MOUNT VERNON — Zackary “Zack” Noah Allyn, 25, of Mount Vernon, Indiana, passed away Nov. 6, 2022 from injuries sustained in a car accident.

Zack was born Dec. 27, 1996 in Evansville.

Zack grew up as a farm kid that loved to be outside, riding his bike, playing in the dirt or hanging out with his dad in any tractor. Zack’s vivid imagination and gentle nature made him a delightful child. Zack loved animals of all kinds, especially his dogs, Bailey, Ellie and Mazie. He graduated from Mount Vernon High School in 2015. Zack began swimming competitively in second grade. While swimming, he met his closest friends that he would spend many hours with throughout school, college and their adult lives where they shared their enthusiasm for cars in their 812 Street Crew. Zack attended Western Kentucky where he was a proud member of AGR. He earned an associate’s degree in Business Administration from Ivy Tech in 2019. Zack’s love of farming and working with his hands led him to return to his family’s farm after college. He was an accomplished welder and a hard worker that could always be counted on to get the job done even if it took long hours. His creative mind helped overcome challenges on the farm daily. Zack was also an amazing cook that was happy to help in the kitchen or at the grill. He was the designated griller and holiday cooking assistant for many years.

In the fall of 2016, Zack met the love of his life, MaKayla Chamberlain. On July 4, 2019, Zack proposed. They were married on March 13, 2021. Zack was welcomed into the Chamberlain family where he was greatly loved and became Uncle Zacko to Haven and Ryker. Zack’s love of the outdoors created a strong bond between him and his father-in-law, Mike. Together they took hunting trips and enjoyed trap shooting. Zack never smiled more than the day he married MaKayla except for when he would talk of his twin boys, Knox Charles and Rhett David, who made an early arrival on May 13, 2022. As the oldest of four, Zack had always been great with kids, he was a phenomenal, engaged dad that loved nothing more than to be with his boys. He was so excited to have them with him at the farm so that they could enjoy the same experiences Zack had growing up.

Zack had a servant’s heart, always ready to lend a helping hand or volunteer. As a 10 year 4-H member and an active FFA member, he spent hours working with and showing livestock, as well as other projects. Zack was proud to be named Posey County Supreme Showman in 2012. After high school, Zack continued to help his younger siblings and others with 4-H and FFA. He was a Director of Posey County Farm Bureau, Inc. and chairperson of the Legislative Committee. He also just served as a voting delegate to the Indiana Farm Bureau Inc. Policy Meeting. Zack took pride in all that he did. His smile lit up every room he entered and his big hugs were THE BEST! He loved people and helping others, no matter how small or big the task.

Zack is survived by his wife, MaKayla; his twin sons, Knox Charles and Rhett David; parents, Matt and Heather Allyn.; brother, Grant Allyn; sisters, Amber and Alaina Allyn; grandparents, L. David and Donna Allyn, David and Cookie Hazelip, and Brenda Phillips; father and mother-in-law, Michael and Michaelle Chamberlain; sister-in-law, MaLeah (Robert) Young; niece, Haven Young; nephew, Ryker Young; aunts and uncles, Mike and Donna Allyn, Jennifer Allyn, Melissa Welch, and David Eric Hazelip; cousins, Bradley (Ashlee) Welch, Dylan (Amber) Welch, Jeremy (Elizebeth) Hazelip, Louis, Lindsey and Lacey Allyn.
