Zachary Richard Kammer

Charlotte, NC Zachary Richard Kammer passed away Wednesday, August 5th, 2020 in Eatonton, GA at the age of 26. Born September 17, 1993, he was the third child and first-born son of Keith Kammer and Linda Yates Kammer of Lilburn, GA.

Though born in Tempe, Arizona, Zachary was a Georgia boy through and through. Growing up, Zachary loved exploring in creeks, playing soccer, and being at the lake with his family. He would tell you that he lettered in two sports in high school, football and soccer, but soccer was his true passion. His Senior Superlative was 'Best Eyes'. Zachary graduated from Parkview High School and then went on to Georgia College and State University, where he was very involved with Habitat for Humanity and their local ReStore.

He then transferred to the University of Georgia, where he majored in Accounting. He was so proud to be a Bulldog, and he tailgated at every home football game he could attend.

It was at one of these tailgates that he met his wife, Jessica. They met in September of 2017 and were married on October 20th of the following year. After they both finished their Master's degrees at the University of Georgia, they moved to Charlotte, North Carolina for Zach's job at Ernst & Young. He worked as a Risk Advisor there for two years, and his colleagues all spoke glowingly of him. Everyone who met Zach made a friend for life. His energy was infectious, and he lived life passionately. On any given day, Zach could be found shopping at Costco or watching a movie from his vast movie collection. He was a member of Christ Our King and Savior Catholic Church in Greensboro and a member of the Knights of Columbus.

Throughout his life, he loved his family fiercely and his memory is with them always.

In addition to his wife Jessica Brumley-Kammer of Eatonton, GA, Zachary is survived by his parents, Keith and Linda Kammer of Lilburn, GA; sisters and brother-in-laws, Sarah and Josh Veal of Augusta, GA, Morgan and Jay Rains of Athens, GA; brothers, Chase Kammer and Jacob Kammer both of Lilburn, GA; grandparents, Tom and Norma Kammer of Downers Grove, IL; aunt, Nancy Nelson of Norwalk, CA; aunt and uncle, Jeff and Laura Kammer of Naperville, IL; cousin, Matt Kammer of Plainfield, IL; Great-uncle and aunt, Dennis and Kathleen Ewasuik of Eatonton, GA; nephews and nieces, Nolan, Ella and Chance Veal, Margaret and Walter Rains; mother and father-in-law, John and Juliah Brumley of Lawrenceburg, KY, brother and sister-in-law, Jacob and Tori Brumley of Bowling Green, KY, Grandparent-in-laws, Price and Linda Watkins of Lawrenceburg, KY and Chuck and LaVerne Brumley of Lawrenceburg, KY; along with a number of other treasured relatives and many friends.
