Zachary Steven Hunter, 35, of Excelsior Springs, Mo., passed away February 29, 2020 at Liberty Hospital from a broken heart.
Zachary was born November 21, 1984 at North Kansas City Hospital. Thank you, Abba Father, for sending Jesus your only son to die to redeem my son Zachery Steven Hunter. You in your wisdom saw his days of distress and turmoil, his pain, loss and deep darkness that only you could heal. Zach loved so deeply, and his heart was broken by pain only known by a man alienated from his son. Many mistakes, falls and challenges on every side, life of distress, turmoil and pain seeking relief from the world which has none, stumbling back to your throne.
Precious Jesus, merciful savior. Please let his life glorify your mercy and bring in your hurting, weary children to know Jesus paid it all. Make peace with Jesus, Zach did. To each of his friends and his family, those he loved Zach would now want you to know. In this world you will have tribulation but be of good cheer! Jesus the lamb of God has overcame the world! Just come to him make peace with him and believe and as he would say then and so now. I love you dad…mom…I love you bro…love you….We love you Zach soon we will be with you again, rest now at the throne of our king.
