It is with heavy hearts that we share the news that Zackary Shane Botts, born October 21, 1990, passed away on June 7th, 2021.

Zack was born in Roseburg, OR, to Randy and Sara Botts (Koyano). He attended Glide High School and received his GED from Umpqua Community College. He then went on to attend Lane Community College.

Zack enjoyed hiking, swimming in the river, hanging out with friends and family, and bringing a positive attitude to everything he participated in. He found peace in being in the outdoors and loved the North Umpqua River where he had many fond memories of spending time with his family. We will all miss his smile, mischievous laugh, sense of humor, and his large heart. Zack was always up for an adventure and will be remembered for all the joy he brought his friends and family.
