Zachary Adam Nathaniel Root

ROOT, Zachary Adam Nathaniel

Passed away at the age of 31, at Toronto General Hospital, on March 15, 2021 after contracting Covid-19.  Zach will be lovingly remembered and profoundly missed by his parents, Michele and Chris, siblings, Brandon and Penelope, Step-mother Joan, Step-brother Kevin, Step-father Lloyd as well as a niece, nephew, Aunts, Uncles and cousins.  Kind hearted, thoughtful and generous, he often put the needs of others before his own.  Zach had a quiet humour and we enjoy the memories of his goofy laugh and punny one liners. He loved gaming and to solve complex puzzles, especially those math related. With no formal training, he played classical guitar in arpeggio style, and could often be found sitting by the water playing quietly. The family would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to the many health care workers who came to know Zachary Adam during his fight with Covid-19, in Peterborough and Toronto, as well as the care he received from VON and Peterborough Hospital throughout his adult life. There will be an Interment held on Wednesday, July 28th, 2021 at 1:00 pm at the Little Lake Cemetery.  Covid 19 restrictions are in place and masks are mandatory and strictly adhered to. In memory of Zachary, donations can be made to OTCC (Ontario Turtle Conservatory Centre) or to support Four County Crisis Line/Safe beds   To plant a tree in memory of Zachary Adam Root please visit the floral store on his obituary.
