“A true God-fearing man, who was a role model, father, husband, and public servant, Zack and his family are dear friends of ours that we met and became close with through our church-home Mission Hills. All proceeds of this campaign are going directly to his wife Gracie and their two daughters. If there is any question whatsoever of the legitimacy of this campaign you are welcome to call me at (720) 445-1310 or email me at tyler.m.scott@outlook.com.”

Funeral services have been set for 11 a.m. on Friday at Cherry Hills Church in Highlands Ranch.
