On Tuesday, June 2, 2020, Zack Edmonds passed away peacefully at home in Woodland Park, Colorado with his family.
Zack was born March 5, 1966 in Boulder, Colorado to Gary and Robin Edmonds. He spent his childhood years on the west coast in California before moving to Tipp City, Ohio where he spent his high school years. He graduated from Chaminade Julienne High School in Dayton, Ohio in 1984. He then attended Washington University in St. Louis, graduating in 1988. Zack was a standout, four-year starter for the Washington University Bears men’s soccer team, leading the team to two NCAA National Championships in ‘85 and ‘87. He was recognized as the 1987 University Athletic Association (UAA) league MVP his senior year.
Zack achieved a Masters of Business Administration from Boston University in 1991.
He then entered his life-long career in the commercial banking world working for BancBoston Capital in Boston, Massachusetts.
Zack married Christine Edmonds in her hometown of Hudson, Ohio in 1993. They had three children together: Matthew, Hannah and Eric. Zack and Christine raised their children just outside Boston in historic Lexington, Massachusetts. Zack took great pride in raising his children, and coached their baseball and soccer teams as they grew up. Soccer was a special focus for Zack and his children. Countless hours were spent at the local town fields coaching and teaching the sport that he found so much success in. Zack and Christine were then divorced in 2008.
Zack lived his remaining years in Woodland Park, Colorado. He had many close friends in the Woodland Park community and worked for Park State Bank and Trust. He enjoyed taking walks in the picturesque Colorado Rocky Mountains and cooking his special Suisse fondue recipe for friends willing to indulge.
Zack is survived by his three children: Matthew Witt Edmonds (24), Hannah Cecile Edmonds (22) and Eric Robert Edmonds (16) of Lexington, Massachusetts. He is also survived by his parents, grandmother, aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends from different stages of his life.
Due to Zack’s wishes, there will not be a memorial service. His remains were cremated and the ashes will be spread on the west coast at long-beloved locations.
Donations in Zack’s memory can be made to the Men’s Soccer Program at Washington University in St. Louis.
