CPL ZACHARY ENDSLEY FUNERAL
Army Corporal Zach Endsley 21, was known as a quiet, witty “jokester” who was full of creative talent. He was a free spirit, and he was never afraid to try new things and he knew exactly what he wanted to do. He had a quiet nature and a quick wit. Zach was a 2004 graduate of Oak Ridge High School, Texas. He enjoyed computer games, music, and drawing ad was a talented artist, even winning a poster contest in high school. Zach used laughter and pranks to entertain others and the quiet enjoyment and entertainment often came in the form of guitar music as Zach and his friends would often come home from work and gather in the living room strumming guitars.

Zach was also active in the youth group at Crossroads Baptist Church, where the family was involved in the worship ministry. Friends, neighbors, community, and church members tied yellow ribbons around tree trunks and set out flags in honor of Corporal Endsley.

As a teenager, Zach joined the Civil Air Patrol, a volunteer support organization of the U.S. Air Force, and belonged to the Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps at Oak Ridge High School. He was fascinated by guns and liked shooting them and taking them apart. After graduation, he enrolled in Montgomery College, but his interest in studying waned. He had a desire to be where the action was. This desire led Zach to explore military service as a career. He showed an initial interest in the U.S. Marines but surprised his family by enlisting in the U.S. Army in December 2005. He got a high score on a military placement test which put him in a coveted position to choose his job in the Army. He chose the Infantry. He understood the danger of war and he didn’t want to just go over there and build stuff or blow stuff up. He wanted to be where the action was. His enthusiasm also inspired a neighbor and friend to join the Army as well.

Although he was excited to be stationed in Afghanistan Zach sensed his family feared for his safety and sought to keep his communication brief often leaving out details in his attempt to protect loved ones from worry.

Private First Class Endsley was assigned to 1st Battalion, 4th Infantry Regiment, Hohenfels, Germany. He died July 23, 2007, in Arghendab district, Afghanistan, of wounds sustained when his unit was attacked by enemy forces using indirect fire.

Zachary was born July 3, 1986, in Houston, TX. Zachary Endsley is survived by his mother, Melinda Carroll; stepfather, David Carroll; father, Terry Endsley; brother, Aaron Endsley; two stepsisters, Katie Petty and Kimberly Worthington, and their families.

FAMILY PET SHOT BY ARROW

Early Monday morning Cord Clark woke up and started to head to work. When he got outside he found the families Black Lab lying dead in the front yard on Lone Star Ranch Drive in the Lone Star Ranch. There was a trail of blood across the driveway.

Later viewing the home security video they discovered he was not hit by a car. Six-year-old Lightning died at the hands of an animal abuser. Close top midnight Lightning is seen walking up to the front door with the arrow completely through his body. He stops and turns several times in an attempt to pull it out.

Then just after 1 am an SUV, possibly a Chevrolet TrailBlazer drives by very slowly with the windows open. The driver goes to the intersection and makes a u-turn. He then stops in front of Clark’s driveway, exits the vehicle and attempts to coax Lightning out of the ditch. As Lightning comes to him, he is seen pulling the arrow out and walking back to his truck with arrow in hand.

Lightning is then seen walking across the driveway dispersing a trail of blood before he goes down.

Cord Clark says he wants justice for the ones responsible.

His son, C.J. recalls how Lightning was a friendly pup who played football with him. He said, “he needs to deserve something for what he did.” C.J. said it’s not right if you in a neighborhood and just walk up to a dog and shoot it with a bow and arrow.

TEENS DROWN ON TRINITY RIVER TRYING TO SAVE A CHILD
Sunday evening several people were swimming on the Trinity River at the SH 105 bridge. A 5-year-old child became distressed in the water. Her father, identified as Abel Castellanos went in along with many others to rescue her. She was pulled to safety. The father took on an extensive amount of water and was Lifeflighted to Memorial Hermann in Houston. After all the good samaritans who assisted came out they learned two male teens were missing. The search started last night but broke for darkness. This morning just before 9 am Cypress Lakes Fire Department located on the body along the 105 bridge piling in about 50-feet of water. A short time later Tarkington Fire Department located the second body near the piling, Both teens have been sent to Beaumont for autopsy. Captain DeFoor with the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office described how dangerous the river is at this point. There have been many drownings. The surface looks smooth but currents under the water are a different story. DeFoor said when he dove a recovery mission as he went below the surface the river began to tumble him. Along with trash, debris, broken bottles, logs, and fishing lines and cable it is easy for anyone to get hung up. Along with that is the marine life. Several years ago a PHI Helicopter was being used to search for a victim. As the helicopter rounded the bend the pilot located the body but an alligator was approaching it. He used the helicopter rotor wash to scare it off until a rescue boat could approach. Large signs have been posted over the years but are torn down and used for firewood. The tens that perished are identified as Jaerson Alvarez, 18, and Wilmer Alexi Rodriguez, 17. Both were considered good samaritans who did not know the family.
