I knew Zack as a proud family man and for those of us who were lucky enough to know him, understood that his dedication, his help serving and being a part of the town of Dayton meant so much. I am so saddened and I hope Zack's family and friends can feel the outpouring of love and prayers for peace and comfort. My wife and I want Zack's family to know that we are here for anything they need.”
Town Manager Angela A. Lawrence said she relied heavily on Zack’s understanding of Infrastructure needs in the Town. “He was a busy man who balanced work, family, and community service, giving his all wherever needed.

Our hearts go out to his family and friends.”
