Zachary Fillmore Loftin

Our precious child, Zachary Fillmore Loftin, peacefully left this world on July 6, 2019 and walked into the arms of his Lord and his cherished sister, Adrienne.  Zach, 37, of Kernersville, NC, was born on October 13, 1981 in Winston-Salem, NC to Warren and Cindy Loftin.  It was easy for Zach to make friends because of his love for others, his delightful sense of humor and his ability to make others laugh. Well respected by his employer, his coworkers saw him as a dedicated team member who would go the extra mile to help the team whenever the need arose.  Zach loved children and had a special affection for his two nieces.  An avid Wake Forest sports fan, he always supported the team.  He had many hobbies, including reading, learning historical facts, camping, grilling on the barbeque, cars and car racing.  He especially enjoyed watching NASCAR.   He also loved to vacation at Kure Beach where he and the family made many fond memories.  God created Zach minus his right hand while blessing him with a strong will and spirit of determination, which more than compensated for what others might have seen as a deficiency.  He found ways to accomplish whatever goals he desired in all aspects of his life.  He was an inspiration to others just by showing them what he could do, not what he could not do.   Zach was preceded in death by his sister, Adrienne Loftin Overby; his paternal grandparents, Floyd F. and Susie Loftin; and his maternal grandparents, Bobby and Mildred Carroll.  He is survived by his parents, Warren and Cindy Loftin; brother, Nate Loftin; fiancé, Robin Meier; brother-in-law, Cal Overby; two nieces, Abby and Laney Overby; special aunt, Phyllis Loftin; special cousin, Nick Crews; his beloved dog, Sally and numerous other aunts, uncles and cousins.  A funeral service will be held 2pm Sunday, July 14, 2019 at Center Grove Baptist Church, 8750 Lasater Road, Clemmons, NC 27012 with Pastor Joseph Tucker officiating.  The family will receive friends immediately following the service. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Diabetes Association.

    Zach was a special young boy that shared his love of life wherever he ventured. I had the privilege of teaching him in the fifth grade. The year was memorable in many ways, and Zach was one of our strong team players spreading joy and love to all his classmates as well as to me. Zach, Rest In Peace . You have the exhilarating joy of being home with our Savior, Jesus Christ! Pauline Shepherd

    I had the pleasure to know Zach while in his younger 20’s. He was fun, good-humored and was an old soul that made you feel like you knew him all his life just after you met him. While the times we spent together were limited, they were certainly memorable and cherished. What an amazing guy…he will certainly be missed.

      Warren and Cindy, your son was a friend to my son, Jon Felton. I knew him since they were young teens. He was often by the house and we just adored him. He was kind, respectful, full of life and love. We loved him. We mourn and grieve with you in your your loss. I’m so sorry. Sending our love and prayers for you during this dufficult time.

      Zach was a great friend to me and many others. He earned the nickname Wonder when we played little league baseball together because he could do more with one hand than most could do with two. That remained true throughout his life. His character and selflessness were unmatched. He was the kind of guy that would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it and expected nothing in return. I learned a lot about how to treat others just by watching his interactions. The world would be a better place if everyone would take a page from his book. He will be missed greatly and always loved. Rest in Peace Zach.

      I’ve known Zach since elementary school at South West. I remember playing basketball with and against him in Clemmons Cougars basketball games at the YMCA. We had some great memories hanging out together in high school as well. I was honored to have known Zach. An inspiration to those with or without disabilities and a truly great person to have known and considered a friend. My thoughts and prayers are with all of his family and loved ones.
