Born on April 21, 1992, in Marshalltown, he was the son of Valerie Gorsuch and Mike Taylor. He attended Marshall High School in Portland, Oregon, and attended Marshalltown High School.
Zack will be remembered for his love of everyone; always giving of himself and making people laugh. A 'goofball' by nature, he loved to fish, camp, snowboard, tube the rivers and anything outdoors. His real joy came from time with his son, Ian- especially the tractor rides.
Left to cherish his life and memory are his son, Ian; Mom and step-dad, Valerie and Cale Adams of Portland, Oregon. Dad: Mike Taylor of Marshalltown. Sister, Blake and brother Ryken. Girlfriend, Alli Levings, step-mom Nicole Taylor of State Center; grandparents: Don and Carmen Gorsuch of Marshalltown; grandma, Terry Lippincott (Tom Bluhm) of Waverly: great-grandmothers: Donna Bown and Lil Taylor; and grandpa Bruce (Melissa) Taylor of Toledo; as well as many Aunts, Uncles cousins and friends.
In death, he rejoined his great grandma, Edna Gorsuch; great grandparents, Shorty and Mary Holmes; his uncle Jeff Adams; his great-grandpa Taylor and Bown; and his leopard Gecko, Leo.
