It would have been hard to guess the purpose of Tuesday's fundraiser carwash at by the mood of the people there.
The event raised money for the joint funeral of , but the dozens of people present were smiling, dancing and laughing.
They shared fond memories of , who graduated from the school in 2010. They played football together and were "inseparable," said Lockhart's aunt, Wendy Comer.
"He was joyful," Darius' older brother, Darron, said. "He could put a smile on anybody's face."
Darron Powe-Reed said their mother died when he was 12, so they were especially close.
"That's always been my right hand man," he said.
They also have a 12-year-old brother, who "asks a lot of 'why' questions" about his brother's death, Darron Powe-Reed said.
Their memories drew dozens of friends and family Tuesday, as well as a line of cars waiting to be washed that snaked through the high school's parking lot.
Head football coach Joe Cattolico said it was good to see such a great turnout "in the face of bad circumstances."
"It's obviously a fantastic turnout and I think this is reflective of the community we have here and the young men, and how many people loved them," he said.
'He was definitely a momma's boy'
Lockhart's father, Jeffrey Bell, described his son as a loyal and motivated "hustler" who this September would have started studying to become an electrician.
"If he met you for a minute, you knew him for a lifetime," Bell said. "He never turned anybody away."
He laughed as he recalled memories of dirt biking with his sons near their former home of Tracy, and how Lockhart never woke up on time.
Lockhart's younger brother, Andrew, said he and his brother were always together.
"If somebody said Zan was coming, Drew was too," he said. "People actually started saying 'Zandrew.' "
Zan Lockhart's girlfriend, Janaye Stokes, said he was always there to give her guidance.
"He was definitely a momma's boy," Stokes said. "He does everything his mom says, like, to the T."
She also said he looked over his younger brother and sister.
Anisa, Zan Lockhart's 15-year-old sister, said he drove her everywhere and often took her shopping.
"He was like my father figure," she said.
