Zandy O. Willems, age 55, of Allen, Texas passed away on Saturday, September 3, 2022, after a race accident in Wisconsin.

He was born in Lamesa, Texas on November 14, 1966, to the late Tommy Odell and Sidney Lou (Holley) Willems.

He loved playing and watching sports, especially the Dallas Cowboys, with his children and spending time outside with his family and friends. He spent his career in staffing, and in 2010 co-founded Eco-Staff LLC, with his friend and business partner Harry Black.

Outside of work Zandy enjoyed many hobbies, and his passion was for all things offroad. Zandy loved rock crawling and racing, and in 2018 bought his first race car and started Rufus Racing, an off-road racing team.

Zandy quickly became a known face in the Ultra4 and off-roading world because of his willingness to help everyone, his contagious laugh, and bright smile. He loved life and lived it to the fullest every single day.
