Zach is survived by his parents, Jennifer A. Carroll and Curtis L. Carroll, brothers Chris Hoffman, Ashton Carroll and sister Olivia Carroll. Also, Brianna Allman and Sara Glance.
Zach graduated from East Gaston High, Mt. Holly, NC. In 2009. He always kept a special place in his heart for his wrestling team family.
Zach loved his family dearly, was great with kids and had a huge heart. He cherished his brothers and sister and loved his fuzzy socks and always White shoes.
Our beloved son was fighting a battle far more powerful than he was able to conquer. Zach struggled with addiction for over 10 years. In the last four months he had entered a rehab then moved on to sober living. He was truly becoming a new person right before our eyes. He was beginning to like himself again, he wanted to beat this and we could all see it. He truly was different this time. On October 7, 2018 we will never know what really happened. All we do know is that Addiction and Death doesn’t discriminate. Zachary will always remain in our hearts and live in our memories until we see him again.
