The family of Zac Evans have paid tribute to him as a "happy chap" who "constantly gave us endless laughter, fun and immense pride."
He was a happy chap and from the start we knew he would make something of his life. Even at a young age he knew exactly what he wanted and made it happen.
As he grew older, Zac and his twin brother Nathan were the best of friends and constantly gave us endless laughter, fun and immense pride. Zac was always very creative and took immense pride in taking things apart and putting them back together.
Zac would always go out of his was way to make someone feel happy. He was very proud and close to his family, friends and girlfriend Beth, and would step in to help anyone if they were in trouble. He was one of the bravest, kindest young people, I have ever had the privilege to meet. The fact he was our son, was an added bonus. Zac was a truly wonderful son, grandson, boyfriend and friend.
