    Zachery Shane Michael Baker was a man that lived his life to the fullest. To know Zach, was to love Zach. Zach had a beautiful soul and a smile that could light up any room. He was loyal and kind to no end but had a stubbornness that made him all the better to be around. Zach was a loving husband and father to his beautiful wife Stephanie and their kids. He loved them more than anything else in this world. He was a momma’s boy who was devoted to his mother and the man that he called dad, Phillip Sanders. His momma was his rock, and she was his anchor. He had a bond with his little brother Robert, that only grew from childhood to adulthood. Zach lived his life in his own way on his own terms that made him nothing less than a joy to be around. A stranger to Zach was only somebody he had not been able to smile at, laugh with, or help yet. Zachery was the kind of person who would go to the extremes to help somebody else, even if it meant risking his own safety. This was evident when he once reached into a burning truck to help a friend, resulting in him sustaining injuries himself. If you needed a good friend who would help you through anything, be laid back, and pick you up when you were down, Zach was the friend you needed. No matter the time, place, or circumstance, you could call Zach and rest assured that he would be there. Zach was a lover of life and enjoyed doing anything that he could get into, especially a mud hole on the back of a four-wheeler.  To see Zach with greasy hands or mud from head to toe was less of a surprise than seeing Zach clean. He enjoyed mechanic work, mud riding, helping out others, hanging out with family and friends, and being a brother, but most of all, he enjoyed being a father. Zach was a great man, husband, father, son, brother, and friend. He loved everyone he met and loved them hard. Zachery Shane Michael Baker will be forever missed and loved by so many.
