Zachary is survived by his loving mother and father, Shelley and Uco Blanke.

He is also survived by his sister, Natasha Blanke Eldridge, her husband Kyle Eldridge, his Aunt Francine and Uncle Tom and his cousin Nicole Regeness. He is also survived by many other cousins and close friends.

He is preceded in death by his loving grandparents Ruth and Joe Scopp, and Barbara and John Blanke and several loving friends, some gone way too soon.

Zachary Edward William Blanke was born on March 30,1983 in North Miami, Florida. He grew up in both North Miami Beach and Sunrise, Florida where he graduated from Western High and on Dec. 8, 2008 he graduated from the University of South Florida with a Bachelor of Science, majoring in Finance.

Zack worked in Florida as a lifeguard, swimming instructor for children, and insurance sales. He loved surfing, skate boarding, wake boarding, disk golf, music, playing guitar, dancing, reading, watching documentaries and movies. He loved making people laugh.

Zack moved to California where he lived and worked for three years in San Juan Capistrano and San Clemente pursuing his dream of surfing as much as possible. Surfing and music were his passions.

Zack was in very good spirits as he was planning a move to Cocoa Beach, Florida which he had been wanting to do for quite some time.

He was a beloved son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, and sincere friend to so many. His family and friends will always remember him as a loving and compassionate soul.

The family would like to thank Casey Coote and friends for their joint efforts to make Zack’s final send-off take place.

Rest in Peace Zack. You will always be in our hearts and memories.

Love, Mom and Dad

    Zack was a good- hard to find friend, one of a kind. He was Kind, selfless, reliable, generous and honest. He was understanding. He had every quality of a sincere friend. Zack was humorous in his fun Zacky ways. We Always had laughs when we would spend time together.  He had good intentions and wore his heart on his sleeve. He had no bad bone on his body. His passion for music was his main source of happiness and loved sharing that with his friends. He was loyal to the people he cared about and was always there to listen.  He cared. Cared too much. Zack had a huge heart... a deep heart that is rare, unique, and hard to find. Zack I love you my friend. Im so thankful- grateful for our last hangout with Yaeden and I at the skatepark... it was a lot of fun and you were happy. For our last texts together, the words exchanged and for our deep long phone conversation about life on your birthday. I know you're resting in peace and I will forever cherish our memories.❤️
