Zach will be greatly missed by all of us. He was always willing to lend a helping hand. He loved his music. We had some great times together at Lancaster Roots & Blues festivals. Zach informed me of a job opening that led me to being employed 10 years now at my current position. I’ll especially miss his sense of humor. R.I.P., my friend.

I am so sorry to hear about Zach's passing. My brother and I lived down the street in Atglen. I remember all the goofy shit him and my brother did. I know Zach was always a good person... Always a shame to see things like this happen. 🙁
