Obituary for Mr. Zachary Tyler Baillio

November 28, 2000 - December 23, 2018
San Antonio, Texas | Age 18


Zachary Tyler Baillio, 18, of San Antonio, TX was born November 28, 2000 in Orlando, Florida and passed away Sunday, December 23, 2018. He was a senior at Smithson Valley High School where he was adored and admired by his teachers and friends for his courage and deep desire to learn. He gave many school officials multiple opportunities to be innovative, try new methodologies and learn how to make the world a better place for many others. He taught them well. He participated in Special Olympics and he made history as the number one, sleepy bowler. He enjoyed watching football games, tennis matches and golf, but his true love was music. He loved every nursery rhyme, the Wiggles, Wheels on the Bus and his all-time favorite, Happy Birthday to You! He was rarely without his music and when it played the whole room would fill with joy inviting all to sing-a-long which made Zachary Tyler and everyone else very happy, too.

Zachary was an angel of happiness that brought joy to many with his smile that lit up a room, deep contagious laugh and his ability to teach others about the true meaning of unconditional love. He was a warrior and fought his entire life to achieve amazing tasks that some could not even picture in their mind's eye for him. He loved. He loved deeply. Especially his family. He and his mother, Tracey had an incredible bond. She did not need his words to understand her son and he knew her heart, too. They were each other's heroes. His dad, Bobby, loved him deeply and worked hard each day to ensure that Zachary had the best care possible - that of his loving mother. He and his brother, Hayden, had a brotherly bond like no other shown through in Hayden's patience, kindness and selflessness. Together, their constant and enduring love and care for Zachary is unmatched. His faithful sidekick, Uno, stayed by his side for thirteen years and served as his loving protector. His other furry friends: Bella, Maddie, Zena and Cora also shared in the love between a boy and his dogs, but he and his furry companion Uno shared the most amazing bond. The best gift that Zachary gave to his family and pets (who were like family) was his everlasting love. He was an extraordinary and special young man truly loved by all.

His Granny and Paw Paw Payne, Lewis and Shirley, preceded him in death. They loved their Little Buddy and Sugar Man with all their hearts and are now wrapping him tightly in their heavenly, loving hands. He is survived by his parents Bobby and Tracey Baillio and his brother, Hayden of San Antonio; his aunts and uncles, Terresa and Greg Katt of College Station and Lisa and Steve Watkins of Baytown. Cousins: Brandon Watkins and fiancé Frederick Sadler and Ryan Watkins of Baytown; Lindsey and Greg Propst of College Station; and great cousins Caroline, Olivia and Everlee Propst as well as a host of extended family members and friends. He is also preceded in death by his grandmother, Earleen Baillio and survived by his grandfather, Bobby Gene Baillio of Alexandria, LA and his Uncle and Aunt, John Michael and Janet Baillio of Deland, FL.

Serving as pallbearers will be Hayden Baillio, Kevin Palmer, Steve Watkins, Greg Katt, Brandon Watkins, Ryan Watkins and Gregory Propst.

The funeral services will be held Thursday, December 27, 2018 at 1:00 PM with the Reverend Melvin Marx officiating. Arrangements are under the direction of Porter Loring Mortuary North, 2102 North Loop 1604 East, San Antonio, Texas 78232, (210) 495-8221.

A graveside service will follow at Hill Country Memorial Gardens Cemetery, Canyon Lake, 11700 Texas Hwy 46, New Braunfels, Texas 78132.

The family would like to express their deepest gratitude to the staff of Children's Hospital of San Antonio Palliative Hospice Care for the love, kindness and tender care provided to Zachary. Also, they are forever grateful to his wonderful nurses Kevin Palmer, Pamela Estevez, Gabby Quintanilla, Hailey Rodriguez and Daniella Rodriguez.

They would also like to express appreciation to their family and friends for the support provided during this very difficult time.

We celebrate Zachary's life with many loving, precious memories. The best gift that Zachary gave to all who knew him was his love. He was an extraordinary and special young man who helped make each person he touched a better human being. "Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see God." Matthew 5:8 brings us some comfort as our dear, sweet Zachary was most assuredly pure of heart. We picture him at peace, in a healthy body, dancing and singing with his Granny and Paw Paw and all the other loved ones who have gone before him at the biggest picnic and party that his granny, Shirley Payne has ever planned.
