ZACKERY L. REA
Zackery Lee Rea, 24, of Laurel, Indiana, was born, October 29, 1996, in Cincinnati, Ohio, the son of Donald “DJ” and Lucy Rea. He passed away on Thursday, August 19, 2021.
Zackery was a member of Garrison Creek Baptist Church for most of his life but attended Grace and Truth Baptist Church in Pleasant Hill, Missouri when he could.
You could often find Zack enjoying the great outdoors as long as his dad and brother could get his wheelchair up and down the many paths he travelled. He enjoyed quality time with his mom and sister when shopping, taking a nice walk, eating out, or travelling back and forth from Indiana to Missouri. Zack’s favorite video was “Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree” and he would laugh when Pooh got stung by the bees. Zack was a devoted son, brother, grandson, cousin, and friend to many.
Zackery was preceded in death by his grandfathers, Joe Hensley and Donnie Rea.
Along with his parents, DJ and Lucy, he will be greatly missed by his brother, DJ Rea II, of Laurel; his sister, Emilee Rea, of Pleasant Hill, Missouri; grandparents, Al and Jody Abshear, of Laurel and John and Pat Gordon, of Falmouth, Indiana; many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Visitation was held Tuesday, August 24, 2021, at the Garrison Creek Baptist Church in Connersville, Indiana.
The funeral services were held Wednesday, August 25, 2021, at the church. Pastors Tim Fluty and Brent Blaise officiated. Burial was in the Laurel North Cemetery.
Urban Winkler Funeral Home of Connersville, Indiana, is honored to be assisting the Rea family with arrangements.
