Our deepest condolences go out to the Ondo family! Zac became a part of our family here in AZ, his presence could light up a room, his smile contagious, his big heart, amazing attitude and outlook on life is something that will never be forgotten. He was a true and genuine friend to my brothers Jeff & Chris, which is something hard to come across these days, Our Family gatherings were much livelier with Ondo there, that is for sure. He truly became like a 4th sibling to us. Zac started working for our family's concrete construction business for a short time before going back to PA to start his own contracting company. He was a hard worker and dedicated employee, but most important he always brought joy and laughter with him everywhere he went. He was a special soul that will be missed, your spirit will carry on in our hearts forever, never forgotten, this is not goodbye, just so long for now. RIP!
