Zachary Roger Cloutier
December 15, 1994-December 16, 2017
Zachary Roger Cloutier, 23, beloved son of Adele (Littlefield) Cloutier of Buffalo and William “BC” and Gina Cloutier of Naples, Florida and Canandaigua, New York passed away suddenly on Saturday, December 16, 2017.
Born in Rochester, New York, Zack also resided in Buffalo, NY and Jacksonville, FL, returning in 2013 to what he considered his hometown of Buffalo. There, he became a licensed Realtor and purchased his first home. In his most recent position as a Customer Care Associate with Essendant, Zack was highly valued and truly loved by those who had the opportunity to work alongside him. Zack took great pride in his role as a customer service specialist and had hoped to grow within his company.
In addition to his love for his work, Zack’s hobbies included hiking, video games, watching the Buffalo Bills, and playing golf, primarily with his father and with his uncles and cousins. As a boy, he loved snowmobiling in northern Maine, collecting Pokémon and Yu-Gi-Oh cards, and designing his own science experiments.
One of the highlights of Zack’s life was when he accomplished his first sky dive this past summer. After experiencing his first dive, he vowed to pursue the sport with vigor.
Zack’s most prized possession was his car, a 2010 Chevrolet Impala that he cared for meticulously. Zack’s love for and pride in his vehicle was demonstrative of his precise attention to detail and the care he believed all things deserved.
To all who knew or encountered him, Zack became a friend by virtue of his sense of humor, his thoughtfulness, and his caring and gentle spirit. Zack could and did light up a room with merely his presence.
Zack is survived and lovingly remembered by his parents; Grandmother Mary Lou Littlefield of Buffalo; sister Emily Elise Cloutier of Buffalo; brother Will Cloutier of Naples, Florida; stepsisters Amber Uzialko and Arica Williams (Nick Doty); nieces Arianna, Tessa, Gianna and Aubriella; nephew, Carmine; aunt Judy Cloutier; uncles Richard (Donna) and David (Kerry) Littlefield; cousins Roger (Geraldine) Coleman, Richard (RJ) and David Littlefield, Marie Murphy, Pierre (Judy) Veilleux, Joseph Murphy, and Phillip, Eric, and Jonathan Veilleux; and housemate and best friend, Brandon Morano.
Zack's family will receive family and friends on Wednesday December 27, 2017 at the John E. Roberts Funeral Home, 280 Grover Cleveland Hwy, Amherst, NY. Calling hours will be from 10:00 AM-12:00 PM with a service of remembrance beginning at Noon.
