Zechariah "Zac" Favela

August 3, 1984 — April 2, 2023

If a clown farts, does it smell funny?

Zechariah David Favela was born August 3, 1984, in Denver, Colorado to Suzette Favela and Garvin Trimm. “Zac” was raised with sisters Stephanie Trimm and Thairesia Trimm. When things became difficult at home, Zac went to live in foster care and found a connection to his foster mother, Belinda Davis, that he maintained as an adult. He lived his entire life in the metro Denver area.

Zac got his associate’s degree in Applied Sciences and was close to achieving his bachelor’s degree in Environmental Engineering through Metro State University. For the past five years, Zac worked for KLJ Engineering.

Zac was a regular attender at Calvary Church in Aurora. He met Sarah McKay when she went with a friend to visit the church in 2008. An immediate connection was made. Zac and Sarah were married July 25, 2012.

The first ten years of their marriage saw them able to purchase a home and do some travelling. It was to be the first time Zac would leave Colorado and fly in an airplane. Zac and Sarah had many travel adventures.

Surprise! A pregnancy arrived in January, 2021. And surprise again, it was to be twins-a girl and a boy. The babies came early and Eleanor Grace and Samuel David had to spend five weeks in NICU.

Zac was a very hands-on Dad. He jumped in right away changing diapers, making bottles, and cleaning up vomit. But Zac’s real joy with the children was playing on the floor with Eleanor and Samuel. He had a deep love for his children and desired that he would always be present and active in their lives. He was born to be a daddy. When Sarah announced that baby number three was on it’s way, Zac smiled and was very happy to know it was to be another girl.

Of course, his family came first. But Zac’s other joys included being an avid Broncos and Avalanche fan, cooking, barbecuing, and gardening.

Zac is survived by his wife, Sarah Favela and his children, Eleanor Grace and Samuel David and his unborn daughter, all from Aurora, CO.

What kind of doctor was Dr. Pepper? A Fizz-ician.
