Zachary Frederick Radcliffe, 23, of Salem, passed from this life to eternal life on Wednesday, June 6, 2018 and now watches down and smiles from above.
When Zachary was small, he was the little man of the house, but as he grew he soon became the man of the house. He was always by his Mom’s side, always there to love and support her. His eyes and smile were so bright, you could see his heart shining through. Zach was a fine example of what a brother should be. He loved his sisters very much and went out of his way to defend them, however on more than one occasion through trickery, brother and sisterly love, and shenanigans, he may have framed them. He was the true definition of a gentleman, always there to pump your gas, open the door, and go out of his way to help others.
He is survived by his mother, Jo Ellen Orr; his father, Frederick Albert Radcliffe; two sisters, Mariah Orr and Jessica Radcliffe; grandparents, Faye and George Marquez, and John Orr; an uncle, John Alan Orr; aunt, Beverly Pelosi and numerous cousins and friends.
A celebration of Zach’s life will be held at 6PM, Monday, June 11, 2018 at the Chapel of John M. Oakey & Son in Salem. The family will receive friends for one hour prior to the service beginning at 5PM at the funeral home. An online guestbook is available for family and friends by visiting www.johnmoakey.com.
“If there ever comes a day where we can’t be together, keep me in your heart. I’ll be there forever.”
