Devin Eric Zaharias

May 11, 1976 - April 22, 2021

On April 22, 2021, Devin was tragically taken in an accident. He left too soon but heaven gained a new special angel.

Devin was born in Salt Lake City, Utah to Dan L. Zaharias (Judy Martin) and Kathy Zaharias (Jim Hammer). He grew up and graduated from Kearns High School and served time in the U.S. Coast Guard. In 2000, he married Janet Ann Elizalde and they later were blessed with two sons: Dar Leon Zaharias and Vincent Eiram Zaharias.

Devin was always a hard-working husband and father who enjoyed gaming, music, Dr. Pepper, scouting, church and most of all family.

As a young boy, Devin attended cub scouts and earned the highest rank of Arrow or Light. He later joined The First Presbyterian Church and Troop 34. In boy scouts he earned the highest ranks of Eagle Scout and Order of the Arrow.

When his oldest son was the right age to join cub scouts, he started volunteering as leader then moved up to boy scout leader when his son joined Troop 34.

Devin was always a very caring and thoughtful soul that will be missed by many people.

He is survived by his parents: Dan Zaharias (Judy Martin) and Kathy Zaharias (Jim Hammer), his wife Janet A. Zaharias; sons: Dar Leon Zaharias and Vincent Eiram Zaharias; siblings: Ted Krans (Melissa), Michael Krans, Susan Bland (Richard), Ben Zaharias (Jennifer), and Aaron Zaharias (Michelle); and many nieces and nephews.

We will miss your smile, laughter, and hugs but our memories will sustain us til’ we meet again.
