On April 9, 2020, Zachery "Bupah" Burnette, a stellar son, loving brother, true friend, and an all-around awesome human-being left the world poorer with his passing at age 18. His time here was heartbreakingly short, but it was dynamic, and all who knew him are so grateful for the time we had with him.
Zach was the kind of person who made everyone feel loved. He was kind, funny, generous, creative and goofy, and he was afraid of nothing. If you had the chance to know him then you know how lucky you are. We miss him beyond measure, but we know he has returned home and is shining down from the heavens, pointing and calling us all nerds. We look so forward to seeing him again.
Those waiting to light the way for him on the other side are his maternal grandparents and his paternal grandfather.
Those still here feeling the sorrow of his passing are his parents, Chris & Darcee Burnette, Brandy Burnette; siblings, Chris and Chloe Burnette; grandparents, Kathy & Joe Crumley, Donna Rabbett, Robert and Nancy Nevin; aunts, Nicole, Liz, Tonya, Adonica, Jenny & Melissa; uncles, Ricky, John; his many cousins, and even more incredible friends.
Goodbye for now Bupah. We love and miss you almost more than our hearts can bear.
