Zachary James Kachwalla

January 18, 2002 ~ June 17, 2022 (age 20)


Zachary Kachwalla, “Zach,” age 20, passed away on June 17, 2022, at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick. Zach graduated from Colonia Highschool in 2020, he was a student at Middlesex Community College and was to begin Rowan University in the fall to major in Finance. Zach’s talents were many. 

He enjoyed hockey, poker, being a know-it-all about everything and he truly did not know how to be boring. 

Zach was goofy, witty, intelligent, curious about everything, inquisitive, understanding, kind, and hilarious. He was Spontaneous, revelled in deep conversations, loved planning for his future. He was constantly coming up with inventions he was always worried about other people stealing. He was mindful, lived in the moment, was a sponge for knowledge and forward-thinking. He was also incredibly competitive. 

He always had his sights on the future and made sure everyone knew he was going to be an entrepreneur. The book he was reading on his nightstand was, “The Simple Path to Wealth.”  He had it bookmarked with a dollar bill on page 165. 

Zach would want everyone to remember him by his sense of humor and his unique balance of being able to be blunt and be kind at that same time. He would never sugar-coat anything. Zach was always the life of the party and the first to do a silly dance to get the fun started. His friends say he was always the first to lend a helping hand and show up when people were in need. Zach was always in great spirits, so approachable and thrived in any setting. 

He had the oddest infinity of always falling, tripping and being extremely clumsy. 

He is survived by his parents, Debra and Mustufa Kachwalla, three sisters: Mandi Wise, Cassidy Kachwalla, and Anjali Kachwalla. 

The family will receive friends from 4 to 8 pm on Thursday 6/23 and a Remembrance will be held on Friday at 11:00AM until 12:00 Noon at Gosselin Funeral Home. (660 New Dover Road, Edison, NJ 08820.) 

The family would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who has shown their love and support through this difficult and challenging time.
