Zachary Taylor Bohan, 25, of Manchester, formerly of Bedford, passed away on May 24, 2021.
He was born in Manchester on February 6, 1996, the son of Susan (Woodward) Chandonnet and Bradley P. Bohan. Zachary was a 2014 graduate of Bedford High School. He also attended NHTI.â¯ He had most recently been employed as a delivery driver for New England Distributors.
It is with the deepest of sorrow we announce the death of our beloved son Zachary.â¯ Zach loved all sports, he was a big fan of the Red Sox and the Celtics. Throughout his high school career he played Colt, Palomino and American Legion baseball. However, his favorite team he played for was his and his brothers.â¯ They would play wiffle ball for hours in the backyard and run and jump in the pool each summer no matter their age. Zach was a born athlete and excelled at anything he tried.â¯ He loved his younger brother and sister to the moon and back.â¯ He'd play hoops with his younger brother and shared a sense of humor and laughter that filled our home with love.â¯ Both brothers enjoyed teasing their little sister and admired her sassiness.â¯ He recently got into tattoos and was very proud of each one and its significance. He displayed "Big Brother" across his back to represent his love for his siblings.â¯ When Zach wasn't working he would be found spending time with his Grandfather "Woody" and his girlfriend Cal.â¯ Zachary had a very close bond with his grandfather and it remains to this day.
He was his mother's first born who stole her heart on his first breath.â¯ Those who truly knew Zachary, even just a little, have lost a shining star in their life.â¯ Zach had an essence of innocence that will never be forgotten. His kind heart, sensitive soul and his love of life should be what we remember the most about him.â¯ His infectious laugh and beautiful smile will forever be embedded in our hearts.â¯ We know Zachary is with his Nana and Aunt Trisha and is loved here on earth as he is in heaven.
