It is with deep sorrow, we announce that Zachary Ryan Rosier, age 21,our beloved son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, and friend passed away in a car accident Friday April 14, 2023 in Odessa, Texas. He was born May 24, 2001 in Ogden to Ryan and Jill Rosier of South
Weber, Utah. Zach attended South Weber Elementary, Highmark Charter School, Northridge High School and received an associate degree from Weber State University. For the past three summers, he has had increasing success as part of a dynamic sales team with Lumio
Solar in West Texas.
One of his core characteristics was determination, a trait he gained during his battle to survive childhood leukemia. Zachs family and friends would describe him as intelligent, driven, loyal, fun loving, and mischievous. Many of his teachers referred to him as the class clown. He
was aware and quick with a sincere compliment in just the right moment. Zach was charismatic and loved to tease, yet he was very compassionate and connected easily and deeply with many people.
He enjoyed snowboarding, volleyball, boating, traveling with family, playing video games with cousins, and losing at pickleball to his mother. Zach spared no expense when it came to his clothing, food, and car, as evidenced by the multiple pairs of the same shoe, swimsuits, and
shirts, indulging in milk chocolate, Caesar salads, and steaks, and never hesitating to purchase the latest accessories for his Tesla, “The White Pearl.”
Zach loved being with his siblings and never wanted to miss out on any adventures. He shares a love with his older siblings and brother-in-law for anything (except roller coasters, he hated those) that included an adrenaline rush, from cliff jumping, to rock climbing, to conquering
double black diamonds and the thrill of target shooting with his guns.
He also loved being the big brother and had no problem buying the younger ones, aka “the littles,” affection or spoiling them with just about anything they desired! His love for life and ability to make us laugh will be sorely missed by his parents, siblings, Jaquelyn (Dillon Graham)
Katelyn, Brookelyn, Madelyn, Hunter, as well as his loving grandparents (Lorin and Cleone Smith) (Iris Rosier) We know he was happy to be reunited with his grandfather (Dennis Rosier) uncle (Mark Smith) and his aunt (Esther Smith)
Zachary’s favorite hymn is “If You Could Hie to Kolob” and another song he never failed to play was “Glorious” by David Archuleta. Both of these represent some of his deeper beliefs and faith in the “why” of life, that there is a purpose and that we each have a part and a place.
We feel he is continuing his melody and it is glorious to us.
