Abner, Zackery Michael

Zackery Michael Abner passed away January 12, 2016 at the University of Texas Medical Center in Tyler, Texas.  He was 16 years old and a resident of Truman Smith Child Care Center in Gladewater, Texas. He was our family’s “little man”. Even though he had many medical issues and handicaps, his personality was that of a gentle spirit. His great-grandmother, Anna, was instrumental in seeing that he had the best care possible, along with the help close family members who provided their love and support.

Zack was preceded in death by his twin sister Tamra; grandfather, Michael Abner; and great-aunt, Michelle Williams.

Visitation will be on Tuesday January 19, 2016 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm in the Brooks Family Chapel of the North Dallas Funeral Home, 2710 Valley View Lane, Dallas, Texas 75234 with a memorial service to follow at noon.  Interment will be at Calvary Hill Cemetery, Lombardy Lane, Dallas, Texas.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the University of Texas Medical Center, Children’s Medical Center in Dallas, and particularly to the staff at Truman Smith Child Care Center for Zack’s ongoing care and attending to his special needs.

Please leave the family condolences and share memories on this website.

I am so sorry to hear about the tragic loss in your family, someone so young. Sometime when there is a death people may say 'it was God's plan' or 'God took them' as if God is responsible for things like this but James 1:13 explains that God has nothing to do with such a painful event. Instead, he promises to bring to life again those in his memory who have died. John 5:28,29; Acts 24:15. Please accept my deepest condolences.
