing, golfing, and watching sports with a fire going. He was a dancer, a boxer, a golfer, and a diehard Dave Matthews fan. He loved road trips, home improvement projects and gardening. Zach cherished his lifelong friendship with Stew.
