Zachary Todd Shipley was born in Houston, Texas on May 13, 1979. He finished his journey on September 9, 2022.

He is survived by his beautiful daughter, Madelyn Shipley, his loving wife, Tracy Shipley, his dedicated mother, Janie Shipley, his caring father, Randolph Shipley, his aunts Martha Robertson and Pam Campbell, cousins Lauren Ratcliff and Jonathan Robertson, his father-in-law, Ken Grubbs, stepmother in law, Becky Grubbs, mother in law, Patricia Minniti, his brother in law, Chris Grubbs, sister in law, Sarah Smith, brother in law, Andrew Smith, his stepchildren, Elise and Alex Melendez, Alec Moran and his granddaughter, E'mila Melendez-Moran.

He was a proud, loving father, husband, son, friend, and grandfather. He loved all sports, especially baseball and NASCAR. His favorite team was the Astros. He enjoyed music and concerts and had

extremely eclectic tastes from his parents’ influence. He was a true Texan at heart. He was loyal and loved his friends but truly considered everyone as family. He liked so much to be silly and found humor to be a joy, that he emitted as often as he could. He loved traveling, especially to the mountains and making memories. He always had a smile and offered comfort to whoever needed it. He made such an impact in all our lives, and we'll never be the same without him.

He will live on in our hearts forever.
