Zach Peterson, Bret Harte student

   With a heavy heart the family of Zachary Thomas Peterson announce his unexpected passing on August 27, 2017. 

   Born April 13, 2001, Zachary was 16 years old
and a student at Bret Harte High School, where he had just started his junior year.

   A child of Bear Valley, he lived there for even years until his family moved down the hill to the
Murphys/Angels Camp area.

   Preceded in death by his father, Gregory Peterson, Zach's love of music and cars kept him connected to the spirit and memory of his father.

   He possessed his father's kindness and generosity that allowed him to connect with anyone he spent time with.

   Zach is survived by his mother Jolee and brother Jess, 14, of Angels Camp, maternal grandparents Tom and Doris (Alturas) paternal grandparents Bob and Mardie (Danville), Aunt Jaime and cousin Trevor (Alturas)

   Along with too many extended family and friends to mention, his passing leaves another hole in a community that will forever miss and grieve for both him and his father.

   A Celebration is planned for Saturday, September 16, 2017 at Grace Hills Covenant Church, 1270 Suzanne Drive in Angels Camp, with the service to begin at noon.

   Community members wishing to support the family during this time, donations are being accepted at Rabobank, where the Zachary Peterson Memorial Fund has been established.

   Angels Memorial Chapel is handling arrangements.
