Zach moved to Vernon, BC in the late sixties and then made his permanent home in Kamloops. Before moving to BC, Zach held a job with the City of Melville and when he moved to BC, he worked odd construction jobs until he became a conductor for CP Rail, working there until his retirement.
Zach will be remembered by all who knew him as a kind hearted, caring and friendly man. He will be dearly missed by his wife and stepchildren. Due to COVID, there will be no formal service. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the heart and stroke fund in his memory.
