Zachary Anthony Wrightson
September 16, 2017
Zachary Wrightson of Archbald died Saturday at Geisinger Community Medical Center as the result of a car accident. Born in Scranton, he was the awesome son of Brian and Maria Elisa Wrightson, Archbald; and Karin and Will Stang, Dunmore. He was a graduate of Valley View High School and the Universal Technical Institute of Exton. He was employed by Scranton Dodge.
Zack was and always will be a memory maker. From the time he was a child, he always had the curiosity to try things on the edge. He loved to ski and skateboard and hated baseball. He was a talented artist with incredible vision and creativity. He always managed to have his next adventure planned, from picking scrap, remodeling his house, to selling a car on Craig’s List.
Zack was a talented grease monkey. If he wasn’t working on his latest vehicle, he was helping others with theirs. His talent earned him the respect of his colleagues at Scranton Dodge.
As in life, Zack will continue to help those with broken parts. In his last act as a helper, he has donated his organs to those in need and because of this, Zack will live on and continue to do wonderful and creative things through the individuals who receive his gift of life.
Also surviving are his two best friends, his sisters, Victoria and Alexa Wrightson, of Philadelphia; maternal grandparents, Martin and Evelyn Kuhn, of Scranton; paternal grandparents, Sharon and Anthony Wrightson, of Jessup; great-grandfather, Edward Giombetti Sr., of Jessup; a stepbrother, Kyle Glucksnis; stepsister, Jordan Zezeski; and uncles, Thomas and wife, Anne Kuhn; Marty and wife, Rebecca Kuhn; and Edward John and wife, Carissa Wrightson; two greatuncles, Edward Giombetti Jr. and Thomas Regan; and five cousins, Emily Kuhn, Jude Kuhn, Gabe Kuhn, Cooper Kuhn, Liam Wrightson.
Friends may call Tuesday from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Albert P. O’Donnell Funeral Home, 2025 Green Ridge St., Dunmore. Funeral and interment will be private. Zack was not a lover of flowers. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Gift of Life.
