Christian Thomas Zakielarz

With loved ones by his side, Christian Thomas Zakielarz, 59, passed away at his home in Fork, MD, on Tuesday, March 24, 2020. Christian (Chris) was born on March 27, 1960, in Chester, PA, the son of the late Thomas Zakielarz and Catherine Perme. He graduated from Montgomery Blair High School in 1977. He met the love of his life, Shari (Hanratty) Zakielarz, in 1977. They were married on November 28, 1980, and shared almost 40 blessed years of marriage. Chris was a devoted husband, whose sun rose and set around his wife. Chris is survived by his three children, Brittney Stafford and her husband Erik, of Finksburg, MD, Shannon Grogg and her husband Andrew, of Bel Air, MD, and Sean Zakielarz and his wife Bailey, of Fallston, MD. Chris is also survived by his four siblings, Christina Stubbs and her husband John, Thomas Zakielarz and his wife Sheila, Matthew Zakielarz and his wife Kirsten, and Maria Connerly and her husband Jason. Chris’ dedication to his family was unwavering and unquestionable. He was the founder and President of Brinton Building Services, Inc. Chris was strong in his faith and dutifully served the congregation of St. John’s Episcopal Church, in Kingsville, MD, for many years. Chris had a kind, giving spirit; family and friends recount selfless acts that showed his true compassion for others and his protective nature. Chris’ bright smile and sense of humor quickly and easily attracted others, as he left lasting impressions upon his many friends and acquaintances. He loved playing softball throughout his life, including playing in leagues as a child and an adult, coaching his young children’s teams, and playing in leagues with his children when they were grown. Chris had a love for music, and was often seen drumming, singing, or dancing. Cremation rites have been accorded, and a memorial celebration of Chris’ life will be held at a later date, to be shared following cessation of the current state of emergency restrictions. Donations in Chris’ honor can be made to the Alzheimer’s Association.
