Zachary M. Bohnert, 40, Jasper

Zachary M. Bohnert, 40, of Jasper, died Tuesday, December 4, at Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center in Jasper. He was born in Evansville June 12, 1978, to Michael J. and Lynne (Meyer) Bohnert.

Zachary was a graduate of Jasper High School. He volunteered at the Dubois County Community Foundation shredding paper. He was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Jasper. He enjoyed the simpler things in life – the wind in his hair during a boat ride, the methodical movement of a car window with the press of the button, the sweet taste of Starbursts, a cold Sprite, and the comfort of rocking with a blanket in his lap while listening to his favorite music. His heart was as big as his smile.

He is survived by his mother, Lynne Bohnert, Jasper; one brother, Alex Bohnert, Colorado Springs, Colorado, one sister, Molly Gately and husband William, Montclair, New Jersey; one nephew, George Gately; and one niece, Caroline Gately.

He was preceded in death by his father, Michael J. Bohnert, his maternal grandparents, Harold and Bernie Meyer, his paternal grandparents, Paul and Anna Bohnert, and his godfather, Mark A. Bohnert.

Friends may call from 9 a.m. to noon Friday at St. Joseph Church. Memorial contributions can be made to Dubois County Community Foundation – Jasper Lions Club Eyecare Endowment, St. Joseph Church, or to a favorite charity. Online condolences can be shared at A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at noon Friday at the church with burial following in Fairview Cemetery.
