Zachariah Timothy Anderson was born in St. Joseph, Missouri, at 1:43pm on Wednesday, August 10th, 2005, at Heartland Regional Medical Center. He weighed a healthy 8 pounds, 11 ½ ounces. He was 21 ¾ inches long. After leaving St. Joseph, he lived in Blue Springs, Missouri, for 12 years. He attended Daniel Young Elementary School, Moreland Ridge Middle School, Blue Springs South High School, and Valley View High School. He worked at Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers for a little while before taking a job at Dairy Queen as a cook.

He was a very bright young man who enjoyed music, gaming, and computer technology. He loved to read books and manga. He loved playing games with friends and family, or just hanging out and introducing them to music or art that he found beautiful. He could often be found playing a game of chess with his brother or working on creating music of his own, something he dreamed of pursuing in life.

Everyone who knew Zach knew he was a kind, caring spirit with an incredible sense of humor and view on life. He always knew how to make his family and friends laugh with the silly things he did. He had such a big heart and loving soul. He left a lasting impression on everyone he interacted with. He went out of his way to build strong and meaningful connections with family and friends in ways that had far reaching impacts. Zach was such a wonderful older brother to Isaac, Soren, and Oliver, and cared for them deeply. Above all, he always made sure to include his brothers, family, and friends in whatever new life adventures he was on in a way that showed how much he truly cared for those around him.

His time was cut short, but his impact will forever be felt by everyone he touched. He was his mother’s rock. He would always look out for her while giving his love and compassion. He did the same for so many other people in his life. He was the best son, brother, friend – everything. He was deeply loved by all and will be truly missed.

He was preceded in death by George Chapple (Grandfather), Ulonda Farmer (Great Grandmother), and Phyllis Fountain (Great Grandmother).
