In Memorium

A generous donation was made in loving memory of Zachary Stohr who tragically lost his life to senseless gun violence on September 1, 2020.


Zach leaves behind his parents, brother and sister, young nephews, as well as extended family, and many close friends.  Zach will be remembered by his loved ones as the person who could “fix anything”, as he worked
numerous jobs throughout his lifetime and showed up whenever anyone needed him.


As a person who always brought a smile to everyone around him, Zach Lives On… in every laugh and through his beloved cat GG and his chickens.

If you would like to make a donation in the name of your loved one please contact us.
