April 10, 2001 – July 20, 2022

Zachary Tyler Yeaman, 21, passed away unexpectedly at his home on July 20, 2022. 

He was born along with his twin brother in Kemmerer, Wyoming, on April 10, 2001, to Sara Yeaman. He lived in Kemmerer with his mother, brothers, grandparents and many cousins for the first six years of his life before moving to Logan, Utah, with his family in 2007 and lived there for two years. In 2009, he and his family moved to Lovell to be close to family in the area. He attended Lovell elementary, middle school and high school before earning his diploma from the State of Wyoming in April of 2019.

He spent three years as a laborer at Top to Bottom Construction for Martin and Rebecca Bates, who treated him like family.

Zachary was an outdoorsman and lover of animals. He enjoyed fishing or just spending the day at his favorite place on earth, Five Springs. He had a passion for poetry, weightlifting and music. He had been teaching himself how to play the violin.

Zachary had a kind soul and touched many lives during his short time on earth. He will be deeply missed.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Burnell and Janice Yeaman and Bernard and Wanda Lowe, uncle Donnie Lowe and sister Jessica Yeaman.

He is survived by his parents, Sara Yeaman and Doug Benke, of Lovell; brothers Alexander (LaKaya) Yeaman of Green River, Wyoming, Samuel Yeaman of Jueano, Alaska, and Isaac Benke of Lovell; uncles Dan (Deb) Lowe of Craig, Colorado, Kevin (Veronica) Lowe of Spanaway, Washington, Wayne (Sarah) Lowe of Garland, Wyoming, and Travis Rice of Kemmerer, Wyoming; aunts Diane (Rick) Wisniewski of Olympia, Washington, Tina (Lewis) Neilsen of Kemmerer and Deanne (Rick) Bolan of Lincoln City, Oregon; and many cousins whom he loved.

Zachary has been cremated, and services were held at Haskell Funeral Home in Lovell on Monday, July 25, at 10 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks a donation to be made to any animal rescue group in Zachary’s name or adopt a homeless animal in his honor.
