Our beautiful boy, Zachary V. Lyter, was born on April 8, 1992, in Seattle.

Zachary Lyter

Zach was the beloved son of Vern and Anita Lyter and a wonderful brother to Marisa. Zach truly loved his family and friends, and always lived his life to the fullest.

He was active in school sports and a member of the Issaquah High School football team. Snowboarding, weightlifting, watching movies with his family and spending time in Roche Harbor were some of Zach’s passions in life. One of his greatest passions, though, was being at home, having his friends over and allowing his Mom and Dad to spoil him.

Zach had a charming personality with an infectious laugh — he would light up a room when he entered it. Zach is remembered as a compassionate, caring and giving young man. His many friends loved him not only because of how much fun he could have, but also that he was always true to his word and would stand beside them when needed. He will be deeply missed.

Zach passed away peacefully in his sleep on May 4, 2011.

In addition to his immediate family, he is survived by Nona Fernanda Say; grandparents Shirley Greer and Charles Lyter; great-grandparents Vern and Shirley Greer. Zach had numerous aunts, uncles and cousins whom he dearly loved. Anthony Edward Say, his double first cousin, and Hyla Gillmore, his girlfriend, held a special place in Zach’s heart.

A requiem Mass was May 9 at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, 9460 N.E. 14th St., Bellevue, WA 98004-3489. A private burial service will be held at a later time.

Friends are invited to view photos, share memories and sign the family’s online guest book at

Donations in Zach’s memory can be made to the Issaquah High School football team or the Sacred Heart School Endowment.

Arrangements are by Flintoft’s Funeral Home and Crematory, 392-6444.
