Zak D.

Zak was born December 7, 2000, and passed away on November 9, 2011, the victim of a tumor on his brain stem. “He was both smart and kind,” his mother says. His father remembers his confidence: “When he was only four, I had just started building a shed, and he walked over one day and said, ‘…with this project here…,’ just like he was the host of This Old House.”
