Zachary R. Bayless

Zachary “Zakk” “Buggie” R. Bayless, 23, Lebanon, passed away, Friday, July 22, 2022, at Witham Hospital in Lebanon.  He was born on December 23, 1998, to Gary Bayless and Brandy (Laughner) Hottenstine.  On May 12, 2021, he married Tristan Kayanna Burris.  She survives.

Zakk attended The Crossing School and graduated from Clinton Central High School in 2018.  He worked for FedEx as a forklift operator and was training to become a supervisor.  He enjoyed playing Xbox, producing and making music and had aspirations to become a music producer.  He had a huge heart.  And with that heart he loved his God, his family and his friends.  He loved spending time and being outdoors with his kids, and he adored his wife.

Along with his wife, Zakk is survived by his children, Zakkariah and Trysten Bayless; his parents, Gary (Jamie) Bayless and Brandy (Josh) Hottenstine; his siblings, Jake (Shayna) Bayless, Gary J.R. (Alanna) Bayless, Breanna Wessell, Raelynn Bayless; grandparents, Ronald and Phyllis Laughner, Gary Bayless and Susan Edwards; and great grandmother, Dorothy Davis.
