Zachary Reed Streeter, 31, passed away March 12, 2016, following a long battle with cancer, surrounded by family at home in Salt Lake City, Utah.

He was born July 18, 1984, in Longview, and graduated from Toutle Lake High School and Lower Columbia College in 2002. He went on to complete a degree in instrumentation/industrial automation technology at Perry Technical Institute in 2005.

Zach began his career with Linde LLC in southern California in 2005, first as an instrumentation technician. With dedication, hard work, and following multiple transfers around the United States he was promoted to a position as manager of two hydrogen plants in Lima, Ohio.

While growing up, Zach was active in 4-H and Future Farmers of America, participating in the Cowlitz County Youth Market. Since childhood, Zach enjoyed all things outdoors. He was an avid hunter, fisherman, mountain biker, rock climber, hiker, and camper. Zach loved to go off-road in his Jeep and speed through the woods on his dirt bike. He also enjoyed travelling, and met his wife Jessica in 2008 during a trip to San Francisco. They enjoyed exploring the world, hiking, trying new foods, and sharing a wine or two.

Zach is survived by his wife of five years, Jessica Campaign Streeter of Salt Lake City; his parents, Jerri and Keith Streeter; two sisters, Renee Carney (Eric) of Toutle and Brittney Truluck (Jeremy) of Everett; his grandparents, Richard and Colleen Sverdrup of Longview, and Robert and Carolyn Streeter of Castle Rock; as well as aunts, uncles, and cousins.

His family is deeply grateful to Dr. Sameh Mikhail at the James Cancer Hospital at Ohio State University and Drs. Sunil Sharma and Anna Beck of Huntsman Cancer Hospital at The University of Utah for the wonderful care Zach received from them and their staff throughout his illness.

The monies donated will be used to host a supportive care event for those living with gastric or esophageal cancer in Zach's name.
