Obituary

Zachary Glenn “Zakk” Nelson, died of accidental circumstances on Nov. 14, 2020. He was 24 years old and a lifelong resident of Zachary. Visitation will be at Charlet Funeral Home, Inc. in Zachary on Saturday, Nov. 21, 2020 from 1pm until service time at 3pm conducted by Rev. Ricky Willis. Zakk is survived by his parents, Robert, Jr. and Raquel Nelson. His siblings, Randy Nelson and wife, Claire, Lora Nelson-Wilkinson and husband, Ryan, and Stephen Nelson. Nieces, Harper Wilkinson and Isabel Nelson. Grandparents, Marilyn Finley, Bob and Sandal Nelson and Glenn and Fran Ray. Uncles and aunts, Sean Ray and wife, Jess, John Smith, Mike Smith and wife, Lacretia, Dawn Smith and husband, Ryan, Mardi Nelson and Jesse Nelson and wife, Maggie and a host of cousins and extended family. He is preceded in death by his grandmother, Ellen Smith and an uncle, Terry Smith. Zakk is a 2014 graduate of Zachary High School where he was an active member of the marching band and wrestling team. Zakk was a fun loving free-spirit who never took himself too seriously. He loved animals, never met a stranger and loved to make people laugh. Prior to his passing, Zakk had aspirations of pursuing military service and was in the process of finalizing an enlistment in the United States Army. Zakk’s final act was to give the gift of life through organ, eye, and tissue donation. The family wishes to extend our sincere thanks to our First Responders of Zachary, Lane Regional ICU, Zachary United Methodist Church, American Red Cross and Louisiana Organ Procurement Agency and the many friends and family who have supported us throughout this difficult time. Memorial donations may be made to Second Chance Dog Rescue , www.SecondChanceDogRescueLA.org ,St. Jude Children’s Hospital or American Red Cross.
