Funeral services to be held Monday for Gibbs football player

Local News

Funeral services will be held today for a local Knoxville student whose life ended suddenly just over a week ago.

Visitation for Gibbs High School student and football player Zach Munday will be held Monday night from 5-7 p.m. The funeral will follow at Fairview Baptist Church on Fairview Road in Corryton.

The Knox County Sheriff’s Office tells us they’re still investigating the circumstances of Munday’s death and have yet to clarify the cause. 

Because he was an organ donor, his family says they are taking solace in the fact that he’s saving the lives of others.

From classmates to their parents, everyone we spoke with on Thursday described Munday as a wonderful kid who was everyone’s little brother.

Friends close to Munday’s family have set up a GoFundMe as a way to help his family with hospital and funeral expenses
