Zachary (Hi-Caliber) Canace, 45, of Brick, New Jersey received his wings on October 1, 2020 after a long courageous battle with Parkinson’s disease.  His wife was by his side ministering in song at his request.

Zac was born in Wyoming, PA and raised in Rockaway, NJ. He attended Morris Hills school district.  He had resided in the Jersey Shore area since 1993.

Zachary was joined in holy matrimony to Tracey Kearney in 2001. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, caring son, brother, nephew, uncle and trusted friend. He was a conscientious lyrist, who loved to share his music with everyone he met. Zach was the New York Jets’ #1 fan and a great debater on many topics.

Prior to his illness, Zachary held several jobs to help support his family including construction, and most recently, he appeared weekly as a musical artist on both the Monica Crowley and Jason Matera radio talk shows WABC 77 out of New York City.

He is preceded in eternal rest by his grandparents, William “Pa” Canace and Jean Canace (Paternal), and Joseph Neetz and Dorothy Neetz (maternal); and his dear uncle, Michael Canace, whom he so lovingly adored.

Zachary leaves to cherish his memories his loving wife, Tracey Kearney-Canace; children, Genesis and Zechariah Canace of Brick, NJ, Brittney Kearney, Asiah Kearney of Toms River, NJ, and Milani Figueroa of Altoona, PA; father, William Canace Jr. of Rockaway, NJ; mother, Dorothy Neetz-Quinn; step father, Michael Quinn of Toms River, NJ; brother, Jedediah Neetz; aunt, Barbara Canace (Rick Phillips); uncle, Robert Canace (Cindy Canace); 7 grandchildren, and a host of family and friends.
