Zachery Ford Obituary

In Loving Memory of Zachery Robert Ford


Zachery R. Ford, a vibrant and beloved soul, left this world on October 21, 2023, at the age of 28. He was born on September 17, 1995, in Akron, Ohio, the cherished son of John R. Ford and Michele Banner.

Zachery was a kind man with a loving heart who could bring a smile to any situation. His journey through life was filled with personal growth and a carefree ease. Zachery spent the last sixteen months living his best life and touching the lives of many.  He had a natural ability to inspire those around him and could make anyone laugh.  

While Zachery's passing leaves a void in our hearts, he is now at peace. In accordance with Zachery's wishes, no formal services are scheduled at this time. In lieu of flowers or gifts, the family kindly requests that memorial contributions be made in Zachery's name to the Humane Society of Summit County, Ohio, as a meaningful way to honor his memory and continue the legacy of his kindness and compassion to every animal he ever met.

If Zach could say one final thing to us all, we believe it would be this:

“Be kind.  Live your life to the fullest. Use the time you have to spread positivity and experience new things out of your comfort zone and to continue to grow as a human being.”

We can not wait to play a few games of euchre with you in heaven Zach. We miss you more than we could ever express.

Love Always, 
All Of Us
