BIGNELL: Zachariah Evan Jacob
Passed away suddenly in Barrie on Sunday June 12, 2022. Zach attended Hants East Rural High School in Nova Scotia and completed courses in Electrical Engineering and Welding at Sir Sanford Fleming College in Peterborough. He was a member of CUSW Local and was most recently employed with Hydro One in Kincardine. Zach was a very gifted athlete in many sports including Hockey, Rugby and CrossFit but in his spare time he loved to sit and play video games with his family and friends. While in Nova Scotia Zach was a part-time deck hand and lobster fisherman but perhaps Zach’s greatest achievement was his position as Infantryman with the Hastings Prince Edward Regiment in Peterborough where he met so many dear close friends. Zach was a kind and generous man, with a contagious laugh and loved making people laugh.

Also missed by his brothers Jason (Molly Brownson) of Ottawa and Max Jaymes Bignell of Nova Scotia.
