  • Lydia Johnson Posted July 13, 2021 12:30 AM

    I’m gonna miss him. I didn’t speak to him much but I remember when I was little him always being around and being like a big brother to me. It was an on going joke in the family that he was my “future husband”. He was the best there was.

    • Lora Chumney Posted July 30, 2021 10:22 PM

      Thank you Lydia for those thoughtful memories.

    I’ll never forget that time I made you go to Oaklawn with me.
    Jace & Jaxx remember you shootin’ hoops with em in the back yard. We just talked about it today.
    They always thought you were so goofy.. especially the hoverboard.
    We laughed.
    I will miss the fun times with you & Allison. I will miss hearing you holler & then immediately lovin’ on Zena & Lady & taking them everywhere with you like they were your kids.
    I love your family. I promise to always be there for Keith, Lora, & Ian.
    You were a beautiful soul & a true friend.
    I will truly miss the laughter you brought to mine & my family’s life.
    I hope we meet again someday, my dear friend. Til then I’ll keep working on my dart game.
    Much Love,

  • Kim Gatlin Posted August 5, 2021 1:08 AM

    Zak, I still can’t believe you’re gone.
    I remember when we first met. I had just been in that wreck & had a hematoma on my face and was super deformed looking..
    I looked scary. It was funny. We laughed.
    Also, back then Your dart game was so bad, it took you up until last year for you to FINALLY beat me!
    I would get so mad!! Lol
    You thought it was funny. We laughed.
    I’ll never forget that day we were standing in my Granny’s kitchen & you were wearing a cross necklace & Jaxx looked at me & said, “Mom, is he Jesus?”
    Again, we laughed.
    That super sweaty day I had literally 24 hours to clean out my storage which of course was the biggest unit they had packed full of furniture to the ceiling. Tim, Somer, & I needed more muscles & you were the only one that came through. It almost killed us all, it was so hot, but we did it! I tried to make up for it with pizza and strawberry fanta. You said, “no, Kim we ain’t even, you owe me big!!.”
    But, you were still laughing.
