Obituary for Zachary Christopher Long

Zachary Christopher Long, encourager, inviter, lifter of spirits and lover of people, passed away Monday, May 13, 2019.  Zachary was 21 years old.  

He was a bright light in this world.  He had the ability to raise your spirits in unexpected ways and help you have a better day.  It was hard to be in a negative space when you were in his presence.  He was intentional with his words and positivity.  He sought out people who needed an encouraging word and engaged them with compassion and kindness.  He told you what he liked and admired about you.  He always looked for a reason to offer a compliment.  He noticed little things.  He stopped to pet every dog and cat he ever passed.  He loved books - the more pages, the smaller the print, the more books in the series, the better.  He loved rain.  Books and rain together were heaven to him.  Books, rain, a cup of tea, a cookie, a blanket, and his cat Stella made life even sweeter.  

Zachary was brilliant, but not motivated by success, popularity or the material things in life.  He liked to learn, just to learn.  He was curious and inquisitive, and stored a million trivial facts in his head.  He loved music, running, walking in the woods, riding his bike, rafting, camping, writing, a good meal, a good prayer, a nice cup of coffee, a decadent dessert, a drizzly day, thinking, and deep conversations.  

Mostly he loved his parents, his sister, his grandparents, his cousins, his friends, his teachers, his coaches, his pastors and his God.
