In his obituary, his family says Zerby was “the typical redhead … friendly, outgoing, and he never stopped talking.”

His parents released a video about Zerby and said the following:

Brycen would not want his departure of our world to represent so much pain. So in memory of his character please serve each other with unselfish hearts, be generous beyond reason, play as hard as you can, hold the door open at every opportunity, and seek Jesus with the faith of a child.

Funeral services will be at the Generations Church at 3 p.m. on Friday. Zerby will be buried in Canon City, where he used to live, on Saturday.

A GoFundMe drive has raised more than $75,000 for the family.
