GLASGOW — Zachary Aaron ‘Zac’ Cloyd

AUBURN, Ind. –  Zachary Aaron “Zac” Cloyd, 21, left us on July 4, 2013, while doing one of the things he loved, riding in the wind.

He was born March 29, 1992, in Bryan, Ohio.

Zac worked as an inspector packer for Graphic Packaging in Kendallville where he was working diligently towards receiving a promotion.

Zac enjoyed numerous lifelong interest and accomplishments. A partial list can only be cited that include; first and foremost he enjoyed his friends and family at all times. As a young boy at the age of 12, he achieved his first-degree black belt in American Freestyle Karate. He was a successful rabbit herdsman in 4-H and was elected Rabbit Herdsman of the Year by his peers. He also won best of show and was top ranked while in 4-H. He enjoyed music early on and was a percussion member of marching bands for both Barren County High School in Glasgow, and the DeKalb Marching Band in Waterloo, Ind. He was a member of the state champion winter percussion group from DeKalb his sophomore year and continued as a member through his school. He was a graduate of DeKalb High School and attended IPFW. He is survived by his new best friend, Demon the Doberman. He loved music and jamming with the guys, cars of any kind and had a passion for motorcycles since he could walk. He liked firearms, archery and hunting deer and birds. He loved all animals of all kinds and was striving in the art of experimental cooking and mastering his new grill.

Surviving are his father and stepmother, Patrick A. and Sonya Cloyd, of Ashley; his mother and stepfather, Kelly J. (Varner) and Craig Christian, of Glasgow; two sisters, Emilee Christian and Lydia Christian, of Glasgow; a brother, Jacob Christian, of Glasgow; and a step-brother, Shae Daler, of Crooked Lake; paternal grandparents, Russell and Bonnie Cloyd, of Montpelier, Ohio; and maternal grandparents, Herbert and Gay Varner, of Sherwood, Ohio.

He was preceded in death by a stepbrother, Chaz Daler.

Zac left an indelible impact on all those he met that could not be erased. Young or old, wealthy or poor, he treated everyone equally and as if they were lifelong friends. He knew no strangers, only friends he had not met.

Services were 11 a.m. Monday at Feller and Clark Funeral Home, 1860 S. Center St., Auburn, with visitation Monday prior to the service at the funeral home. Dr. Robert Craig officiated. Burial was in Woodlawn Cemetery in Auburn.

Zac’s pallbearers were: Aaron Creps, Kalieb Crites, Shae Daler, Brady Galliers, Brad Hohler, Karl Scattergood, Grant Varner and Spencer Varner.

Local memorials may be directed to DeKalb County Humane Shelter.

A memorial service will also be conducted at 3 p.m. Friday at Glasgow Cumberland Presbyterian Church, 101 Cumberland St., Glasgow.

Memorials may be directed to a scholarship fund in Zac’s memory for the Barren County Band.
