Zachary grew up having a love for music, cars, and science. He graduated from Carlsbad High School in 2011, where he enjoyed playing the trumpet with the CHS band. Zachary was charismatic, loving, and social in all aspects of his life, and made friends with everyone he met. After high school, he married Sidney Light, and they started a family together having two boys. They owned and managed the Fiesta Drive Inn Theater for several years, where Zachary found a love for film and cinematography. Zachary loved spending time with his boys, taking them to Disney, drag car races, and car shows. He also enjoyed taking his flying lessons, listening to EDM, and learning about astronomy. Zachary had survived a few rough patches in his life, that he battled to overcome. His family goals gave him motivation to live a clean and sober life.
