Zachary Daniel “Zach” Turbiville was born to Lyman and Gail Turbiville on Feb 9, 1985, in Spearfish, SD. He unexpectedly passed away on March 8, 2023, from a massive heart attack.

Zach welcomed his baby sister, Samantha, into the family in 1987. The family lived in Camp Crook and spent a lot of time on the family ranch where he developed the strong work ethic that he carried with him throughout his life. 

The family moved to Chadron in 1998 when Zach was in the 8th grade. During his high school years, Zach enjoyed playing golf, basketball and participating in youth group activities. 

In his spare time, he worked at the Country Kitchen Restaurant. After spending a semester in Chadron State College, he decided to continue his career at Country Kitchen – eventually becoming a co-owner.

Zach enjoyed spending time with his friends playing disc golf, going to concerts, playing pick-up basketball, softball, and participating in pool leagues. 

He also enjoyed playing weekly card games (pinochle) with his parents. 

Zach was described by friends and family alike as being a genuine and caring person with a truly kind soul. His compassion and kindness were most apparent when he was playing with children of his friends and family members. 

He also loved dogs and regularly cared for friends and families’ pets while they were out of town.

Anyone who knew Zach knew that all they had to do was ask and he would be there to lend a helping hand. He will be sorely missed by everyone who had the opportunity to know him. 

Zach is survived by his dog Molly; parents Gail and Lyman Turbiville of Chadron; sister Samantha (Zack) Olson, niece Kaylee, and nephews Ryan and Ethan of Ansley, NE; He is also survived by numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins. 

Zach was preceded in death by his grandparents Dick & Marie Arnold of Boulder, MT, and Gene & Leora Turbiville of Camp Crook, SD.

The family would like to thank everyone for all of the thoughts, prayers, and calls.

Chamberlain Chapel of Chadron is in charge of arrangements for Zach Turviville.
