Following the death of a well-known Fort Worth businessman and his two children in a car accident in Central Texas the night before Thanksgiving, condolences are flooding the Fort Worth and TCU communities. His spouse made it out of the collision.

What Happened?

According to Rev. Dr. Russ Peterman, senior minister of University Christian Church, “Zach was one of those guys that was bigger than life he had a smile that could light up a room he made everybody feel better just knowing him.”

Zach Muckleroy was a former standout player for TCU football, the CEO of the construction company Muckleroy and Falls, and a proud TCU graduate.

His family has long been involved with University Christian Church in Fort Worth. “We used to joke that we often times referred to him as the mayor, anytime you’d go anywhere with him whether you go out to lunch or a TCU basketball game Zach knew everybody and everybody knew Zach,” said the Rev. Dr. Peterman.

Zach and his family were traveling to visit relatives the day before Thanksgiving when they got into a three-vehicle collision in Blanco County, which is close to Austin. Lindsay and Judson, Zach’s two children, perished. Lauren, his wife, lived.

Unspeakable Trauma

“My heart breaks for her I can’t imagine waking up and learning that your husband and two children are no longer with us, just unspeakable trauma,” said the Rev. Dr. Peterman.

Their church community hosted a vigil for the family on Friday. Youngsters wrote sincere letters to Lindsay, age nine, and Judson, age twelve.Now, as Lauren struggles with losing her entire family, other members are also penning letters to her.

“We’re doing everything we can to surround them with our love and with our prayers and the important part will be not just now, but in the days and weeks and months to come once the platitudes and the casseroles are behind them how do we continue to love them and support them,” Peterman stated.

Clay Falls has spent his entire life with Zach. “Just to get to know Zach, he was a bright spot and we need more people in the world like Zach,” Falls stated. “It’s hard to believe that he’s no longer with us and that his two beautiful kids aren’t here either.”
