PRICE - Zachary Ray Westbrook, our little man who lived without fear, left a hole in our hearts on Monday April 5, 2010. He left this world doing what he loved, four- wheeling with his family.
On Dec. 7, 1998 a gift from God was delivered to the proud parents, Charlie Ray and Shauntel Pierce Westbrook in Price.
A little guy with twinkling big blue eyes and a mischievous smile, he tackled riding a two wheel bike at the age of three and has never stopped running. Zac was a fifth grade student at Creekview Elementary where he had many friends. He enjoyed playing soccer and basketball with his friends, watching the Utah Jazz and Chicago Bulls and eating popcorn with his mom and dad.
Zac was a right-handed boy who conquered sports with his left hand. He loved camping, hunting and making the great outdoors his playground. He loved nothing more than treasure hunting for sheds with his mom and dad in the spring. Zac's greatest joy was spending time with his Grandma and Papa Pierce and waiting for his special cousin, Kobe, to visit.
Zac is survived by his mom and dad, Charlie and Shauntel Westbrook; his grandpa and grandma Asay and Arlette Pierce; his "Nona" Joni Westbrook; aunts and uncles, Rodney (Shawna) Pierce, Stasay (John) McCowen, Jennifer O'Neil, JoLynn (Damon) Parks; cousins, Kobe McCowen, Ty (Amanda), Chase and Brienna Alderson, Mikaila and Jerra O'Neil, McKenzie Parks; numerous friends, family, and his four-legged furry companion, Lexi.
He was preceded in death by his grandpa, Charlie Westbrook; great-grandparents, Darrell and Roma Norton, Dominic and Janet Oliveto, Walter and Barbara Westbrook.
The family wishes to thank the Carbon County ambulance, Castleview Hospital, Primary Children's Trauma Unit, and a special thanks to Lex, Dr. Williams and Danette Moynier.
Funeral services are Friday, April 9, 2010, 11 a.m. at the Mitchell Funeral Home, 233 E Main Street. A viewing will be held at Mitchell's Thursday evening from 6-8 p.m. and Friday one hour prior to services. Interment, Cliffview Cemetery, Price.

Do you think the Utah Legislature should increase appropriations for public education in Utah beyond the current legislative trend in the past few years of funding only for growth in student population?
