Prizes were awarded for the longest drive. Door prizes were also awarded.  Participants also enjoyed appetizers and dinner.  They each received a T-shirt, water bottle, Fentanyl fact sheet, treatment and recovery fact sheet, and a wrist band with the SAMHSA helpline phone number.

Zach's Story

Zach graduated from North Harford High School, and then obtained his AA degree and automotive technician certification from Catonsville Community College. After working for Ford for several years, he moved to Florida and worked as an aviation technician. He later moved into appliance technician positions. He was a highly skilled and talented technician who was a customer favorite, loved learning, and looked forward to a bright future with G.E, his last employer. He earned multiple certifications in appliance and automotive repair. 

 

Zach loved his family dearly. He was extremely proud of his brothers and always strived to make them proud of him as well. He will be remembered as a deep thinker who had a compassionate heart and a wonderful sense of humor. He strived to count his blessings each day and prayed often for strength and goodness. He surrounded himself with positive affirmations and family mementos. 

 

Zach’s hobbies included playing Xbox, especially Halo, going to the beach and pool, watching movies, reading, skateboarding, snowboarding, playing drums, and going to Cars and Coffee or Costco with his Dad. He loved European cars and spent time building Lego replicas of them. He loved tinkering with cars and was always willing to offer his expertise on needed repairs. He loved sitting on his porch swing pondering life, and looking at his community pond and walking bridge lights. He was an avid dog lover, and spent time volunteering at an animal shelter. He loved going to the local zoo and wildlife center. Almost every night he texted us to give our dog (whom he called Bandito) a hug for him. 

Tragically, Zach died of an accidental fentanyl poisoning in December of 2022.
