Zackary Scott Towers, 19 of Star City, passed away February 19, 2014 at Arkansas Children’s Hospital in Little Rock. He was born June 25, 1994 in Pine Bluff.
Towers was a warm and loving son, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend. He was a loving protective brother and loved his family endlessly. He had a simple, trusting faith in God that never waivered. Zack was an independent thinker who wasn’t easily swayed by others. Zack loved football, weightlifting, vacations, all sports and especially going to the beach. He was fun, easy going, laid back and took things in stride. He was a responsible and very bright student who often helped inspire others with their education. Zack was always surrounded by friends and he had a way of improving those around him.
Zack fought a long, courageous battle, and many lives have been changed due to his ministry. For 15 months, Zack brought people closer to God, souls were saved and people were brought together in a way that has never been seen before. His race has been run and God took His child home. Zack is healed now and is at peace. Zack’s legacy is one of faith, love and the spirit of never giving up. He will be missed, but will never be forgotten.
