“Zachary loved life. He enjoyed life. He lived life. And we want to share that with everybody – who he was – that’s why we ride and walk in his memory.,” Zachary’s mom, Mary Ann, said.
Mary Ann and Edward Little, Zachary’s parents, along with his brothers Ryan and Chase, wanted to honor Zachary’s memory by establishing the “Zachary Little Memorial Fund” through the Pinebelt Foundation.
