On May 15, 2021, Zachary Steven Briggs, lover of life, passed from this earth, but never from our hearts.  Zachary was 31. 

Zachary was preceded in death by grandparents, Steven C. Briggs, Kathleen Erickson, Raul Ceballos.  Survived by his mother, Michelle Ceballos; stepfather, Joel Ceballos, Sr.; brothers, Joel Ceballos, Jr., Jonathan (Jonny) Ceballos; grandfather, Roger Erickson; grandmother, Antonia Ceballos.

Zach was a beloved son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, and friend.  He was a deeply spiritual soul who lived his life fully. Zach had a strong work ethic that included serving his country through military service in the United States Army.  With an irreverent sense of humor, he found joy in spending time with his family and friends, experiencing music, skateboarding, seeking the peacefulness of the outdoors, and caring for all the creatures who call Earth home.

    Zachary, I am reading all the wonderful messages that your friends and brothers in battle have had to say about you. You were an incredible friend to so many. You brought them comfort and strength when they thought they walked alone. Walk beside me Zach, and light my way until we meet again. I love you.

    I don’t know what to say. You will be so dearly missed and I wish I could have known to come to your service. You were a brave and peaceful soul and I will always remember the times we spent together. I pray that you’re somewhere lying close to us. God will take great care of you my friend
