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.
