Zak, Zak Attack or the Great Zakaroni was a goofball. When you were hurting, he wanted to comfort you; if you were working, he wanted to help you. He wanted to be a part of it all. He was an amazingly intelligent child with and early understanding of mechanical and electrical workings. He knew all the names and could explain all the differences of every dinosaur. He loved his family, his dogs, his ducks and his Legos, we can’t leave out his Legos. He enjoyed ATV’s, bikes and going fast. Zak attended Dumas Intermediate School and was getting ready for Junior High.
